Bulls are listed at -4. Get them as long as they are cheap.
Brooklyn doesn't have at good record when playing in Chicago. Nets are playing 2nd of b2b. Bulls play on 1 day rest.
The total is really low at 182.5

Nets:
Brooklyn playing on a b2b so I expect Kevin Garnett to sit this one out. From the past b2b this season I would say that he is questionable although he just played 15 minutes yesterday; so there is the chance that he will play in b2b's.

Reggie Evans is out again for Brooklyn due to personal reasons.

Bulls:
Carlos Boozer is expect to return to the lineup tonight. Taj Gibson did a good job as a backup starter for Boozer offensively and defensively.

I like the Bulls in this one too but any idea why the line moved to -3.5? You seemed pretty confident that it would go the other way. Just trying to figure out if now's the best time to buy in or if it might get to -3. I also like the looks of the Under. Slow paced game and Bulls will control the boards.

I assume that teams like Brooklyn and some other teams around metropolitan areas attract more action (NY obviously bigger than CHI) Nets played yesterday vs Charlotte and tonight are the last games before the all-star break (this one and OKC vs LAL). Some may be impressed with their play from yesterday.

I don't want think too much into this but their could be different reasons for it. But I have not any injuries or player news that would moving the line in favor of the Nets. It opened at -4; or maybe some people disagree with Chicago covering by -4.

Brooklyn lost the only matchup this season versus Chicago when their roster was depleted on the December (Christmas) game.
Historically Brk has lost 12 of their last 15 in Chicago.

The under 182.5 seems kind of low; but Brooklyn limited their last two opponents to 170 points (on 38.8% shooting) in their last two games. Consider that these two opponents were Charlotte and New Orleans. Both teams have to bring their D for tonight's game to cash for the under 182.5. I like the under but somehow have the feeling that one team will slip away and turn it to an over affair.

i like the over here, i got it at 182.5 , its slowly rising. Last game before the break, they wont hunker down on D as much and it might turn out to be a shootout. Even if not, i still see it going mid 180's

One team trying to get over .500 and another trying to stay above .500. I see defense and a close knit game.

Pick safety, Bulls -2, first half. Chicago is awful in the 4 quarter and BN are playing very good in this part of the game.
