Warriors vs. Bulls Pick

NBA Predictions: Is total set too high for Warriors at Bulls? 1/17/18

Are the Golden State Warriors and the host Chicago Bulls going to stay under the projected total tonight when they meet at 8PM ET?

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Wednesday morning, the public betting info for this game had not been released. Check back later for an update.

Injury Report: Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is dealing with a calf contusion and it is unknown whether he will play tonight. Draymond Green is dealing with shoulder soreness and is questionable. For the Bulls, Cameron Payne is out until the end of January as he recovers from foot surgery.

Who the Trends Like: Golden State is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall, but only 4-10-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Chicago. The under is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Chicago.

Who We Like: As potent as the Warriors' offense is, they are only 24-21 on overs this season. Chicago has played with a fast tempo over the last month and doesn't play a lot of defense, so it doesn't surprise that it is 24-16 on overs this season. The Bulls were playing slower when the two squads met on Nov. 24 and Golden State put the hammer down at the Oracle by a count of 143-94. I don't expect the Warriors to score as many tonight, but they'll still put up their fare share. With Green out, it hurts their defense. I like the over to hit here with the way these two squads love to play.
