LINE MOVEMENT

Detroit opened as an 11-point home favorite tonight to beat Chicago but the line has climbed a full point-and-a-half to 12.5 at the majority of online sportsbooks. As for the total, it has stayed steady at 210 after also hitting the board at that same number.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 53% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Bulls to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 77% of the betting tickets are on the under.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

Zach LaVine (knee) remains out for the Bulls and both Lauri Markkanen (rest) and Kris Dunn (toe) are also out for Chicago. On the other side, Jon Leuer (ankle, out for the year) is the only played listed on Detroit's injury report.

BETTING STRATEGY

Under bettors have loved recent meetings between these two teams. In the last five meetings in Detroit, the under is 4-1. In the last seven meetings between these two teams ovreall, the under is 5-2.

That said, the Bulls have been a great 'over' team of late, cashing the over in four of their last five games. The over is also 5-1 in Chicago's last six games coming off al oss, is 4-0 in its last four games following a loss of more than 10 points, and is 23-8 in the Bulls' last 31 road games when facing a team with a winning home record. They aren't playing a ton of defense at the moment and have been brutal on the road. I see plenty of value in the over tonight.
