LINE MOVEMENT: The Nets opened as 4.5-point favorites but the spread has been bet up to 5, while the over/under opened at 183 but that too is on the rise. While some books still list the total at 183, some places now list the over/under at 183.5 or even 184.

NBA FREE PICK: Take the over. Chicago (45-38 SU, 36-47 ATS, 38-44-1 O/U) fell to the Nets on Saturday, but had won two straight before that. Brooklyn (50-33 SU, 40-40-3 ATS, 42-40-1 O/U) won three straight games and seven of their last eight. Three of their last four games have gone over between these two teams. Brooklyn has gone over in three straight games and five of the last six. The Bulls are struggling without Derrick Rose (knee) and a limited Joakim Noah (foot). The big man played just 13 minutes in the opener and scored just four points. But more importantly, the Nets shot 56 percent from the floor against the Bulls' vaunted defense. They also exposed them in the paint as Brook Lopez (21 points) to advantage of a gimpy Noah. Point guard Kirk Hinrich is also bothered by a thigh injury and while he may go, he won't be 100 percent. That means another big game from guard Deron Williams (22 points), who after a slow start this season, is back to All-Star form. Nets scored more than 100 points in their last seven wins. Chicago is too banged up to stop the Nets and the Bulls will score enough to go over.
