Bet on Pelicans vs. Bulls

The Pelicans have a dominant interior duo which can impact a game defensively as teams shy awy from driving the paint and instead settle for contested jumpers. While the Bulls put up 105 points at Orlando, for the most part it is a struggling and youthful offense trying to find its way. The under seems like the smart play here.
