The Pick: Knicks/Bulls Under 225.5.
The New York Knicks and Tom Thibodeau finally figured out the right rotation. Since they made that switch the New York Knicks lead the league in defensive rating by a whopping 5.8 points. The Bulls meanwhile just got Zach Lavine back but it’s actually hurt their offense, as his numbers are down across the board since he returned. Against a strong NY Knicks defense, expect those struggles to continue. It comes as no surprise that the Knicks Under has cashed in 6 straight games, 5 straight on 2 days rest, 4 straight following a SU win, and 8 of their last 10 road games. The Under has also hit in 6 of their last 7 meetings with Chicago and 4-0 L4 meetings in Chicago. For Chicago, the Under is 7-1 L8 Home games, 5-0 L5 home games vs teams with a winning record, 9-3 L12 games played on 2 days rest, and 22-8 L30 games following a straight up loss. Cash in on the Under easy tonight.
