You guys know I'm not a fan of huge chalk and usually avoid it whenever possible. The Wings aren't a bad basketball team and already has two road victories under their belt. But I like the over in this spot. Both teams are averaging more than 80 points per game and the over has hit in the Wings last four games.
Expect a lot of points here.
