The under is 4-1 in Bulls last 5 overall. The over is 33-16-2 in Magic last 51 overall. The under is 20-6 in the last 26 meetings.
The Chicago Bulls are still la young team that's learning how to win consistently, but I expect them to bounce back here after losing to the Magic last night. The Orlando Magic are one of the worst teams in the league and one win doesn't move the needle a whole lot. In fact, the Magic haven't won back to back games since January 4-6. The Bulls are the better team here and had their chances to win last night despite allowing 52 percent shooting from the field. Give me the road team.
