NBA Matchup: Chicago Bulls @ Indiana Pacers
Game Date/Time: Thursday, April 21, 2011 @ 7:05 ET
Location: Conseco Fieldhouse- Indianapolis, Indiana

NBA Odds: Chicago Bulls -4.5
Over/Under Odds: 189

Game Analysis: The Pacers have stayed closer then expected in both of the first two games in this series. They covered the spread in both games one and two with game one going over the posted total and game two staying under the total. The Bulls find themselves favored by 4.5 points for game three on the road with a total of 189. I fully realize Indiana has looked good in the first two games of this series, however the Bulls have been able to hold serve at home and can look to put the hammer down on this series with a win on the road in game three. Chicago has played at Indian twice this season winning 99-86 in January and losing 115-108 in March. Their effort on defense in the January win was the difference and I am looking for a big defensive effort from the Bulls in Indiana for game three. The Bulls know from their loss in March that an up and down type of game with Indiana is not putting their best foot forward. The Pacers have played excellent defense on the Bulls in the first two games forcing Derrick Rose to use some of his MVP magic to will Chicago to wins. I am expecting another great defensive game from Indiana and if they can force Rose’s teammates to be the ones who beat them they might be able to get the win at home as an underdog. I am more interested in the total in this game which is posted at 189. I am picking under 189 in this game as this series has been dominated by defense thus far and the change in venue to Conseco Fieldhouse won’t change that a bit. This may be the lowest scoring of the first three games as both teams have a good idea by now what the other wants to do and how to stop it. Look for a game played below 90 points by both teams as the Pacers will fight to keep it close at home and avoid a 3-0 deficit.
