Chicago Bulls vs. Detroit Pistons

If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Sunday when the Chicago Bulls and the Detroit Pistons meet at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Chicago won its last outing, an 87-86 result against the Magic on April 5. The Bulls failed to cover in that game as an 8-point favorite, while the 173 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

In their last action, Detroit was a 107-101 loser on the road against the Timberwolves. They earned a push of the 6-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (208) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
