This market owes us after last night. We could have swept if Minnesota scored three more points, but I have faith in Chicago to get us our get back here. Chicago may be on the second leg of a back-to-back, but there are too many encouraging signs that lead me to believe that this is a bet we’ve gotta take.

Chicago averages 29.0 points per first quarter which ranks perfectly for the league average, landing them in 15th place. We only need 28 here, so we find ourselves getting a full-point discount. Additionally, Chicago has faced off against Detroit twice this year and has cleared this number both times. Chicago has scored 31 and 33 points in the first quarter against the Pistons this year, clearing this bet easily in both games.

Detroit’s only major lineup change is acquiring James Wiseman. With Jalen Duren sidelined and Wiseman starting, that helps our case, if anything. Wiseman is a gifted offensive talent but is still a very raw defender. Detroit has allowed 28+ 1st quarter points in 10 of their last 12 games. Also, Bagley should see some minutes off the bench for Wiseman, and he is also a negative defender. Lavine should play his typical ten first-quarter minutes, leaving an offensive threat out there for the majority of the period. I’ll be in attendance for this one, cheering our bet on; let's roll!
