The Bulls went 3-4 against the spread in that series with the total going OVER in five of the seven games.

The Atlanta Braves came into this series with the best record in baseball, but Detroit has outscored them 17-4 in the first two games of this series.

ESPN will have national coverage of this one on Sunday Night Baseball.
The Indiana Pacers have jumped out to a 2-0 lead in this series. The pressure is on Atlanta in Game Three.

Philadelphia dropped two games yesterday in Cincinnati, and the Phillies are quickly falling far behind the Braves and Nationals in the NL East. Two star pitchers will be on the mound in this one.
