76ers 110, Bulls 99
The 76ers, as good as they’ve been this season, are having a relatively tough time on the road. They are 18-14 away from home, but the Bulls are struggling at home, where they are only 12-19 on their home pitch. The 76ers have won four in a row and the Bulls have lost three games. It is chalky but expect a Philly win. Take the 76ERS (-275).
Philadelphia is 14-16-2 ATS on the road this season and has failed to cover the spread in their last three road games. The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last five games, but are 33-31 ATS in total. At the United Center, however, they are only 13-18 ATS. They scored 98 points or less in three consecutive games and will struggle to keep up with a healthy 76ers team. Take the 76ERS -7 (-110).
Both teams go Under than Over more often this season. The 76ers even have the second lowest Over percentage on the road this season with 37.5%. Add to that the low 41.9% Over rate at home at Chicago, and you have a recipe for a game that scores relatively low. The Bulls average exactly 100 points per game in their last five games. Take UNDER 215.5 POINTS (-110).
