76ers at Bulls: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

76ers 110, Bulls 99

Money line (ML)

The 76ers, as good as they have been this season, have relatively struggled on the road. They are 18-14 away from home, but the Bulls struggle at home, where they are only 12-19 on their home court. The 76ers have won four in a row and the Bulls are on a three-game losing streak. It is chalky but expect a Philly win. Take the 76ERS (-275).

Against the spread (ATS)

Philadelphia is 14-16-2 ATS on the road this season and has failed to cover the spread in their last three road contests. The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last five games but are 33-31 ATS overall. However, at the United Center, they are only 13-18 ATS. They scored 98 or fewer points in three straight games and will struggle to keep up with a healthy 76ers team. Take the 76ERS -7 (-110).

Over/Under (O/U)

Both teams go Under more often than they go Over this season. The 76ers actually have the second-lowest Over percentage on the road this season at 37.5%. Add in Chicago's low 41.9% home Over percentage, and you have a recipe for a relatively low-scoring game. The Bulls are averaging exactly 100 points per game in their last five contests. Take UNDER 215.5 POINTS (-110).
