While it's not an official bye on the schedule, teams playing Philadelphia lately have not only enjoyed victory but one that's been pretty easy to attain. A rough physical team like Chicago could put the already disinterested 76er players out of the action rather early. Of course, in sports betting you don't play the game, you play the number and it's been skyrocketing in Philly games.
The 76ers losing streak has now reached 21 games. Interestingly enough, Philadelphia still isn't the worst team in the NBA as that distinction belongs to Milwaukee. On a side note, Philly has only covered the spread in 5 games during their epic skid, something even more concerning considering the 15, 16, and 21 point spreads they've been getting.
Chicago is arguably the most business like team in the NBA and Coach Thibodeau will preach that the Bulls get in, get the win, and get on to the next one. Chicago is fighting for the 3rd playoff seed in a dead heat with Toronto and will look to take advantage of the 76ers on Wednesday.
Philadelphia's season is so bad you can remember almost every one of their 15 victories, one of which was against the Bulls in the 3rd game of the season during the 76ers' 3 game win streak to start the year. Of course, Chicago redeemed themselves in a 25 point win January 18th in Chicago. The Bulls were able to easily cover the -8.5 line by limiting Philadelphia to 12 points in the 2nd quarter which also pushed the total well under the 197 number.
Chicago is 17-16-0 ATS on the road this season
Chicago is 16-17-0 against the over/under on the road this season
Philadelphia is 9-26-0 ATS at home this season
Philadelphia is 17-17-1 against the over/under at home this season
