The Chicago Bulls are a -1.5 favorite at home versus the Philadelphia 76ers.  Both teams have been hot this season with Chicago owning a 33-19 record Straight Up and 30-21-1 Against The Spread.  Philly is 31-21 SU with a .500 record ATS.  The line is fairly accurate based on's findings.


Philadelphia having lost two straight is definitely the team to hone in on.  This is especially true considering they have won the last nine games in this series.  We are all over the 76ers here at +1.5 for that reason.

76ers are also 8-1 Against The Spread in their last 9 games following a ATS loss.

The 76ers are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Bulls are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS win.

Nikola Vucevic was stellar with a season-best 36 points to go along with 17 rebounds and three blocked shots for Chicago in their 122-115 win over the Indiana Pacers on Friday.

The ball consistently rotated through Vucevic and the plan worked.

"We got Vooch the ball a lot inside, but we could have gotten more," Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said. "They were trapping, and that got us a lot of good open shots, but we didn't shoot the ball great. That happens on a back-to-back. We generated good shots when Vooch got the ball."

The Sixers will look to rebound after a 107-98 loss Friday night on the road against the Dallas Mavericks.
