Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls surprisingly stayed put at the trade deadline despite clamors of trading for a game-changing player. Their recent loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, 125-119, only proved that they are still a piece or two away from becoming a really good team. Zach Lavine once again led the scoring with 22 points, while Chandler Hutchinson contributed 16 points.

Players to Watch: Zach Lavine (24.9 PPG, 4.8 RPG and 4.1 APG)

Lauri Markkanen (15.0 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 1.5 APG)

Wendell Carter Jr. (11.7 PPG, 9.9 RPG and 1.2 APG)

Philadelphia 76ers Betting

The Sixers are an elite team that is still looking for consistency midway into the season. Since returning from injury, Joel Embiid has had big games and also had off nights that would make any Sixers fan scratch their head. In their losing skid-snapping win over the Memphis Grizzlies, Ben Simmons recorded 22 points and 10 assists and Tobias Harris tallied 21 points, six rebounds and five assists. Embiid had a pedestrian double-double with 10 points and 10 boards.

Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (22.7 PPG, 12.0 RPG, 3.2 APG)

Tobias Harris (19.2 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 3.0 APG)

Ben Simmons (16.7 PPG, 7.8 RPG, 8.3 APG)

Chicago Bulls vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Picks

The Bulls and the Sixers already played each other once this season with Philadelphia earning a 100-89 victory. Philadelphia is underachieving but their 3-0 record against Chicago in their last three meeting certainly influenced odds makers of major sports betting sites to hike up the spread margin for this game.

Moneyline: Bet on the Sixers at -800. Philadelphia is a cool 23-2 SU at home this season.

ATS: Pick the Bulls to cover the spread. Like I said, the Sixers have been a little bit shaky as of late. They will sure win this game but I think their lapses on both ends will allow the Bulls to keep their losing margin under 10 points.

TOTALs: Bet on the UNDER. The Bulls had a shootout with the Pelicans, 119-125, in their last game while the Sixers scored 119 points against a tough Grizz team. However, the last time they played each other, the total score reached 189 points.

Score Prediction: 115 – 107 Sixers
