10* PLAY-BOOK ~ AMAZING 55-35 (+$12,500) s/ APRIL 5TH!
(NBA) Philadelphia vs. Chicago,
05/03/2021 9:00 PM, Score: 106 - 94
Point Spread: 7.00 | -105.00
The set-up: I think the Bulls catch the 76ers at the right time here. Clearly, if we just went by each team's offensive and defensive seasonal averages, then we'd be taking Philadelphia 9 times out of 10, but in this case, Philly is off a hard-fought 113-111 OT win just last night in San Antonio, and several of its starters will be rested here, or see very limited time. Philly has a night off after this before a game at Houston, so the temptation to get caught "looking ahead" is there as well.
The pick: Despite who is or isn't playing for Chicago today, the Bulls have performed well for bettors in this spot by going 7-2 ATS in their last nine in trying to revenge a SU/ATS road loss in which they allowed 125 or more points in (lost 127-105 on March 11th.) Chicago has lost three straight. It has two whole nights off after this before a game at Charlotte. I say the Bulls come to play tonight. No outright, but a nail-biter until the end. Grab the points.
This is a 10* PLAY-BOOK on the Bulls.
