The Philadelphia 76ers look to capitalize on the momentum they have in game 3 of their series with the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. Up to date odds for this game can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The 76ers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall, but just 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600 and 18-38 ATS in their last 56 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. The Bulls on the other hand are 21-10 ATS in their last 31 road games and 38-14-2 ATS in their last 54 games following a S.U. loss, but just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
It looked as though the Bulls were going to cruise to a game 2 victory until the 76ers suddenly woke up. They woke up to the tune of outscoring the Bulls by a score of 36-14 in the all important third quarter. The Bulls were able to close out game one, but his absence proved to much to overcome in a full game without him in game 2. Chicago had a 55-47 lead at half time, but again saw that lead disappear in the 3rd as the Sixers shot 59% from the field as well.
Chicago’s performance last night in the second half was confusing at best the other night. The strange part was seeing their defense struggle so much, as that is usually the strength of their team. We can’t just jump ship on the Bulls which is why we are picking them again in this one but before placing a wager pick up sportsbook promotion codes.
