The Chicago Bulls (39-25) will try to snap their four-game losing skid when they visit the Philadelphia 76ers (39-24) Monday night at Wells Fargo Center. Tip-off in this pivotal Eastern Conference matchup will be at 7 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Bulls vs. 76ers odds and lines, and make our expert NBA picks, predictions and bets.
The Bulls got a couple of days off after losing back-to-back games to the Milwaukee Bucks (118-112 Friday) and Atlanta Hawks (130-124 Thursday). They’re now just 1-4 since the All-Star break, with their only win being a 112-108 victory over the Hawks in the first game since the break.
Chicago’s recent schedule hasn’t been easy, though, and it’s been an underdog in each of its last four games. The Bulls failed to cover the spread in any of those contests, losing three games by 6 points and another by 13.
The Sixers have been great with G James Harden on the floor. In his four games played, they’re 4-0 with three double-digit wins by an average margin of 14.5 points. He sat out their last game due to a hamstring injury, which they lost in a 99-82 blowout to the Miami Heat. Philadelphia’s defense continued to play well, but the offense went ice cold without Harden in the lineup.
