The Chicago Bulls look for a win after splitting their last six games. On the season, the Bulls are averaging 100.6 points on 44.1 percent shooting and are allowing 98 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Pau Gasol is averaging 18.4 points and 11.8 rebounds while Derrick Rose is averaging 18.1 points and 4.9 assists. Aaron Brooks is dishing 3.1 assists and Taj Gibson is grabbing 6.4 rebounds. The Chicago Bulls are shooting just 41.2 percent from the field in their last five games but have won eight of their last 11 when allowing less than 100 points. The Bulls have won seven of their last eight games on their home court. Jimmy Butler is questionable with a calf injury.
The 76ers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games. The Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 6-16 ATS in their last 22 games following a ATS win. The underdog is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Bulls are as healthy as they've been all season and are still fighting for that third seed in the East. I'll eat the big chalk even if I don't like high numbers.
