The Chicago Bulls look for a victory after splitting their last 10 games. The Chicago Bulls are averaging 101.4 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 102.8 points on 44 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 21.2 points and 5.4 rebounds while Pau Gasol is averaging 16.5 points and 4.2 assists. Nikola Mirotic is grabbing 5.5 rebounds and E'Twaun Moore is dishing 1.7 assists.

The 76ers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The Bulls are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
After being bounced from the playoff race, I'm not sure the Bulls are going to give a damn about this contest. Chicago is going to make a lot of offseason moves and the last thing on its mind is a meaningless game against the 76ers. I'll take my points, but the better bet would be to leave this game alone.
