The Philadelphia 76ers are still fighting for playoff seeding, so they should be out to win this game, but they're not a team I trust with big chalk. The 76ers are way too inconsistent, they win at home by an average of just 2.6 points, and they're 4-9 against the spread as a double-digit favorite. The Detroit Pistons have also played some of their best ball over the last month and are a lot more competitive. The Pistons have also been covering machines lately. I'll grab the free buckets here.
