FREE NBA PICK: Charlotte Bobcats +16
Charlotte vs. Philadelphia,
01/27/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 72 - 89
Point Spread: +16/-105 Charlotte
It might seem like an easy play to lay the 16-points and roll the 76ers tonight, but my money is on the Bobcats to keep this game closer than expected. I understand that Charlotte is dealing with a bunch of injuries, but anytime you show this much disrespect to a team, favoring the other team by 16 points, it tends to bring out the best in them.
The 76ers know they can win this game with their backups, and I have a hard time seeing this team being all that motivated to play their best basketball. Knowing that they have to play another game on Saturday, only adds to them not laying it all on the line tonight.
Charlotte has been a double-digit underdog 7 times this season, they are 5-2 ATS in those games! Charlotte is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog of 11.0 or greater and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600! BET THE BOBCATS!
