Score: 105 - 80
Point Spread: +9½/-105 Charlotte
The Charlotte Bobcats are showing some of their best value of the season Monday as a 9-point home underdog to the Philadelphia 76ers. The betting public refuses to back this team with any regularity because they own the league's worst record. Now is the time to ride Charlotte.
The Bobcats have finally gotten healthy, which means they are a much better team than they were in the first half. Charlotte has quietly gone 6-3 ATS in their last nine games overall. They have covered two in a row with impressive showings at Dallas (96-101 loss) and versus Toronto (107-103 victory).
Philly is not playing well right now as they are 0-3 SU & 0-3 ATS in their last three games overall. They did play some tough games during this stretch, but they were not even really competitive. The 76ers lost at Indiana 94-111, versus Miami 78-84, and at Chicago 80-89. After playing three of the best teams in the East, the 76ers are going to have a hard time getting up for Charlotte mentally.
The 76ers are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games. The Bobcats are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. Charlotte is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Bobcats are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home meetings with the 76ers. The home team has won 8 of the last 10 in this series. Roll with the Bobcats Monday.
