Wednesday's NBA Free Pick: Philadelphia 76ers -2.5

A lot of people are going to look to fade Chicago on a back-to-back set, but that's not why you should take Philadelphia in this matchup. The Bulls are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games when their starters combine for more than 160 minutes the previous day.

The reason my money is on the 76ers is due to the fact that they will be out for revenge against a team they are very familiar with (met in the playoffs). The Bulls defeated the 76ers 93-88 just 11 days ago in Chicago in a game that was close from start to finish.

This time around the Bulls will be without starting shooting guard Richard Hamilton, who had 15 points in that first meeting.

The other key here is that the 76ers are coming off a 104-97 home win over the Pistons. Philadelphia is an impressive 32-18 ATS in home games after playing a home game over the last 3 seasons. Chicago is also just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games vs a team with a winning record. BET THE 76ERS!
