Over/Under Total Pick:
The 76ers have failed to score 100 points in 4 consecutive games and 7 of their last 8 so not expecting much of an output tonight against a solid Bulls defense. Chicago has scored over 100 in both games against Philly this season, but average only 92.2 points on the road and we feel they’ll be closer to that total in this game. 76ers’ games are on a big under trend of late with 7 of the last 8 falling under the posted total. Take the UNDER 196.
