NBA Betting Trends
The Pelicans are 7-2-1 against the spread in their last 10 road games and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall.
The Bulls are 17-37 against the spread in their last 54 home games and 6-20 ATS in their last 26 games as a home underdog.
The 76ers won the first meeting between these two on Christmas Day, 121-109. The 76ers are a mess right now, especially on the road. Their offense has been lackluster and their defense is almost non-existent. Milwaukee is at home, where they put up big numbers. Their defense still is pretty solid as well and they will force Philly to shoot the ball from the outside, which is their weakness.
NBA Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -9
