NBA FREE PICK: Take Chicago. According to latest NBA Trends, the 76ers are 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games playing on 0 days rest, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Central and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. Chicago is 5-2 ATS L7 at home in series. Favorite is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings and home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

Both teams are missing key players. Chicago doesn't even star guard Derrick Rose, but they've made out ok. Philadelphia is playing without big man Andrew Bynum and they've struggled at times up front. Chicago still has a great frontcourt led by Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer. They rank 5th in the league in points allowed at 92.3ppg but its their boardwork that separates them from the Sixers. Boozer (9.6rpg) and Noah (9.7rpg) are a tough matchup for any team, especially one that lacks their starting center. Since the Sixers are off a tough game the night before against Charlotte, expect the Bulls to physically wear them down and cover the game later in the second half.
