The Bulls are in the City of Brotherly Love on Wednesday night to play the 76ers, who are -6 home favorites. However, it’s the total that could hold all the value for your NBA picks.

That’s just going to make their bad defense even worse.</p><p>The Sixers aren’t without their own injury concerns; they also will likely be without a couple of their key guard role players. However, with the defense potentially shaky in this one, I like the over a lot for my <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/nba/" title="Free NBA Picks">NBA picks</a> in what could be a fast-paced game.</p><p>The Sixers have cashed the over in four of their last five games overall, and they are 5-1 cashing the over in their last six home games. The Bulls, on the other hand, are 5-2 cashing the over in their last seven games overall, and on the road this season they are an impressive 16-8 cashing the over.</p><p>Earlier in the season these teams played to a 117-115 final score in Chicago. Tonight in Philadelphia, I see a similar final score that will surpass the total on the <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/" title="NBA Odds">NBA odd board</a>. These teams have combined to cash the over at 28-21-1 against Eastern Conference opponents, and in non-divisional games they are a combined 39-31-1 cashing the over.</p><p>With the Sixers playing at a pace of nearly 103 possessions per game this season, and the Bulls playing at a pace of 101.1 over the last month, look for this one to be fast paced and with little defense.</p>
