The Sixers have covered the number almost 63 percent of the time on the season and at home, that rate of return soars to nearly 75 percent with a 23-8 ATS mark at the Wells Fargo Center. Many will fade the Sixers because they played last night but we know this club is 5-0 ATS over their last five when playing on no rest. Let's grab the points and keep making money with the 76'ers at home.<strong>  </strong></p><p style="text-align:center"> </p><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Free NBA Pick:</strong> 76'ers +5 </h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Best Line Offered: <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4418&amp;book=5dimes" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet Only With The Best">at 5Dimes</a></h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3068620, "sportsbooksIds":[19,1096,999996,1389,1252], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/la-clippers-vs-chicago-bulls-3068626/" title="Shop Live Odds For This Game"><strong>Clippers (36-25 SU, 30-31 ATS) vs. Bulls (31-30 SU, 31-30 ATS)</strong></a></h2><p>* Chicago is  9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a home underdog.</p><p>* Chicago is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS win.</p><p>* Chicago is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.</p><p>* Chicago is 5-0 ATS in their last five when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.</p><p>* Los Angeles is 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a straight up loss.</p><p>* Los Angeles is 0-4 ATS in their last four after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.</p><p>* Los Angeles is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games as a road favorite.</p><p>* Los Angeles is 0-5 ATS in their last five games playing on zero day's rest.</p><p>The Clippers have now failed to cover the number in four straight, including last night's 112-101 road loss to the Bucks, and must now face a surging Bulls team that has won and covered in five of their last six contests. In addition, the road-weary Clippers have not fared well in the second leg of back-to-backs with a 0-5 ATS mark over their last five when playing on no rest.
