Sunday NBA game pick of the day: Bulls vs 76ers — sure, Philly is a better team at home, but is Chicago +11 too much to pass up?

2-0 Saturday, 91-86-1 overall.

Bulls (+11) @ Sixers (213.5)

Pick: Bulls +11

This number certainly feels like an overreaction to Philly’s 119-107 win against Memphis on Friday night. The game wasn’t that close either as the Sixers led by 14 at half and by 31 after three quarters. While the 76ers are undoubtedly a different team in South Philadelphia than on the road, they still lost all four games on their recent road trip by double digits. Now all of a sudden after just one win Philly is favored by 11 points? The Bulls haven’t been kind to us recently but who are we to hold a grudge? This point spread just feels inflated enough to where we’ll back Chicago again.
