Basketball Odds: Chicago Bulls vs. Philadelphia 76ers

May 14, 2012 NBA Basketball

A postseason that started out as a hopeful playoff for the Chicago Bulls has become a nightmare. The injuries to Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah have substantially dampened the mood and prompted the Philadelphia 76ers to win three straight games before the Bulls could come back on Tuesday. The Bulls will be traveling to Philadelphia tonight in the hopes of forcing a final game in Chicago on Saturday.

The Bulls have struggled in terms of shooting throughout the series. The Bulls are making less than forty percent of their three point shots and are 11-18 in free throws per game. Check the Sportsbook Odds for Chicago Bulls vs. Philadelphia 76ers game.

The Philadelphia 76ers struggled in offense during Tuesday’s 77-69 loss to the Bulls. The 76ers had a 32.1% field goal percentage in that game, the lowest percentage the team has had all season long. The team has not passed the 40% mark in their past three games.
