Philadelphia 76ers vs Chicago Bulls prediction

The Philadelphia 76ers are on the end of a back to back, and this could be a tough spot if they're still without their best player in Joel Embiid. The Chicago Bulls have the rest advantage, they're at home, and they beat the 76ers a couple of weeks ago despite being 10.5 point underdogs. The Bulls are playing their best ball of the season, and they've covered 7 of their last 10 games. This has a lot to do with the status of Embiid, but at the time of this writing, I'm siding with the Bulls.
