Bettors with short memories will only remember PHI beating the crap out of CHI on the road and think "OMG of course they are going to run them off of the court at home!" and the books have them lay only -1.5? That screams too easy. As depeche mentioned, CHI off of a loss is deadly regardless of situation. I'll ride with 15-1 in a stat like that, as that tells me its not just one guy making that 15-1, its an entirely keyed in coaching staff and team effort rising after losses. I love that.

 To me, the books are hoping bettors pound Philly ... if the line makes no sense then the other side is likely the right play I think!  BOL!!!

The bettors won and Bulls are deflated and going to be sent packing soon like the years before.  Remember Celts then Heat. Now Sixers.  Sorry as soon as Rose went down, I am taking the Heat for Eastern Conf. Champs.  Did you see Lebron dismantle Knicks in the 4th quarter.  Goodness, they have no bench but no matter.
