Bulls-76ers Sharp Report

At the earliest books to market, this total opened around 217. As more joined the party, openers fell to 216.5, 216, and in some cases as low as 215.5.

In other words, sharps made quick work of this number.

Since Joel Embiid went down four games ago, the 76ers are 3-1 to the under, which may be a bit surprising given the center’s defensive value this season. On the season, the Sixers have been a whopping 8.9 points per 100 possessions worse defensively without their anchor down low.
