Winless Sunday. Let's get them back Monday.
Philadelphia 76ers -3.5
Bucks and 76ers are pretty much even in most aspects. Both teams relies heavy on their backcourt and their defense to win games. IMO, the 76ers would come up on top because they've played exceptional defense after the two setbacks from the Knicks. In 4 of their Wins, they've only allowed their opponent up to 80 points. 76ers are also more effecient scoring at home. 76ers wins this one and cover.
Boston Celtics +3.0
Or the ML if you want a wee bit more for your buck. The Celtics is starting to come alive now. Looking at their last 5 results won't do them any justice but they are looking really well compared to when they played their first few games. Players are understanding and now settling to their roles and it will only take a bit more time for them to start clicking. Bulls have played 5 of their first 6 games at home but isn't back to the elite defensive team they were. They are playing really good defense but are lacking in players who can create them buckets. Carlos Boozer has slowly been regressing lucky for the Bulls, Noah has polished his inside game. I see this game being a classic grind out with the team who has a bit more offensive punch off them winning.
Denver Nuggets -4.5
Backing the team that has been playing well. Like the Celtics, Denver is slowly shaping with their current personnel. Although chemistry is being developed, they are still that different team when playing on the road. In their 2 road wins (against the Warriors and Rockets), they've managed to build leads only to give it back. I suspect the same thing and hopefully still come up on top. Phoenix isn't getting consistent offensive production from their guys and so it should be the main concern for them here. They should be able to play well with the Nuggets' pace giving up in the last few minutes of the game.
