Warriors vs. Bulls Prediction & Pick

It was a weird last game for both of these teams. The Bulls shot just 16.0% from three-point range (4-of-25) against the Suns and logged only 5 offensive rebounds. On the other side, the Warriors tallied 18 turnovers against the Mavericks and saw no one outside of Curry score more than 14 points.

The edge ultimately goes to the home team. Golden State owns a 9-1 record at the Chase Center this season and averages a reliable 121.7 points per home game (No. 3 in NBA). Chicago is only 4-7 on the road and allows an opponent shooting percentage of 48.5% when away from home (No. 23 in NBA).

Keep in mind the Warriors are also 10-0 straight up in their last 10 games against the Bulls.

Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 125 | Bulls: 114

Warriors vs. Bulls Best Bet

The over is worthy of consideration here, but the best bet is backing the Warriors against the spread. Not only is Golden State 10-0 straight up in its last 10 games against Chicago, but it is 8-2 against the spread (ATS) during that same stretch. The Warriors are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games, too.

The Bulls haven't fared well against Western opponents as of late, covering the spread in just one of their last seven cross conference matchups. Chicago has the talent to keep up with the Warriors on paper. However, that talent is not showing up on the court and that shouldn't change on Friday night.

Bet: Golden State Warriors -7 (-110)
