Two teams looking to bounce back following disappointing losses meet head-to-head on Friday night as the Chicago Bulls go on the road to take on the Golden State Warriors at the Chase Center.
Here are three of the best prop bets for the Bulls-Warriors game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds.
Bulls vs Warriors Player Props
1. Stephen Curry - Made Threes: Over 4.5 (+114)
It's intriguing to see this prop bet at plus odds considering Stephen Curry has nailed at least 5 three-pointers in five of his last seven games. Keep in mind he drained 4 three-pointers in the two games in which the under cashed. It's not like the Bulls have been shutting teams down from beyond the perimeter, either. Chicago allows an opponent three-point shooting percentage of 37.9%, which is the second-worst mark in the NBA. Curry has had a ton of success against the Bulls in his career, averaging more than 23.0 points per game. He has cashed the over on this prop bet in four of his last five games against Chicago and is 29-of-67 (43.3%) from three-point range during that stretch.
2. Nikola Vucevic - Points: Over 15.5 (-115)
If there's one area where the Bulls can exploit Golden State's defense, it is around the rim. The Warriors have allowed an opponent two-point shooting percentage of 57.4% over their last three games and is giving up the seventh-most points to opposing centers on the year (24.0). That bodes well for Nikola Vucevic's chances of balling out in a primetime showdown. The Chicago big man has tallied more than 15 points in three of his last four games and is shooting 47.7% from the floor in 2022. That is his best mark since the 2018 season. Vucevic should have no trouble using his size to bully Kevon Looney in the paint, making this a prop bet with a ton of underrated value.
3. Kevon Looney - Rebounds: Under 6.5 (-102)
Speaking of Kevon Looney, he draws a tough matchup in terms of crashing the boards on Friday night. The Bulls have allowed opponents to post just a 21.4% offensive rebounding percentage in 2022 (No. 5 in NBA), meaning Looney will have to do most of his work on the defensive end of the court. That won't be any easier as Chicago gives up the fourth-fewest rebounds to opposing centers overall (12.4). Looney is logging an average of just 22.6 minutes per game and has tallied more than 6 rebounds in only two of his last five games. With Vucevic around the box Looney out, look for players like Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins to steal enough rebound opportunities for this under to cash.
