Chicago Bulls vs Oklahoma City Thunder betting tips and predictions for Friday’s NBA game at United Center. Chicago hopes to avoid losing a 3rd game in a row as they welcome the Thunder to town for what will be their 2nd and final meeting this season. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Chicago Bulls

Chicago BullsFollowing a pretty strong stretch of 8 wins in 11 games, the Bulls have now dropped 2 in a row on the road at Boston and Washington. The loss against the Wizards in particular hurt a lot as the game was pretty much tied with 5.7 seconds to go, but then Kyle Kuzma drained a game winning three for the home team. Chicago lost the 3rd quarter by 20 points, those type of collapses are going to get punished in the NBA these days.

Zach Lavine finished with 38 points, doing his best to lead the charge without DeMar DeRozan in the line-up. DeRozan is expected to miss another game as he recovers from his quad injury, so the Bulls offense will depend on LaVine once again, who is bothered by a minor hand injury. Luckily for the Bulls they are playing at home, where they’ve covered the spread 4 times in the last 5 games. Against Northwest Division teams they are 9-4 SU in 13 games played.


Oklahoma City Thunder

Oklahoma City ThunderThe young and inexperienced Thunder will be entering tonight’s game with a lot of momentum following last night’s surprising win at Philadelphia. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had another big game with 37 points and 8 rebounds, he was the main reason why they beat the Sixers by 19 on the road despite entering the game as 10.5 point underdogs. Tonight in

Chicago they are 6-point underdogs, despite winning the 1st meeting of the season at home in overtime. The one disadvantage the Thunder might have in this game is the fact that Billy Donovan is coaching the Bulls, he went there in 2020 after coaching OKC for 5 years. The Thunder are on a 4-2 SU run over their last 6 games, but on the road it’s been a different story with just 1 win in 7 games.

Call me crazy, but I think the Thunder aren’t without a chance here. They played a almost perfect game right from the get-go last night and celebrated an unlikely win over Philadelphia. I can see them keeping this game close, so I’m backing them plus the extra points.

Chicago Bulls vs Oklahoma City Thunder Predictions & Odds

A drop off in point production is to be expected from the Bulls who continue life without their leading scorer DeMar DeRozan. He averages 26.1 points per game this year, losing that kind of a player would have a negative impact on any roster in the NBA. They’ve put up just 100 and 107 points in their last 2 games, the game against Oklahoma City earlier in the year saw just 220 points in regulation.

The two teams are averaging 220.3 points per game this season, which is almost 8 points below the projected total set by the oddsmakers. At the United Center, Chicago is just 8-12 on the O/U this season, while the last 9 of 12 meetings between these teams in that building have all cashed on the under. Look for the Bulls to slow down the tempo significantly here, back the under.
