The Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder meet Friday in NBA preseason action at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Bulls are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. The Thunder are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Oklahoma City and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Chicago Bulls are one of those young teams that has playing time open, and they're taking the preseason serious, especially on the defensive side where they're allowing just 38.9 percent shooting from the field. The Oklahoma City Thunder just got smoked by the Bulls their last time out, and that includes shooting just 38.1 percent from the field. I'll lay the bucket with the Bulls with the way they're playing.
