The Chicago Bulls and the Golden State Warriors collide at the Chase Center on Friday night.

The Chicago Bulls have been in a bit of a rut as they’ve lost six of their last nine games overall and they will be hoping for a better performance after getting blown out by the Suns in a 132-113 road loss on Wednesday. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 29 points, seven rebounds and four assists, Zach LaVine added 21 points with seven assists while Nikola Vucevic chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the Bulls shot 50 percent from the field and a miserly four of 25 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense early on and were always fighting an uphill battle after falling scoring just 18 points in the second quarter. Patrick Williams had a night to forget as he finished with just two points on zero of eight shooting.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have been in great shape as they’ve won eight of their last 12 games overall, but they will be looking to bounce back in this one after having their three-game win streak halted by the Mavericks in a 116-113 road loss on Tuesday. Stephen Curry led the team with 32 points and five assists, Jonathan Kuminga added 14 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks off the bench while Draymond Green chipped in with 12 points, six rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Warriors shot 47 percent from the field and just 11 of 43 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to rally all the way back from an early 17-point deficit, only to see the Mavericks steal the game with a pivotal 8-3 run in the final 1:23 of the fourth quarter.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a loss of more than 10 points and 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine Friday games. The Warriors are 45-22-2 ATS in their last 69 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record.

Head to head, the under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Golden State, the Bulls are 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings overall and the Bulls are 5-17 ATS in the last 22 meetings in Golden State.

The Bulls are coming into this one in poor form and low on confidence after getting blown out by the Suns in their last outing, while the Warriors were on a nice run before falling just short to the Mavericks in a close one on Tuesday. The Warriors are clearly the team in better form and they have the advantage of extra rest as they haven’t played since Tuesday. The Bulls are only 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings overall, so I’ll back the Warriors at home.
