The Chicago Bulls travel to the AT&T Center to take on the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night. Here’s a Bulls vs Spurs Prediction.

Chicago Bulls 

The Chicago Bulls have been in decent shape as they will be aiming for a season-high fourth straight victory after taking down the Hornets in a 111-100 win on Wednesday. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 29 points on eight of 20 shooting, Nikola Vucevic added 20 points iwth 12 rebounds and three assists while Coby White chipped in with 19 points, nine rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 42 percent from the field and 12 of 25 from the 3-point line as they outpaced the Hornets from the start, building themselves a 22-point lead before they held off a late rally from the Hornets in the fourth quarter. 

Chicago Bulls Team Facts

  • The home team has won each of the Bulls’ last seven games.
  • The home team has covered the spread in each of the Bulls’ last seven games.
  • Seven of the Bulls’ last eight games at Frost Bank Center have gone OVER the total points line.

San Antonio Spurs 

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs are in terrible form as they are now hoping to put a halt to a 15-game losing streak after getting beaten by the Timberwolves in a 102-94 road loss on Wednesday. Devin Vassell led the team with 22 points on nine of 16 shooting, Keldon Johnson added 21 points with 10 rebounds and three assists while Victor Wembanyama chipped in with 12 points and 10 rebounds. As a team, the Spurs shot just 37 percent from the field and eight of 36 from the 3-point line as they went on a nice run in the second quarter to take the lead into the break, only to get outpaced by 56-41 in the second half. 

San Antonio Spurs Team Facts

  • The Spurs have lost each of their last 15 games.
  • The Spurs have failed to cover the spread in seven of their last eight games against Eastern Conference opponents.
  • Each of the Spurs’ last nine games as home underdogs following a road loss have gone OVER the total points line.

Bulls vs Spurs Prediction

The Bulls are still missing Zach LaVine, but they could have Torrey Craig and Alex Caruso back in the lineup, while the Spurs don’t have anyone on the injury report. This is a classic case of two teams headed in opposite directions as the Bulls are starting to play some of their best basketball of the season so far, while the Spurs are mired in a 15-game slide. The Bulls have a couple players returning for this one and they are clearly the team in better form, so I really like the Bulls at the short line in this spot.
