Bet on the Bulls over the Suns on Friday.

The Chicago Bulls will travel west to Phoenix to take on the Sun’s Friday Night and the Spooky Express has a play in this game. Tip off for this game is at 10:30 PM ET and is on ESPN.

The Bulls have won 11 of the past 15 games against the Suns. The road team in this series has won 13 of the past 16 games. Both of these are coming off 1 days rest.

Bulls Need To Get Healthy Heading To Playoffs

The Bulls are one game under .500 at 26-27 both SU and ATS. They are sitting in 7th spot in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. This will be the Bulls 6th road game in a row and 3rd in 5 days.

Chicago Bulls SF Jimmy Butler is expected to miss this game with a bruised heel so make sure you check his status prior to playing this game. Dwayne Wade missed Wednesday’s game with an upper respiratory infection but is expected to return on Friday night.

Suns Defense Need Help!

The Phoenix Suns currently have the worst record in the Western Conference and second worst in the NBA. They are in last place in the Western Conference and no hope of making the playoffs. They have lost 8 of the past 9 games SU and 6 of 9 ATS. They are 0-4 ATS on their home court in their last 4 overall at Talking Stick Resort Arena. Phoenix is allowing their opponents to score over 112 points per game, which is 29th in the NBA.

The Suns took a hit on Wednesday when it was announced that Dragan Bender would miss 4-6 weeks after having surgery on his ankle. The Suns will now turn to fellow rookie Marquese Chriss to pick up extra minutes until Bender returns.

Bulls Win With Or Without Butler And Wade

The Bulls have won 7 straight ATS vs. The Suns and this game should continue the trend. The Bulls can score with the best teams in the NBA so scoring 115 against Phoenix should be a piece of cake. That being said, be sure to check the status on both Jimmy Butler and Dwayne Wade. If both of these guys are in the lineup, this play will be a 3 Unit Play on Chicago Bulls. If one or both of these guys are missing from the lineup, we will downgrade this play to a 1 Unit Play on Chicago Bulls.
