The Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-14 ATS in their last 16 Friday games. The Nuggets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Bulls last 4 overall. The over is 26-12-2 in Nuggets last 40 home games. The Bulls are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Denver and 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

The Chicago Bulls have provided value in the underdog role this season and play some of their best ball on the road, but I'm not sure I trust them against some of the better teams in the league with reasonable lines. The Denver Nuggets are winning their last five games by an average of 7.6 points while shooting 49.3 percent from the field. The Bulls are 12-4 against the spread on the road, but I need another bucket or two to consider them here. I'll lay the chalk with the Nuggets.
