It has been a rough year for both the Magic and the Bulls, but someone will have to pick up the W when these two teams meet this Friday evening in what may end up being an interesting game from a betting perspective.
The Bulls have only won one of their last 5 games and lead only the Detroit Pistons in the Central Division, so this team is not exactly riding high at the moment. To take some pros away from the season thus far the biggest one would have to be the play of Zach Lavine who is averaging 26.5 points per game and is absolutely playing at an All-Star level.
Lauri Markanen also looks to have taken a step forward this year in his development, as his contributions have been large averaging almost 20 points per game and contributing with rebounds and assists as well. As for injuries Wendell Carter will be out and the status of Otto Porter Jr. is still up in the air, as he remains day to day with a back issue.
The Orlando Magic had their last game essentially taken out of their hands as Fred van Vleet of the Raptors went nuclear for 54 points, which essentially ended the game giving the Magic no chance of competing. Orlando ranks 28th in offense as well, so it is not like they have firepower of their own in order to compete with such a hot shooting performance.
That marked the 4th straight loss for this club, and although that is bad and they need to stop the bleeding sooner rather than later, they do remain in playoff contention, as they are only two points back of Atlanta in the Southeast Division.
Vucevic remains a solid source of production on the interior and he is playing well, but injuries certainly have not helped this team and it really seems like any momentum that this team had coming into this season was taken away from them when Markelle Fultz went down.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
Neither one of these teams is all that proficient on offense, and I can see this game being slow enough in terms of pace to get under this number. It is also a better way to go in this game as opposed to picking a side, as both of these teams are very unreliable and you really do not know what your going to get from night to night.
