NEWSLETTER NBA Basketball Prediction From Jason Sharpe
Take #868 Denver (+2) over Chicago (9 p.m., Friday, Feb. 5)
This is an awful spot here for the Chicago Bulls as they play their 5th game overall of this long extended road trip. Making things even tougher here for the Bulls is not only is this their 4th game played in the last 6 nights but it also comes in the high altitude of Denver. Things look rough these days for this Chicago team as they lost Joakim Noah to a season-ending injury a few weeks ago. They face a Nuggets squad here that’s playing very well of late since the return of their top rookie draft pick guard Emmanuel Mudiay. After missing over 3 weeks of action to an injury, Mudiay has returned and led the Nuggets to a 10-2 record against the point spread record overall. Play Denver here.
