The Orlando Magic are favorites in Vegas NBA odds and picks vs the Chicago Bulls on Friday.

The 2nd place (Southeast) Orlando Magic (30-16) will look to win their second straight road trip tonight in Vegas NBA odds when they travel to take on the 1st place (Central) Chicago Bulls (31-14) on Friday evening at 8:00pm EST when they battle at the United Center for the game that can be seen on Sun Sports and Comcast Sports Chicago. The Celtics vs Suns will also tip-off on Friday at 10:30pm EST from the US Airways Center and can be seen live on ESPN. Online sportsbooks have opened with the Magic -1.5 road favorites in NBA picks vs the Bulls with an over/under total of 187.

Sportsbooks also favor Orlando -125 in money line Vegas NBA odds vs Chicago +105 for Friday night’s game on Sun Sports. The Magic had won three straight games before falling at home to the Detroit Pistons (96-103) on Monday. The Magic were able to regroup though and take a road win vs the Indiana Pacers (96-111) on Wednesday night shooting 16-34 from behind the three-point line. Orlando easily covered the 5.5-point spread as favorites in NBA picks to go 26-18-1 ATS for the season and with another win tonight vs the Bulls, the Magic could win their third straight game on the road which would tie their season best.

Chicago will be going for their fourth straight win on Friday night from the United Center after three days off and are hoping that All-Star Derrick Rose has fully recovered from stomach ulcers and a sore back. While the Bulls have won three straight home games in Vegas NBA odds vs the Mavericks (82-77), the Cavaliers (92-79) and the Bucks (92-83); Rose has been shooting only 34% from the field as he tries to regain his energy. Rose was also named as a starter in the 2011 All-Star game on Thursday; the first Bulls player to do so since Michael Jordan in 1998. Despite the low performance from Rose, the Chicago supporting cast has picked up the slack to go 26-18-1 ATS for the season in including Monday’s 9-point win over Milwaukee as 7-point favorites.
