The NBA season is in full swing, and there are plenty of betting opportunities. ESPN has a double-header Friday with the Chicago Bulls visiting the Philadelphia 76ers in the opener and the LA Clippers hosting the Utah Jazz in the nightcap. Our analysts -- Doug Kezirian, Joe Fortenbaugh and Andre Snellings -- are here to give their best bets from Friday's lineup of games.

Friday's games

Phoenix Suns (-2.5, 230.5) at New Orleans Pelicans

Fortenbaugh: This is a massive bounce-back spot for a Suns team that turned a 21-point halftime lead against the Nets on Tuesday night into a four-point defeat, despite the fact that Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving didn't play for Brooklyn.
