Chicago Bulls vs Miami Heat Betting Pick
This game will take place at 9:00 PM ET in the United Center
Why bet the Miami Heat:
✅ The Miami Heat are a different animal when playing at the top of their game and they have the ability to play with anyone in the NBA. While the stud that is Zach LaVine will keep the Bulls close, he will only be able to do so much with Jimmy Butler draped all over him. If you aren’t aware, Butler is one of the three best on-ball defenders in the league and a menace when actually putting the effort in.
✅ This is a game Zach LaVine will need a lot of help in and I just don’t see it coming. While Lauri Markkanen and Coby White have upside, they don’t outweigh what Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro, and Goran Dragic can do to compliment Butler. The Heat play an all-around solid game and the Bulls rely on a team turning the ball over and beating themselves. I think the Heat make a big second-half run and it starts in this game against the Bulls.
✅ If you’re looking for a lean on the total, I like the under. With both of these teams fresh off the break, defense will be a bit more present than we’re used to. I also expect LaVine to struggle at points against Butler and vice versa, which could result in a scoring drought or two. My strong lean is with the Heat -2.5, but like the under as well in this one.
✅ The Miami Heat are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
✅ The Chicago Bulls are 3-14 ATS in their last 17 Friday games.
The Pick: Heat -2.5

If you’re not sure which team will win the game or by how many points, you can bet the over/under. When betting the over/under, you must decide whether the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat will combine for more or less than a certain amount of points. This number is set by the sportsbooks and will change when action comes in on both sides.
Using the same example as above, let’s say the Heat vs Bulls over/under is set to 217.5. In this scenario, a wager on the over would ask for 218 or more points while a bet on the under would require 2017 or fewer total points scored. This is the second-most popular way to wager on NBA games and the other way to get even odds on both sides of the wager.

This allows you to ignore both the spread and total, which can be enticing to those that don’t want to pay too much attention to things. The moneyline is a simple wager to make, but you must ensure there is proper value when doing so.
Using the same hypothetical as above, we will say the Miami Heat are (-190) favorites. That means you must lay $190 to win $100 if the Heat win. In turn, the Chicago Bulls would likely be around (+170) underdogs. This means you would win $170 back on a $100 winning wager. This is the third-most popular way to wager on NBA games and the way a lot of casuals like to run.
