The Miami Heat are playing high level ball with 3 straight wins, and now they have the rest advantage in this spot. As Ive said time and time again, the Bulls aren't a team I'm excited to back. The Bulls are losing and there are rumors of trades heating up. The Bulls are going nowhere fast, and players can't be all that motivated to take the court on a nightly basis. You can argue this line should be steeper than it is. Give me the Heat for an eighth straight victory.
