Chicago Bulls Betting Preview
The Chicago Bulls have yet to win back to back games this season. The Chicago Bulls had a comeback win over the Heat on Saturday. The Chicago Bulls are averaging 107.2 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 110.5 points on 46.3 percent shooting.

The Chicago Bulls are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.9 rebounds per game.
The Miami Heat were in control of Saturday's game until they imploded in the fourth quarter and lost in the final minute. Despite the win, I have no use for the Chicago Bulls, a team that hasn't been able to string together success and has half their roster in trade rumors. Even after the win, Zach LaVine stormed off the court and the drama seems to be building. You get the feeling guys don't want to be in Chicago anymore. I don't want my money on the Bulls. I'll lay the bucket with the Heat.
