MIA -7 Total 212
The Chicago Bulls travel to Miami, Florida to take on the Miami Heat on Sunday at the American Airlines Arena. The Bulls are coming off of a loss to the extremely depleted Golden State Warriors. Before the loss to the Warriors, the Bulls were actually on a two-game winning streak, but we're on a losing streak prior to that. Inconsistency has killed Chicago this year.
The Bulls are only 8-15 on the season, and have not played great basketball. However, not much was expected from Chicago this season, as they are still a team in rebuilding, and finding what exactly is their best lineup at the moment. A good young team with Zach LaVine, Coby white, window Carter Junior, etc, but any extremely inconsistent team.
The Miami Heat are coming off of a 112 - 103 win over the Washington Wizards. The Heat have won four of their last five games. The Miami Heat have been a huge surprise this season, With the signing of Jimmy Butler, many people thought that he might be a low seed in the playoffs. However, the Heat have exceeded expectations and is one of the best teams in basketball right now. The Miami Heat are 12-6 on the season and have a five game lead on the number one spot in the Southwest Division. This game may be a little bit more important, for Jimmy Butler, as he spent most of his NBA career in Chicago.
Chicago is 10-13 ATS this season.
Under is 5-1 in Bulls last six games following an ATS loss
Miami is 14-7 ATS this season
Under is 9-3-1 in Heat last 13 games following a straight up win
This game is a little trickier than what many people might think. Obviously the Chicago Bulls are one of the worst teams in all of the NBA, and the Miami Heat are one of the best teams in the NBA, this should be simple. However the Miami Heat have a laundry list of injuries right now, and that might help the Bulls. I still think the Heat has an overall advantage that will make them come out victorious. Final score prediction, Miami Heat win 115-99
