How to Bet Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls Pro Hoops OddsMiami at Chicago Game Information and Opening Spread When: 8:00 PM ET, Friday, March 11, 2016 Where: United Center, Chicago, Illinois TV: WGN, NBA, SUN Opening Odds: TBA Live Stream: CSN Chicago
Why Bet the Miami HeatThe Heat (37-27 SU, 34-29 ATS) might have had their five-game winning streak snapped in their 114-108 road loss against Milwaukee on Wednesday, but Miami is playing much better basketball since acquiring veteran sniper Joe Johnson almost two weeks ago.
Why Bet the Chicago BullsFollowing a four-game SU and ATS losing streak, the Bulls (32-30 SU, 25-37 ATS) have won two straight by beating Houston and Milwaukee in their last two games including their 100-90 win over the Bucks as a 5.5-point home favorite on Monday.
While Pau Gasol had a fantastic game with 12 points, 17 rebounds and 13 assists to become just the fourth player in NBA history 35 years old or older to log multiple triple-doubles in a season, the Bulls will likely be without their best player in all-star shooting guard Jimmy Butler as he deals with swelling in his left knee that caused him to recently miss 11 games. “We will know more (Tuesday),” Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said. “The doctor said structurally he was OK.” The good news for Chicago is that they’ve gone 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five home games versus a team with a winning road record.
