Why should you bet on the Bulls?

The Heat had not lost a game since adding Joe Johnson to their roster via free agency, but he only added 11 points against the Bucks. The Heat were up three in the fourth period, but then the Bucks went on a run and held on to win the game. Hassan Whiteside was not his usual dominant self on the inside, and if the Heat are starting to fall back into their old ways, the Bulls could take advantage.

Why should you put your money on Miami?

The Bulls are already limping after losing Jimmy Butler to knee swelling, and Aaron Brooks and Bobby Portis also had to leave their win over the Bucks. After heading to San Antonio to play on Thursday night, the Bulls will be exhausted when they return home to face a relatively rested Heat team the next night. Pau Gasol is a worthy opponent for Hassan Whiteside, but if some of these players aren’t back, the Bulls will not be able to give the Heat much in the way of intense effort.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I like the Heat to leave Chicago with a win. I’m picking the Heat to prevail, 104-96.
