ODDS: Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have installed the Heat as 12.5-point favorites over the Bulls, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 186.5 points.

LINE MOVEMENT: The Heat opened as 12.5-point favorites and that's where the line currently sits at most online sports books, although some books currently list Miami at -13. As for the total, it opened at 187.5 and has been bet down to 187 or 186.5, depending on the book.

PUBLIC BETTING: Of the current wagers placed on tonight’s game, 59% of NBA public bettors currently favor the Bulls. This information is subject to change, however, so make sure you click on the link provided to get the most updated public betting numbers.

NBA FREE PICK: Take Miami. According to latest NBA trends, Bulls are 3-7 ATS last 10 Wednesday games, 1-6 ATS last 7 following an ATS win and 2-8 ATS last 10 following a SU win. Heat are 6-0 ATS last 6 following a SU loss, 10-3 ATS last 13 overall, 6-2 ATS last 8 vs. Central Division and 5-0 ATS last 5 following an ATS loss.

The Chicago Bulls (50-40 SU, 40-50 ATS, 42-47-1 O/U) lead Miami (70-17 SU, 49-38 ATS, 42-42-3 O/U) 1-0 in this series. The Heat showed a lot of rust in the opening game of the series, falling by seven. They were dominated by 5-foot-9 guard Nate Robinson, who scored 27 points. The Heat also shot just 39 percent from the field, which was partly due to being over for over a week after sweeping the Bucks in four games. Robinson will likely see LeBron James, one of the games' best defenders on him this time. James scored 24 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out seven assists in Game 1, but had little help. The only other scorer in double figures was Dwayne Wade with 14 points. Expect James to become more assertive offensively as the Bulls will once again be without Luol Deng, their best defensive player, along with guard Kirk Hinrich. The Bulls have showed a lot of heart but at some point they have to tire. They are going to play their fourth game in the last six days. This game isn't meaningless for them, but to go back to Chicago at 1-1 is not the worst thing in the world. Expect Miami to come back to life in Game 2 and get their swag back with a blowout win. The Bulls visit American Airlines Arena in Miami to take on the Heat at 7pmET on Wednesday night.
