Duncan Robinson paced Miami with 29 points on 9-of-15 shooting, all from 3-point range, plus 2-of-2 at the free throw line. He also brought down two rebounds.

NBA Betting Trends

Miami

The Heat are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. Miami is 4-0 ATS in its last four games versus the Central Division.

Chicago

The Bulls are 6-1 ATS in their last seven Friday games. Chicago is 8-21 ATS in its last 29 home games. 

Prediction:

As good as Miami has been, it is a little vulnerable on the road as evidenced by its 4-3 straight up road record compared to being unbeaten at home. The Bulls are coming in with confidence after dominating the Pistons and I like for that to carry over here. Chicago has a lot of its pieces in place and it's just a matter of growth with each game. The Bulls have been competitive in most games lately, especially at home, and I'm going to take a shot on them here.
