Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls: Game 4 bettingThe Chicago Bulls have given the Miami Heat all they can handle at times this sportsbook season. They will try and do it again with game six on Friday night in Chicago. The Bulls have struggled with consistency throughout this series and injuries have played a role in it, but the focus right now has to be winning one game. Chicago has already proved to the world it is capable of beating the Heat this season, and will need to bring a sense of urgency to game six with its back against the wall for this contest. The United Center will be absolutely rocking for this game, as the Bulls look to do something that few expected they even could,

United Center, Chicago, Illinois
NBA Price Per Head Line: Miami Heat – 1.5


This series isn’t just business for the Heat, it’s personal. Miami had its franchise-record 27-game win streak ended by the Bulls earlier in the season, and after splitting the first two games at home the stage was set for a physical series. However, the Heat will be just fine if they stick to their game and don’t let Chicago’s play to get in their heads, which is of course something that is much easier said than done.

NBA Betting Preview: Miami Heat

Lebron James is the basketball’s biggest star, and he is also one of the biggest stars in the world of sports regardless of the sports betting forum, so it is no surprise when the officials protect him. James needs to stay on his game and not shy down, and if he stays focused and does exactly that the calls will go his way. Dwyane Wade has been very inconsistent in this series, and that has put even more on the shoulders of Lebron and Chris Bosh. Bosh scored 20 points and grabbed 19 rebounds in their game-three win at Chicago while Norris Cole scored 18 off the bench, and if Miami is getting those contributions beyond James and Wade they will be tough to beat.

The Bulls will need to close down on Bosh inside, and not let the officiating get in their heads. Head coach Tom Thibodeau was fined $35K for his comments about understanding the officiating will not go his way, and while he does have a point, he needs to maintain his composure for the sake of his live betting team. Carlos Boozer had a team-high 21 points while both Jimmy Butler and Nate Robinson combined for 17 points in that game-three loss. However, the loss of Luol Deng lingers even more with Derrick Rose still refusing to play, and that will make it even tougher on Chicago in game six.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Facing Miami at full strength would have meant the Bulls having at least a shot in the series, but Rose being a no-show and Deng being hurt has compromised their chances of winning. That becomes even more significant with all of the calls going the way of the Heat, and if Lebron continues to play his game and block out the distractions, this series will end with a Miami win in game six.
