Points allowed per game: Chicago is giving up 91.5 points per outing while the Heat have allowed 96.7 points on average this season.
Thoughts: The Bulls are coming off a win over the New Orleans Hornets while the Heat defeated the Atlanta Hawks last night. With Miami playing last night on the road, I’m surprised they are a three point favorite. The Bulls win a close one tonight so I’d take them with the points as well as the over here.
