Chicago Bulls - NBA Betting Analysis

After taking down the Raptors by a score of 109-105, the Bulls are riding a two-game win streak. Zach LaVine led the way in scoring with 39 points. Chicago was the 6.0-point underdog heading into the game, giving them an ATS win.

With the win, the team has moved to 40-42, placing them 9th in the Eastern Conference. So far this season, they have gone 22-19 at home and 18-23 on the road. The Bulls have a three-game win streak against the spread and have an overall ATS mark of 43-40.

Not only has the Bulls' offense struggled to score the ball all season, ranking 25th at 113.1 points per game. But they have been even worse of late, averaging just 104 points per contest over their last five games. A key to the Bulls' offensive struggles is their inability to consistently knock down three-pointers. So far, Chicago is 36th in three-point attempts and 17th in percentage at 36.1%. The team's scoring numbers are also hampered by a below-average pace of play. For the season, the Bulls are just 98.9 in possessions per game.

This season, the Bulls have allowed an average of 112.0 points per game, good for 7th in the league. In terms of three-point shooting, opponents have knocked down 36.4% of their looks from beyond the arc (12th) and 47.5% of their overall field goal attempts. Chicago's overall defensive numbers have been good despite the unit's struggles on the glass, sitting just 23rd in defensive rebounds per game. The Bulls are also a below-average group in forced turnovers, at just 12.7 per game.

 

Miami Heat - NBA Betting Analysis

In Miami's most recent game, Kyle Lowry led the team in scoring with 33 points, but the Heat fell to the Hawks by a score of 116-105 to the Hawks. Going into the game, Miami was a 5.0-point favorite, adding an ATS loss to their resume.

Now, the Heat's overall record sits at 44-38, placing them 8th in the Eastern Conference. The team's current record at home is 27-14 and 17-24 on the road. Miami's record against the spread is below .500 at 31-50.

Despite being ranked 33rd in the NBA with an average of 109.5 points per game, the Heat have improved their performance lately. In their last five games, they have scored an average of 116 points per contest. Some key reasons behind the Heat's offensive struggles are their poor shooting numbers from outside. Currently, they rank 13th in attempts and 29th in percentage at 34.4%. The team's slow pace of play is also impacting their scoring numbers, as they are 96.2 in possessions per game. On average, Miami gets to the line 23.0 times per game (24th) and has hit 83.1% of these attempts.

This season, Miami has put together a strong defensive unit, allowing just 112.0 points per game (7th). But despite their strong overall numbers, they have been vulnerable on the glass, sitting just 23rd in defensive rebounds per game. Yet, the Heat have been excellent at forcing turnovers, averaging 12.8 per game, placing them 2nd in the NBA. For the season, they have allowed teams to hit 36.4% of their three-point shots and 47.5% of their overall shots from the field.

 

Today's NBA Betting Pick - Bulls vs. Heat

Today's matchup will be the 3rd game of the season between the Bulls and the Heat. So far, the Bulls have the leg up in the series 3-0. The last time the teams met up, the Bulls won by a score of 116-108 as the 7.5-point underdogs (116-108). Together the teams combined to score 224 points which were more than the over/under line of 216.0.

In the Bulls' previous five games as the favorite, they have a straight-up record of 2-3 while going 2-3 against the spread. Across their last three road games, they are 2-1 ATS and 2-1 straight up. Their previous ten games have an over/under mark of 6-3-1 with an average of 216 points per contest.

Across Miami's last five games at home, they have an ATS mark of 1-4 while going 2-3 straight-up. As the favorite, the Heat are 1-2 straight up on an average scoring differential of 8 points per game. This has led to an ATS mark of 1-2. Their previous ten games have ended in an average of 219 points per game and an over/under mark of 7-3.

Recommended ATS Betting Pick: MIA -5.5

Recommended OU Betting Pick: Under 208.5
