Bulls vs Heat Over/Under Pick: Under 205½

We would love to see a classic Eastern Conference defensive battle, and it has all the makings for it.

Our NBA picks opened at 209½ and dropped four points, due to the possibility that Heat star Jimmy Butler doesn’t play after suffering a knee injury in Wednesday’s loss to Philadelphia.

The Bulls might have scored 131 points when beating the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, but the Heat defense is much better.

That should see the under cash, and desperate teams don’t often fire on offense.



Bulls vs Heat ATS Pick: Heat -1½

We are happy to lock in Heat -1½ regardless of Butler’s availability.

The Heat are one of the best teams in the crunch, and they showed that when making the NBA Finals last season.

Sport betting markets are giving them plenty of respect in opening them as favorites, despite losing a heartbreaker to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 105-104 loss was gutting, and it could come at a cost with Butler’s injury. However, Tyler Herro could step up and have his best moment of 2024.



Bulls vs Heat Player Prop Pick: Tyler Herro Over 22½ Points (-182)

Our NBA player prop pick is Tyler Herro over 22½ points, as he might need to step up big time on Friday night.

It has been a solid season for the 24-year-old, who cops a fair amount of criticism. However, with an average of 20.8 points per game, he’s doing his job on a team that plays team ball.

If we wanted to, he could have a much higher average, and we’re happy to include him in our picks.
