Money Line: -125.00 Miami (Home)
Result: Win
Bulls @ Heat 7:00 PM ET
Game# 559-560
Play On: Heat -125 (ML)

There will be much ado about Miami star Jimmy Butler being out of the lineup tonight and rightfully so. However, the Heat are a respectable 13-9 SU this season when playing without Butler and that includes 12-6 during their previous 18 games in that role. Miami is coming off a 105-104 loss at Philadelphia in Tuesday’s Play-In Tournament Game. Nevertheless, Miami is 7-0 SU&ATS in their last 7 following a loss in their previous contest with a substantial average victory margin of 22.3 points per game.

Chicago is coming off a home blowout win on Tuesday over a hapless Atlanta team which finished their season with 7 consecutive losses. Chicago is a dismal 13-26 SU this season immediately following a win in their previous game. Additionally, the Bulls are 0-3 SU&ATS in their last 3 on the road following a home win and lost by an average of 14.0 points per game. Give me the Heat on the money line.
