The Heat are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The Bulls are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Heat last 4 overall. The under is 17-7 in Bulls last 24 overall. The Heat are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Chicago.

The Miami Heat are coming off one of their better weeks of the season, and they have a massive rest advantage with the Bulls on the end of a back to back. The Heat need to keep winning in hopes of getting out of the play-in games. The Chicago Bulls are the kings of inconsistency, and I doubt things improve for them for their second game in as many days. I'll lay the bucket with the rested Heat on the road.
