Bulls Heat Game 3 Line

The Bulls Heat Game 3 line was coming in at Miami -4.5 with this series tied at 1-1. 

Some interesting things to consider before placing a bet on this game include:

As an underdog, Chicago is 12-4 Against The Spread.

Off an upset loss as a favorite, the Bulls are 13-3 ATS.

The OVER/UNDER is 179 in this game and the OVER is just 4-12 this entire season when the Bulls were underdogs. 

The Heat will come into this game a bit banged up. 

Dwyane Wade suffered a nasty gash on his right arm that pretty much prevented him from shooting the ball in the final minutes while Omer Asik ended up with a stitched chin.  Nearly all the Heat players were observed limping into the locker room.

"Fortunately, we were able to have some days to recuperate," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Our guys, they're not shying away from it. Neither team is. Both teams have built these habits for the entire season. We've proven we're an aggressive, attacking, physical defense that rebounds the basketball. ... They've proven to be the same. So you have two things colliding into each other."

Here is another factoid to consider when placing a bet on the final outcome of the Bulls Heat series:  Since 2006, the winner of Game 3 of the East title series has advanced to the NBA finals every time.  That’s five years straight. 

"This is going to be a crazy game, where I think they're going to have a lot of confidence," said the Bulls Derrick Rose. "Some way, somehow, we've just got to come up with this win no matter how we get it. We've just got to have more intensity than them and play way more aggressive."
