Bulls-Heat Line

The Bulls-Heat line was expected to open at Chicago -1.5 at Bookmaker.com during the early morning hours Friday. Note that the Game 2 line for the Eastern Conference Finals is also Bulls -1.5.  Check out Bookmaker.com here for the latest line on this game.  The following article pertains to Game 1.

Chicago destroyed Atlanta Thursday night by a score of 93-73 resulting in the Hawks elimination. 

Carlos Boozer scored 23 points and Derrick Rose had 12 assists, helping to seal the victory.  Chicago advanced to its first conference final since 1998.

The most impressive number: Chicago had assists on all but seven of its 31 baskets. Or, come to think of it, maybe it was this stat: The Hawks shot just 37 percent (27 of 74) and rarely got an open look.

"If anything, our defense won this game," Rose said.

Boozer, at one point, went 10-of-16 from the field, grabbed 10 rebounds and handed out five assists.

"Booze had everything going," Rose said.

The Bulls-Heat series begins on Sunday.

As ACC play enters the midway point in the schedule, the legitimate contenders have started to take shape in an otherwise crowded field of mediocrity in conference play. Florida State has been one of the ACC’s best groups so far this season, while Virginia hasn’t quite lived up to the early season hype. After playing a back-and-forth nail-biter in Tallahassee just two weeks ago, Florida State is again looking to emerge victorious while the Cavaliers are looking to enact some revenge from a close conference defeat.

College Basketball Betting – Kansas Jayhawks at Oklahoma State Cowboys

On paper this looks like it should be rout. The Kansas Jayhawks have won four in a row and seven of their last eight with the only setback to No. 1 Baylor. They are 16-3 overall on the season. The Oklahoma State Cowboys sit at the bottom of the Big 12 standings but got a boost by snapping a six-game losing streak with a win over Texas AM on Saturday in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. It doesn’t count on their conference ledger, but the Pokes should be a more confident group when KU visits on Monday night.
