Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls Game 2 Betting Odds

Published on May 8th, 2013 3:07 pm EST
The Chicago Bulls shocked many when they upset the Miami Heat in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Semi-Final series.

The Chicago Bulls, fresh off of an emotional series against the Brooklyn Nets, were decimated by injuries heading into Game 1 earlier this week. The Heat, on the other hand, were laying in wait, having rested up following an impressive sweep of the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bulls put together a phenomenally gutsy performance in Game 1, eventually eking out a victory in Miami. This series, which was thought to be an easy four or five game win for the Heat, is suddenly very interesting.

Will Game 2 be another close affair, or will the Heat put things together and blow out the Bulls? Let's take a look at the current odds for this one:

Chicago Bulls, +12 1/2
Miami Heat, -12 1/2

The Bulls, at least in the eyes of the oddsmakers, aren't getting any respect, even after their Game 1 victory.

The money line, which is the odds for each time to win the game straight up, currently looks like this:

Chicago Bulls, +900
Miami Heat, -1500

These numbers mean that a successful $100 wager on the Heat would yield a total profit of $900, while you would need to bet $1,500 on the Heat in order to win $100 back.

Finally, the over/under line is currently set at 187 points:

Over 187 Points, -110
Under 187 Points, -110


Will LeBron James and company right the ship and blow out the depleted Bulls in Game 2, or will the scrappy Bulls give the defending World Champions another tough run?
