Bulls vs Heat Game 5 Odds

Published on May 15th, 2013 1:33 pm EST

The Miami Heat will look to close out the injury-depleted Chicago Bulls in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference series later tonight in Miami.

After dropping Game 1, the Miami Heat have come storming back to take the next three games in a row. Game 2 was a particularly lopsided affair, and the Bulls haven't been able to recover from the drubbing.

Chicago has tried to throw the Heat off with their physicality, but the Bulls' sheer lack of manpower (they are dealing with multiple injuries) has seen them drop three straight against the defending champions.

As you can imagine, the Heat are big favorites to close out the series in Miami tonight. Let's take a look at the current betting odds for this game:

Chicago Bulls, +14, -105
Miami Heat, -14, -115

So, if you wanted to take the Bulls plus the 14 points, a successful $105 wager would yield a total profit of $100.

The over/under for this game is currently set at 181 points:

Over 181 points, -115
Under 181 points, -105

The moneyline for this game (straight up odds) hasn't been released as of yet.

The Bulls managed to shock the Heat (and the rest of the basketball world) by winning Game 1 of this series. Can they do it again against the defending NBA champions, or will the Heat close things out tonight?

The winner of this series will move on to face the winner of Indiana/New York in the Eastern Conference finals.
