Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls Game 3 Betting Odds

Published on May 10th, 2013 1:28 pm EST

The defending champions will head to Chicago to do battle with the injury-depleted Bulls on Friday night. To the surprise of many, this Eastern Conference series is currently knotted up at 1-1 heading into play on Friday night.

To say that the Chicago Bulls have been decimated by injury would be putting it nicely. The team has been hurt by injuries to its main players, yet still somehow managed to gut out a win over Brooklyn in the first round. The Bulls continued their improbable run in Game 1 of their series against the Heat, beating the defending champions in a gutsy performance.

The Heat, however, regrouped quickly and lay a historical beatdown on the Bulls in Game 2. Will the Heat continue their momentum into Friday night, or will the Bulls give the defending champions another tough game?
