4* Heat/Bulls NBA Over/Under Total Killer

---UNDER 189---

These two teams combined for 202 points in Miami on opening night back in late October, easily going over the total of 188.5. Despite finishing well above the mark, oddsmakers have set tonight's total at just 189. This is a pretty good sign that they feel it's going to be a defensive battle and I would agree. Last time these two teams faced in the United Center, they combined for just 153 points. With Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler sidelined for the Bulls and Miami's Dwyane Wade dealing with some knee soreness, that's a lot of offense missing from the first time these two teams played.

The Bulls come in well rested. They have had a full two days off and this will be just their 4th game in 10 days. When in this spot the Bulls have seen the UNDER cash in 18 of 25 games. The other key here is that these TNT Thursday games have a strong history of going UNDER the total. The UNDER is 5-1-1 in the Heat's last 7 games on Thursday and 34-15-2 in the Bull's lost 51 games on Thursday. BET THE UNDER 189!
