Matthew Jordan -
We liked the Chicago Bulls to cover on last Sunday's NBA
picks when they hosted a 1 p.m. ABC nationally televised game, and Chicago
easily did so against the New York Knicks. The competition is a bit steeper
this Sunday when the Miami Heat visit. The next time the teams see each other
could well be in the Eastern Conference semifinals for the second straight
season. Miami opened as a 3.5-point favorite for Sunday's game on NBA odds with
a total of 188.5 for sports bettors.
