Game Totals Prediction

Analysts of bookmakers consider Miami to be the undisputed favorite of the upcoming match. However, one can argue with them. The Bulls have beaten the Heat in the current season of the regular season in all three games. And each time with a fairly decent difference in the score. And this time the game will have to follow a similar scenario. Chicago is doing a great job as an underdog. 

Our prediction is Chicago win at 2.70 in Mostbet.

Miami has an average of 111 points in home games, while Chicago has 112 away. Head-to-head confrontations between teams, as a rule, are not very productive. Only in one match of the current season out of three, the mark of 225 points was overcome. And this time at stake is a ticket to the main draw of the playoffs. Therefore, the game will also turn out to be viscous with an emphasis on defense and not very productive.

Our prediction - total under 211.5 points including overtime for 1.71.
