Despite the absence of Jimmy Butler, the Heat are favored by 1.5 points across our best sports betting sites.

Meanwhile, the Bulls enter the game brimming with confidence after a convincing 131-116 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, propelled by the stellar play of Coby White.

Bulls vs. Heat prop bet predictions for Friday

Tyler Herro Over 3.5 made 3-pointers ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Without Butler on the court screaming at every Heat player and willing Miami to victory with his pure intensity, Spoelstra is going to need his Kentucky Wildcats - Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro - to pick up the slack. Tied with Butler as the leading scorer for Miami this season, Herro is in the perfect position to do his best Jack Gohlke impression and flame Chicago from behind the arc.

The Bulls allowed the second-most 3-pointers per game this season (14.6) and the third-most to shooting guards (3.64). Herro is the Heat's go-to sharpshooter, averaging a team-high 3.1 made 3-pointers per game on 39.6% shooting.

Herro's usage from three against Philly (14 attempts) is part of the reason why these -115 odds are somewhat short. The odds imply a 53.49% probability he hits the Over, according to our odds calculator, and if Herro hits four 3-pointers, a $10 bet pays out $18.70.

Best odds: -115 via Betway

Nikola Vucevic Under 32.5 points + rebounds + assists ⭐⭐⭐

While the Heat have one Wildcat to lean on offensively, the other will be key on defense with Adebayo anchoring Miami's frontcourt. Affectionately known as "Bam Bam," Adebayo is going to turn Nikola Vucevic into rubble and leave "Vucci Mane" feeling helpless for four quarters. Behind Adebayo, the Heat are third in the NBA in points allowed (108.4) and fifth in defensive rating (112.2).

They're also giving up the third-fewest offensive rebounds per game (9.2) and the ninth-fewest total rebounds to centers (14.26). With Adebayo holding it down in the paint, centers are putting up just 20.31 points per game against the Heat, the second-fewest in the NBA.

In four games against the Heat this season, Vucevic is averaging just 29.9 combined points, rebounds, and assists. A $10 bet on this prop will bring in a $8.70 profit if Vucevic hits the Under, and there's a 53.49% probability he will. 

Best odds: -115 via Betway

Coby White Over 20.5 points ⭐⭐⭐

A North Carolina guard putting up 42 points for the Bulls in a do-or-die game? Coby White's not Michael Jordan, he just played the Atlanta Hawks.

But he can build on this performance against a Heat team that's down Butler and can be susceptible to explosive guards like Mike ... I mean White. Miami allowed 23.03 points per game to point guards this season and White had a breakout year putting up 19.1 per game.

This line is a little lower than we were expecting coming off his 40-burger against the Hawks, and we love the value we're getting at even-money from Betway. While there's only a 50% probability White hits the Over, a $10 bet pays out $20 if he does score 21-plus. White closed the regular season on a tear, too, averaging 22 points over his last four games. 

Best odds: +100 via Betway
