LeBron James is expected to play in Friday night's game at AmericanAirlines Arena after participating in a shoot around, as the Miami Heat (22-8) prepare to host the Chicago Bulls (17-13).

The opening tip scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Sports bettors will find that the Heat are eight-point home favorites in the NBA betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total stands at 191 in the market.

James averaged 31.8 points per game in four meetings against the Bulls a year ago, but Miami tallied a disappointing 1-3 against-the-spread (ATS) record in those contests.

Let's take a closer look at this Eastern Conference showdown from a betting perspective, while offering a prediction on the total along the way.
