The Bulls are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Celtics are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in Bulls last 5 Saturday games. The under is 6-2 in Celtics last 8 home games. The Bulls are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Boston and 5-12 ATS in the last 17 meetings.

Both teams on the end of a back to back, I can understand why the Celtics are favored at home. With that said, the Celtics aren't a team I'm thrilled to back in the favorite role against respectable teams, as they're way too hit or miss with me. The Chicago Bulls are having a shaky week, but they're still head and shoulders the better and more trustworthy team here. The fact we're getting the Bulls in a rare underdog role, you almost have no choice but to take it.
