The Boston Celtics invade the United Center to do battle with the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.
The Boston Celtics have been in red-hot form as they’ve won 13 of their last 16 games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after routing the Wizards in a 144-102 win on Sunday. Jaylen Brown led the team with 32 points, seven rebounds and five assists, Jayson Tatum added 22 points with seven assists while Derrick White chipped in with 17 points off the bench. As a team, the Celtics shot a sizzling 61 percent from the field and 23 of 44 from the 3-point line as they dominated right from the start, jumping out to an early double-digit lead, before they exploded for 74 points in the second half to make it a complete blowout.
Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been in a rut as they’ve lost five of their last eight games and they will be hoping to stop a two-game skid after getting thrashed by the Bucks in a 127-106 loss last night. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 40 points and six assists on 16 of 26 shooting, Patrick Williams added 18 points on seven of nine shooting while Coby White chipped in with 13 points off the bench. As a team, the Bulls shot just 42 percent from the field and nine of 33 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense and they were always fighting an uphill battle after managing just 20 points in the first quarter to trail by double-digits going into halftime. Nikola Vucevic had a forgettable night as he scored just seven points on three of 19 shooting, while Alex Caruso finished scoreless on zero of six shooting.
Looking at the betting trends, the Celtics are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games, 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Bulls are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record, 12-5 ATS in their last 17 home games and 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games overall.
Head to head, the under is 11-2 in the last 13 meetings in Chicago, the Celtics are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings overall and the Celtics are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Chicago.
The Celtics have listed Brown and Tatum as probable for the Celtics, while the Bulls have listed Matt Thomas as questionable and Zach LaVine as day to day. The Celtics are coming into this game with plenty of momentum and their confidence will be sky-high after destroying the Wizards by 42 points on Sunday. The Bulls are banged up, they’ve been below their best and they just got routed by the Bucks last night. The Celtics are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Chicago and I think that trend continues here as the Celtics get the win and cover.
