Boston Celtics at Chicago Bulls Predictions & Tips

Chicago are tipped to cover as a home betting underdog.

The Bulls have a healthy knack for covering against Boston, who were struggling against the spread prior to the All-Star break.

  • Chicago have covered in 8 of the last 10 meetings
  • The Bulls have covered in 9 of their last 13 games
  • Boston have failed to cover in 8 of their last 10 games
  • The Over has cashed in 6 of Chicago’s last 7 games

Head To Head

  • Boston Celtics lead the all-time series 150-114
  • Boston Celtics won 124-97 when the two teams last met on November 28

Boston Celtics Form

Boston return to action looking to pick up from where they left off and extend their win streak to seven games.

The Celtics were red-hot from mid-January onwards and ended the month with back-to-back home wins, beating New Orleans 118-112 and Indiana 129-124.

They failed to make it three-in-a-row as they were beaten 114-105 by the Los Angeles Lakers, but they have not tasted defeat since then.

Boston bounced back at home as they followed up a 131-91 blowout of Memphis with a 125-117 win over Atlanta and a 133-129 victory against Washington.

The Celtics then went out on the road to beat Miami 110-106 and Brooklyn 118-110, before returning home to smash the Nets, 136-86.

Chicago Bulls Form

Chicago went into the All-Star break in inconsistent form, having gone 5-6 in their previous 11 games.

This sequence started on the road as the Bulls were beaten 115-113 in Phoenix and 141-132 at the Los Angeles Lakers.

They wrapped up that road trip with a 104-96 win in Portland, and then bounced back from a 118-107 home defeat to Toronto with a 117-110 win in Charlotte.

Chicago again failed to build on a win as they lost 123-115 to Sacramento, but they did respond by beating Minnesota 129-123 in overtime, before winning 118-110 in Memphis.

The Bulls failed to follow that up though, sandwiching a 136-126 win in Atlanta with a 114-108 overtime defeat at Orlando and a 108-105 loss in Cleveland.

Verdict

Boston are the better team and are expected to win this matchup.

However, the Celtics struggled for covers before the All-Star break and they have had problems covering against Chicago in recent seasons, so give us the Bulls and the points.
