Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics Analysis

The Boston Celtics travel to the United Center for an Eastern Conference clash with the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls fell short 108-107 to the Orlando Magic, dropping their 4th straight game. The Celtics are the leagues hottest team as they beat the New Orleans Pelicans 117-109 for their 9th straight victory.

This is the 3rd of four games in a season series where they split the first two games, both winning on their home court. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:00 PM EST/5:00 PST.

 Celtics Boast Leagues Top Offense

The Boston Celtics improved to 13-3 on the season with a 117-109 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. The Celts have won nine straight games including their last five on the road. With three players down, Boston saw all five of their starters score in the double digits.

Jaylen Brown led the way with a 27 point 10 rebound double-double while Derrick White chipped in with 26 while going 6 for 8 from three-point land. The Celtics will continue to play with the big man Robert Williams III as well as the newly acquired Danilo Gallinari.

The Boston offensive attack is a juggernaut that ranks 2nd in scoring, 3rd in field goal percentage, 3rd in three-point percentage and 2nd in free throw percentage.

Last season, defense was their calling card but this year they rank below average in defensive scoring, ranking 16th with 113 points allowed per game.

Bulls Look For Bounce Back

The Chicago Bulls dropped to 6-10 on the season as they lost a 107-106 heartbreaker against the Orlando Magic as Jalens Suggs hit a game winning three-pointer. Chicago has lost four straight games as well as 6 of their last 7 games.

Demar Derozan had a monster game with 41 points on 16 of 30 from the field while Nikola Vucevic added a 14 point 16 rebound double-double. Chicago will continue to be without the services of Lonzo Ball (knee) and Kostas Antetokounmpo (undisclosed).

Zach Lavine had an off night, going only 1 for 14 from the field and being benched during the 4th quarter. The Bulls rank 11th in defensive scoring with only 111.6 points allowed per game. The Chicago offense could use some improvements as they currently rank 19th with 110.5 points a game.

Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics Prop Prediction

The Boston Celtics come into Chicago heavily favored with a spread of 6 and a total of 230.
Both sides won their head-to-head meeting at home, Boston 123-119 & Chicago 120-102.

Center Nikola Vucevic thrived in both games, scoring 18 & 24 rebounds and 24 points & 12 rebounds while taking advantage of Robert Williams III missing both games. The Celtics currently allow the 6th most points and 11th most rebounds to opposing centers.

Vucevic has a points + rebounds line set at 25.5, he’s had 36 & 42 PR in two games against the Celtics and almost cleared this number on one category alone in each contest. No Williams makes the Celtics thin in the paint and we’ ll take full advantage with Vuc tonight!!

Prediction: Nikola Vucevic Over 25.5 Points + Rebounds -115 Draftkings

That interest in motor sports turned into a desire to make money off the sport through fantasy contests and sports betting. Like most, he took his lumps when he first got started, but now he is one of the most respected NASCAR bettors in the industry. Andy has expanded that sports betting experience to become profitable in a number of other sports, transforming this interest from a side hobby to a major source of income.
