Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics Odds & Picks: Bulls to Cover Large Spread

Betsperts analyst Jennifer Eakins gives her best bets for the Bulls vs. Celtics matchup on November 4th, 2022.

This will be the second time these two teams meet this season with the first one ending in an 18-point rout by the Chicago Bulls. It’s been a pretty decent start to the year for both franchises as the Boston Celtics and Bulls sit just one game over .500. Defense is the strength for Chicago as they’ve held opponents to just 109 points per contest which ranks sixth in the NBA, while Boston hasn’t quite lived up to expectations at the start of the season, but are still playing good offensive ball, posting an impressive 116 points per game (7th among NBA teams). This matchup takes place on Friday, November 4th with tipoff at 7:30 PM EST in Boston at TD Garden.

Bulls vs. Celtics Best Bets


Bulls +7.5 vs. Celtics (-110 DraftKings)

The Celtics just aren’t playing defense like we saw last year and they could open the door for the Bulls to come in and cover this. Boston should still win this one, but 7.5 points seems a tad high based on what we’ve seen from both teams this season. Give me points for Chicago here.

Risk:1.10 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Bet up to -120)

The Celtics are currently averaging 116.1 points per game and their implied team total is 3.3 points higher in this matchup than their average on the season. This contest should go over with a shootout possible.
