OVER Bettors Loving Bulls-Celtics Tilts

Boston Celtics Isaiah Thomas

In the last meeting between the Boston Celtics and the Chicago Bulls on December 9th, the Celts handed the Bulls their third straight loss, which led many people to question if Chicago had what it takes to make a run in the playoffs. All Chicago did was go 10-4 since then while collecting five wins in a row heading into tonight’s rematch at the United Center.

Shark Bites
  • The Celtics are 6-18 SU in their last 24 games on the road in January.
  • The Bulls are 3-0 ATS in their last three games.
  • The Celtics are 2-6 O/U in their last eight games on the road in January.

The C’s, meanwhile, are just 6-7 since the last encounter with their Eastern Conference foes. Boston is coming off a 99-94 setback at the hands of the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday, but the good news for Celtics backers is the team has fared surprisingly well on the second game of back-to-backs this season. Brad Stevens’ crew are 5-2 after playing their second game in as many days, including going a solid 3-1 on the road.

When the Celtics and Bulls collide, OVER bettors are laughing all the way to the bank. In the last five meetings between the squads, the OVER is a perfect 5-0.
