Two teams going in opposite directions as far as betting is concerned hit the hardwood tonight at the TD Garden when the Celtics welcome the Bulls to Beantown. The Celtics have put together a mini run over their past six games, going 5-1 ATS, while the Bulls have been struggling at the betting window, going 1-4 ATS in their last five games.
The Bulls have been a poor bet all season, going just 6-12 ATS and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games. They have, however, dominated in the Celtics in all aspects in recent years, going 8-2 SU and 7-2-1 ATS against them in their last 10 matchups.
Chicago beat Boston last time they played, but Celtics’ backers will be happy to learn that they’re a strong ATS bet after losing the previous game in a matchup, going 16-6 ATS in their last 22 games in that situation.
The UNDER, which opened at 200.5, is trending for both teams. The total has gone UNDER in three of the last four games for both teams when playing on one day’s rest. The teams’ combined O/U record for the season is 14-25.
