Upsets A Rarity When Celtics, Bulls Clash

Odds have seemed to be somewhat prophetic when it comes to games between the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls. The team closing as the favorite has gone 14-4 SU in the past 18 between the Celtics and Bulls while also covering in eight of the past 11.

Shark Bites
  • The Celtics are 3-12 SU in their last 15 games on the road against the Bulls.
  • The Bulls are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games as underdog.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Celtics' last 12 games as road favorites.

It seemed as though the series may be getting away from the Celtics after going down 2-0 but a dominant win in Game 3 has pep in Boston’s step. It wasn’t just a one-man show for the Celtics either, as four of their five starters scored at least 15 points. Ball security was also at the forefront of that affair with the Celtics giving up just 12 turnovers compared to 34 assists.

The Bulls were clearly missing Rajon Rondo in Game 3. Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams shot a combined 3-for-10 with eight points and seven turnovers. Jimmy Butler is coming off his worst game in over a month with the All-Star shooting 33.3 percent from the floor and missing all four of his three-point attempts.
