Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls are on back-to-back losses after being blown away by the title-contending teams Brooklyn Nets and the more recent was against the Golden State Warriors. Their current record falls down to 27-13 and they are just one loss away from losing their spot as the top squad in the East. The bad news is that Zach LaVine will not be playing in this game and if he does, he won’t be 100%. It is now up to DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic to carry the team while Lonzo Ball needs to step up in the scoring department. We should see more of Coby White with LaVine sidelined.

Boston Celtics Betting

The Boston Celtics just got their three-game winning streak snapped by the gritty Philadelphia 76ers with the final score settling at 99-111. They are currently placed outside the play-in tournament picture with their record at 21-22 and they trail the New York Knicks by just half a game. Against the Sixers, Jaylen Brown led the team with 21 points while Jayson Tatum tallied a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds but committed seven turnovers. Payton Pritchard came off the bench with 17 points while Robert Williams II manned the center position and provided the Celtics with 12 points and 14 boards.
