The long time East Coast rivals are meeting Monday evening in the Mondays NBA contest. The Boston Celtics are on the road to meet the Chicago Bulls at United Center in Chicago with the first hoop scheduled for 8:10 PM ET.

With the New Orleans Pelicans behind by 15, the Boston Celtics (13-3, 9-7-0 ATS) grabbed control and won 117-109. The team has now won nine straight games, including five straight victories away from home. The squad won in Atlanta as well, and this game versus Chicago will mark the conclusion of a three-game road trip. The road record of the Celtics is 7-2.
The Celtics’ previous game saw all five of their starters score in double digits despite being minus three players. Brown finished with a final line of 10 rebounds and 27 points on 10 of his 20 attempts. Derrick White contributed 26 points overall on 9-12 shooting, including 6-8 from beyond the arc.

Our choice for today, Jayson Tatum, the early MVP candidate had a 19 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists and needed 3 more rebounds for a triple double. On top of that he had a bad time from behind the line, scoring two three-pointers from 10 attempts, and had 3 turnovers. This however was enough for his team to take a win against the Pelicans on the road.

For today Jason Tatum is set at 27.5 points which is 3 points behind his average this season, and we believe he will recover from the bad shooting night he had few days ago in New Orleans. Backing Tatum to score at least 28 points against the Bulls tonight.

Key Stat: The teams are 7-20 O/U in their last 27 meetings in Chicago

Tip Reasoning

  • The Celtics are 0-3-1 O/U in their last 4 road games
  • The Bulls are 0-5 O/U in their last 5 home games
  • The Bulls are 1-5 O/U in their last 6 games overall

With only a few seconds remaining, the Chicago Bulls (6-10, 7-8-1 ATS) led by two points, but Jalen Suggs sank a three-pointer to give the Orlando Magic a 108-107 victory. The defeat was Chicago’s sixth in the previous seven games and their fourth in a row. Chicago has lost their last three games at the United Center and is 4-5 at home.
DeRozan played well, scoring 41 points on 16 of 30 shots. With his additional double-double of 14 points and 16 rebounds, Nikola Vucevic completed the game. Chicago is a top-three free-throw shooting club overall with an average of 83.7%, but their field-goal percentage of 46.8% places them in 15th place.

Nick Vucevic, the former All Star big man is averaging a double-double this season with more than solid 15.8 PPG and 11.7 RBPG. For this game he is set at 25.5 Points & Rebounds. Since his teammates DeRozan and LaVine might have a difficult time against Tatum and Brown, we believe that Vucevic can be comfortable under the rim.
