Why Bet on the Boston Celtics?

The Celtics are in fine form with eight wins in ten games. We expect the team to give the Bulls a tough time as they step inside the United Center on Wednesday night. As a team, the Celts average 111.2 points (13th) per game on 46.4% shooting (14th). They have competent numbers within the perimeter and average 54.5% two-point shooting (seventh) this season. The Celtics are also consistent shooters from the line with an 81.7% free-throw success rate (second).

Defense is where the Celtics shine. They hold teams to 104.3 points per game and are currently the league-best record. They have incredible shooting defense that keeps opponents to 43.4% shooting (first). The team averages a league-best 49.7% opponent two-point and a second-best 33.9% opponent three-point percentage. Furthermore, the squad averages 35.5 defensive rebounds (fifth) per game which greatly helps with the team’s defense.

Robert Williams III nurses a knee injury that could leave him on the sidelines until at least May 1. Meanwhile, starters Jaylen Brown (knee), Jayson Tatum (knee), and Al Horford (back) remain under observation and await a decision before game time.

Why Bet on the Chicago Bulls?

The Bulls are two and three in their last five games. Despite starting the season on a positive note, the team struggled to find traction in the second half of the calendar. Nonetheless, the team has enough in the bag for a playoff appearance.

Chicago does well on offense with Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan leading the charge. The team averages 111.7 points (11th) per game on 48.0% shooting (third). The Bulls might fall behind in two-point shooting at 53.6% (16th), but have the edge from beyond the arc at 36.8% shooting (fourth). Additionally, the Bulls also have impressive free-throw stats at 81.3% from the line (third).

Defensively, the Bulls need to double down to keep the Celtics in their sights. So far, the team limits opponents to 111.4 points (16th) per game on 47.1% shooting (26th). Chicago holds teams to 36.4% three-point shooting (26th) but defends short and mid-range shots better with a 53.2% opponent two-point percentage (15th).

Celtics vs. Bulls Expert Betting Prediction

The Bulls continue to suffer defeat when playing the better teams in the league, and they’re on the verge of a three-game losing streak here. This makes the team tougher to trust. However, covering the spread should be doable with home advantage on their end, with chances of getting a win achievable if Boston’s lineup comes short.

Simultaneously, the Celtics are well-rested and have every reason to go all out at this stage. They have the No. 2 seed position to fight for. The team also delivers solid results on the road, making them the game favorites.
