Celtics + Bulls Betting Odds + Trends


If the NBA playoffs are a “what have you done for me lately world”, don’t be surprised to see a sizeable upset in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

The #7-seeded Chicago Bulls enter as one of the hottest teams in the league as it prepares to take on defending champion Boston.

 In fact, both teams were 12-4 in their L16 games. However, if the teams’ entire body of work is what matters, then it’s clearly advantage Celtics, who find themselves a -500 series favorite at Sportsbook.com.

Make no doubt about it, the Bulls come into the playoffs playing their best basketball of the season, and the midseason trade in which they acquired Brad Miller and John Salmons from Sacramento really seems to be paying dividends.

Chicago is playing particularly well on the offensive end, as they topped the 125-point mark three times in the last month and were held below 97-points just once in their final 17 contests.

Boston hoped to have Kevin Garnett back for the postseason but the latest indications reveal that he’s likely out for the posteseason. He has been down with a knee injury for most of the late part of the season, The team has played well without him, but without KG, the chances of repeating or even reaching the conference finals are slim.

Prediction: Boston in seven games
