After faltering to Boston at home 89-105 in early March, Chicago looks to pay them back on their home court this time. Boston opened up as 11 point favorites and have since dropped to 10 point favorites probably due to a combination of Chicago covering their last three games and Boston’s morale maybe down due to news of Kyrie Irving being out for the post season.
Chicago has been in the process of tanking all season, while they have lost seven of their last 10 contests. However, they have decided to play with more effort in their last four games going 3-1 SU and 4-0 ATS. Their most recent outing resulted in a 120-114 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.
Statistically, it was a close contest, but what really made the difference in this contest was Chicago’s willingness to hustle. They forced 20 turnovers while scoring 28 points off of those turnovers.
They are shooting a measly 42.2% from the field in their last five games, which is off from their season average of 43.53%. Defensively they have only given up a modest 102.2 PPG in that span.
Chicago’s offense on the road has been dreadful as they rank 22nd in PPG, 30th in FG% and 29th in 3PT%. The defense has been just as bad ranking 27th in PPG, 20th in FG%, 24th in 3PT% and 29th in RPG.
Despite being without some of their best players, Boston continues rolling along winning seven of their last 10 contests while going 7-3 ATS as well. Their last contest resulted in a shellacking to the slumping Toronto Raptors 78-96.
This was more of a bounce-back game for Toronto who had been going through a little slump. Even so, Boston was man-handled for most of the game only shooting 33% from the field, while they only made three three-pointers.
The plus side of that game was Boston was able to make it to the free throw line 28 times while they converted 25 of them.
Like Chicago, Boston is converting 42.2% of their shots in their last five contests, which is off from their season average of 44.93%. The defense has been their usual selves giving up just 97.8 PPG in that span.
At home, Boston doesn’t blow teams away with offense ranking 21st in PPG, 25th in FG% and 8th in 3PT%. The defense on the other hand is what made them playoff contenders as they rank 3rd in PPG, 4th in FG%, 3rd in 3PT% and 24th in RPG.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction: Irving-less Boston steamrolls Chicago
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Boston -10
With the breaking news of Kyrie Irving not returning for the postseason, Boston may be feeling pretty devastated right about now. However, I expect Brad Stevens to continue getting this team to rally around each other, which has been evidenced by their 7-3 ATS in their last 10.
Boston should show up focused and motivated against a tanking Chicago squad who has just won too many games in a row.
