Red Hot Celtics Head To Chicago

April 04, 2012

The Boston Celtics are one of the hottest teams in the NBA. They travel to the United Center April 5 to take on the Chicago Bulls in a key matchup for both teams. Boston is 30-22 on the season. They are winners of five straight games and seven of their last 10. The great play has moved them into fourth place in the playoff race in the East, more importantly they are 1 ½ games ahead of division rival Philadelphia in the race to win the division.

Chicago has struggled of late. The Bulls have lost two straight and are 6-4 SU over their last 10 games. The Bulls still hold the league’s best record at 43-13, but they are just percentage points ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder for that distinction. They lead the Miami Heat by 2 ½ games in the East.

Key to Boston’s recent success has been the resurgence of veteran players Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Both are healthy once again and playing at that top of their games. Chicago has suffered without the services of their best player and reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose. The point guard has been sidelined with a groin injury and is still doubtful for this game.

Chicago leads the head to head battle 6-4 SU and 7-3 ATS over Boston in the last 10 games between them. This season the two teams have played three games head to head and Chicago is 2-1 SU and ATS in those three games. In two of the three games, the total ended UNDER.

Injuries will be key to this matchup as they so often are. If Derrick Rose cannot play or if he is less than 100% then the Celtics have an excellent opportunity to pull off an upset at the United Center. Take the Celtics plus the points in this since they will keep it close regardless if they win it SU. The total will be UNDER, as the Celtics defense will hold the Bulls in check.
