Boston at Chicago

1 unit on Chicago -6 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
The Celtics took a beating last night and now need to travel on the road to play in Chicago. Not a good situation anyway you slice it. The Bulls have won eight straight at home and the Celts struggle mightily away from the Fleet Center. Home favorites off 5+ wins facing a team off a loss are 88-50 (64%) ATS over the past five seasons in the NBA. The Celtics usually fall flat after high scoring games as they are just 2-8 ATSafter a combined score of 215 points or more this season and 18-35 ATS after allowing 105 points or more over the last 3 seasons. The Bulls hold opponents to under 90 points per game at home. They'll do it again tonight and get the cover. One star on Chicago minus the points.
