Bulls vs. Celtics Game Info

  • Date: Monday, November 21, 2022
  • Time: 8:00 PM ET
  • Venue: United Center -- Chicago, Illinois
  • Coverage: NBCS-CHI and NBCS-BOS

The Celtics have been on fire to start the season, sitting at 13-3, while Chicago is on the opposite side of things, limping, literally and figuratively to a 6-10 record thus far.

Bulls vs. Celtics Odds & Spread

  • All NBA betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
  • Moneyline: BOS: (-225) | CHI: (+188)
  • Spread: BOS: -5.5 (-110) | CHI: +5.5 (-110)
  • Total: 229.5 -- Over: (-110) | Under: (-110)

The Celtics come in as clear favorites in this one. Despite being on the road, that shouldn't surprise anyone. Boston is the much better team and playing better basketball. The total has risen three points in this game since this morning, now sitting at 229.5, the second highest total of the slate tonight.

Bulls vs. Celtics Betting Trends

  • The Celtics are 7-7-1 against the spread this season.
  • The Bulls have always covered the spread this season when underdogs by 6 points or more.
  • Celtics games have finished with a final combined score above the over/under eight times this season.
  • The Bulls have gone over the point total 33.3% of the time this year (five of 15 games with a set point total).
  • Boston has covered the spread in a higher percentage of its home games than away games. It has covered three times in six opportunities at home, and it has covered four times in nine opportunities on the road.
  • In 2022-23 against the spread, Chicago has a better winning percentage at home (.500, 4-4-0 record) than on the road (.429, 3-3-1).

Bulls vs. Celtics Prediction & Pick

The Celtics come into this game winners of nine stright games, while the Bulls have lost four in a row. I don't expect much to change tonight. Boston actually beat Chicago on November 4th to begin this wining streak, although only by four points at the TD Garden. Now, eight additional and consecutive wins later, Boston is playing with much more confidence, winning all but two of those eight games since they last played Chicago by at least six points.

Prediction: Celtics 122 | Bulls 108

Bulls vs. Celtics Best Bet

Yes Jayson Tatum is coming off back-to-back 19-point performances, but he is still averaging 30.3 points on the season and 30.0 points per game over his last 10 games. Additionally, Tatus dropped 31 on these same Bulls when they faced off last time and is averaging 29.7 points in road games this season. A lot of things point to Tatum hitting the over on his point total this evening.

Bet: Jayson Tatum Over 27.5 Points (-115)
