NBA Betting – Chicago Bulls at Boston Celtics

November 17th, 2023 Live NBA Betting Lines

NBA betting odds on Friday have the Boston Celtics heavily favored over the Chicago Bulls in a game televised on ESPN. Both teams opened up their seasons on Tuesday and now have had two days off.  The Celtics are always a popular choice in online basketball betting and that should be the case again in this NBA  matchup.

NBA on the Bulls could be a bit different this season.  Not much is known about head coach Vinny Del Negro and is coaching style so the first few games may be a testing ground for the Bulls.  It will not be easy for the Bulls in this game considering the Celtics were 35-6 during the regular season at home last year according to online basketball betting numbers.  The Celtics out-scored their opponents at home by an average of 12.5 points per game last season according to online basketball betting stats.  They also averaged 42.2 rebounds per game at home last season compared to 37.6 rebounds per game for their opponents according to NBA  stats.  The Celtics have the big three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen while the Bulls will look to Luol Deng to keep them in the game according to NBA experts.

Surprisingly, the Bulls have done okay against the Celtics except for last season according to online basketball betting stats.  The Bulls are 6-4 straight up and 5-5 against the NBA  pointspread in the last 10 meetings against Boston.  Last year though it was all Celtics as they won 116-93 at home and 106-92 on the road according to NBA betting stats.  Last year the game at Chicago was a push on the total while the game at Boston went over according to NBA betting stats.  In fact, three of the last four games at Boston between the two teams have gone over the NBA betting number.

Gamblers looking to take Boston in NBA betting just have to worry about a late letdown because the Celtics will probably win the game straight up.  If you are looking atthe Bulls you have to worry about getting blown out, as it happened twice last season in NBA betting.
