Online NBA betting odds have the Boston Celtics heavily favored on Friday against the Chicago Bulls.
Most gamblers will be looking at the Celtics in this game but is that a good idea? Let’s look at this basketball betting matchup.
Online NBA betting scheduling information shows that the Bulls are in the first of a back-to-back situation as they are at Utah tomorrow. Basketball betting history tells us that the Bulls and Celtics have actually split their last 10 meetings straight up. You have to remember though that until last season, the Celtics were not very good. It was only after getting Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen that they became a good team and eventually World Champions. Earlier this season in Boston, the Celtics blew away the Bulls by a score of 96-80 as 10 point online NBA betting favorites. Last season the Celtics won all four games against Chicago and covered the NBA odds every single time. That is why sometimes you need to look at recent history and not go too far back in online NBA betting.
The Under is 6-3-1 in the last ten meetings between the two teams as online NBA betting numbers tell us but again, you need to look at recent history. Last year the over was actually 2-1-1 in the four meetings as online NBA betting numbers show. The game earlier this year did go under the NBA odds but only because the Bulls were pathetic offensively. Online NBA betting stats show that Chicago is only a slight under team this season while the Celtics have similar over/under numbers. Boston does rank right near the top in defense but the online NBA betting totals on their games is oftentimes quite low.
Chicago has hovered around the .500 mark this season. Ben Gordon and rookie Derrick Rose have been leading the team in scoring as online NBA betting stats tell us. Chicago can cover the basketball betting spread in this game against Boston but they almost assuredly won’t win straight up. Taking a team you don’t think can win is always tough in online NBA betting.
