Free NBA Pick:

Chicago Bulls +5.5

The OVER is a solid selection here, but the play is Chicago. Boston will be playing the second half of a back-to-back after hosting Cleveland on Sunday and the Celtics have struggled of late failing to cover the number in four of the last six and have lost each of the last three straight up. Chicago has not fared well straight up, but the Bulls have covered the nut in eight of the last 10 and will play well enough to cover on Monday. Final Score Prediction, Boston Celtics win but fall short ATS 111-109.
