Chicago and Boston will both be playing their second games in as many nights and the advantage here goes to Boston. The Bulls have failed to cover the number in five of the last six played on the road. Boston has covered the nut in two of the last three and Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will prove to be too much for the Bulls defense to contain, while Boston will keep the offense of Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan in check. Final Score Prediction, Boston Celtics win and cover ATS 112-106.
