Chicago Hanging Tight

Celtics Narrowly Win on the Road

Boston is going to win this game. Sure, the game is in Chicago, but the Celtics are going to win the game. The deal here though – the spread is pretty high for a team in Chicago that can compete. They just cannot find enough ways to win this game.

Our final bet is on the Chicago Bulls +7.5 to cover the spread against the Boston Celtics. We hope this is a great game, and wish you the best of luck!
