Celtics 124, Bulls 108
As you would expect, the Celtics (-500) are big moneyline favorites over the Bulls (+360) Monday night. Boston has been fantastic at home this season, winning 15 of its last 18 games at the Garden. Look for the Celtics to win this game fairly easily on Monday night, but PASS on the moneyline in favor of more profitable odds on the spread.

Line/Against the Spread (ATS)
The CELTICS (-10.5, +105) will need to win by at least 11 points to cover the spread. While that does seem like an awful lot of points, the Bulls have covered just once in their last seven games. They just don’t have the offense to keep up with the Celtics and they lack the ability to rebound, which could be a major problem.
The total for this Eastern Conference matchup is set at 213.5. While Chicago’s offense might struggle to score, Boston will not. Don’t be surprised if they score into the 120s as Chicago’s defense has been poor for the last few weeks. I like the OVER 213.5 (-128) to hit.
