Boston Celtics vs Chicago Bulls Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Tuesday, April 20th 2021, at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Boston Celtics vs Chicago Bulls Preview

Nikola Vucevic had 25 points, seven rebounds, and five assists as Chicago utilised a 33-21 third quarter to sail past unscathed at home to the Cleveland Cavaliers over the weekend.

All-Star guard Zach LaVine (COVID-19 protocols) will miss multiple games, an untimely blow considering their playoff aspirations - five games behind the Charlotte Hornets (28-28) currently hold the East’s eighth seed.

Boston has injuries of their own to deal with: key trio Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker (both illness) and Jayson Tatum (ankle) are all listed as questionable or probable on the injury report. Will they power through?  

Boston Celtics vs Chicago Bulls Betting Tips

Unsurprisingly, LaVine's absence (27.5 PPG on 50.6 FG%) significantly weakens the visitors' chances of earning successive wins overnight – having outlasted the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 106-96 win this past weekend.

Although Boston has been inconsistent this term, plagued with multiple injuries and COVID-enforced absences themselves, they are clearly expected to replicate their double-digit victory during the reverse fixture (Jan. 26).

That night, Brown and Tatum combined for 50 points while Daniel Theis had 19 on 8-of-12 shooting. Now, the roles are reversed somewhat: Theis was traded to Chicago and averaging similar PPG averages.

Ultimately, Chicago's success will likely be determined by how well Vucevic does - as well as the supporting cast from the bench, featuring Thaddeus Young, Denzel Valentine and Lauri Markkanen in their Cavs weekend win. 

ESPN's BPI isn't convinced and has given the Celtics an overwhelming advantage (75.5%), which I'm inclined to back here despite their own vulnerabilities.
