DeMar DeRozan to score 25+ Points (-160)

DeRozan has cleared this line in all 3 meetings with the Celtics this season, averaging 33 points in those games. In less than 35 minutes per game he is shooting just over 53% from the field and 50% from 3-point land against the Cs, plus in his only visit to TD Garden this season he dropped an impressive 46 points. In that game he didn’t connect on a 3, which makes the performance all that impressive. Although his shooting from the perimeter has been off over the last 10 games, DeRozan is still averaging 28.2 ppg and is one of the main reasons why Chicago has 8 wins over the last 11 outings. He has a 35 and 44 point game in 2 of his last 4 overall, I’m confident he’s capable of delivering yet another big game on the road for the Bulls.

Monday’s NBA mega parlay has +1357 odds!

Zach LaVine Over 2.5 made threes (-130)

It hasn’t been just DeRozan who has dominated over the past 10 games for Chicago. Zach LaVine is also putting up numbers, averaging 27.5 points per game on an impressive 51.4% shooting from the perimeter. He put on a show against Philadelphia a couple of games ago, knocking down 11 of 13 attempts from downtown, and followed it up with 6 treys in the win over Utah. He has cleared this line in 3 of 4 games played this year, and in 9 of 15 games played in the month of December. Along with that consistency, we can also count on Boston’s inability to defend the 3-ball over their last 3 games (they have allowed 35.1% shooting from 3, which is fairly mediocre). Hopefully LaVine catches fire early here and knocks down at least 3.

Jayson Tatum to record 6+ assists (-105)

Marcus Smart is set to miss yet another game for Boston, that means the duo of Tatum and Brown will have to pick up the playmaking duties a bit. Tatum is the better scorer, but also averages more assists than Brown, so I’m giving him the edge in the assists department tonight. Against the Bulls he is averaging exactly 6 dimes a game in the 3 meetings this season. A big reason why he’s been so active in getting his teammates involved is because the Bulls have limited his shooting to just 41% from the field. Chicago obviously has a good game-plan against him, so I think Tatum focuses more on being a playmaker for Boston on Monday. Chicago is allowing 29.3 assists per game over their last 3 outings, that’s the 2nd-worst mark in the entire NBA. Tatum should rack up the assists with ease.

Jaylen Brown to record 6+ rebounds (-165)

Brown’s rebounding has been consistent over the past 10 games at 6.4 a night. He has cleared this line 3 times in his last 5 games, with Smart out of the line-up there will be an extra 4-5 rebounds for the backcourt to get here and that’s where Brown shines. In his last 7 games against the Bulls he has failed to record 6 rebounds just once, so I’m fairly confident he can continue the streak tonight. The Bulls rank only 26th in the NBA in rebounds per game averaging just 49.1 a night. All 3 meetings between these teams this season have gone over 220 points, so I think we can expect a high-paced offense from both teams — which should lead to an increase in rebounding production. Alex Caruso probably not playing also helps him a bit; that’s one less pesky defender he has to worry about on Monday. Look for Brown to be active on the glass.
