The Bulls might not have Dwyane Wade tonight, but they won’t limit their first half scoring. Chicago and Boston have had some high-scoring first halves over their last five meetings, and before the break, this one could look like an exhibition game early and often.

I am using some of the rights before the break logic for this one as well, but for the Bulls and Celtics, the over on the first half looks like the best play. At 101 ½ in the NBA Odds, we could see a very high scoring first half in Chicago, especially with the Celtics coming off a game last night.

If that’s the case, the over is a fine value for this one. In their last five games against one another, the Celtics and Bulls have scored more than 100 points combined in the first half in four of their last five and considering the C’s are tired, this one is a fine value play.

While Chicago’s defense has started to improve, they have scored well at home averaging over 54 points per first half. Add the over for this game and close out the first half with a couple of wins!
