Our friends at Bookmaker have released their 2017 NBA First Round series betting predictions for Celtics vs. Bulls and Cavs vs. Pacers.

No.1 Boston Celtics (-1000) vs. No.8 Chicago Bulls (+600)

The Bulls are lucky to be in the playoffs, squeaking into the postseason with a .500 record. The trio of Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo has not meshed as the organization had hoped, and Chicago’s lack of perimeter scoring makes it difficult for them to put up a lot of points. No playoff team has made fewer three-pointers than the Bulls, while the Celtics are third in threes per contest. Boston is just too well coached and too well balanced to blow this series.

Prediction: Celtics in five

No.2 Cleveland Cavaliers (-1400) vs. No.7 Indiana Pacers (+675)

The Cavaliers might have lost the No.1 seed, but they are still the best team in the East. Ever since LeBron James began his string of six straight NBA Finals appearances, he’s lost just two total first-round games with four straight sweeps. Indiana doesn’t have much of a chance to make this a series, and they won’t do more than maybe steal a game at home.

Prediction: Cavs in five
