Picks and Predictions for Los Angeles Clippers VS Boston Celtics
- Clippers: 113
- Celtics: 121
The Celtics (-230) will charge you more than twice your potential return, which is risky for a single bet. As a result, there is little value here, even when using a multi-team parlay.
Against the Spread
The Celtics -6.5 (-102) are a good bet as the home team seeks vengeance after having to lose to the Clippers earlier this month.
Whereas the Clippers are 8-2 ATS in their last ten games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, they are just 3-9 ATS in their last 12 against teams with a scoring average greater than.600.
The Celtics are 10-3 against winning teams in their last 13 games. Boston has also been a cover machine recently, going 8-2 ATS in its last ten games following a cover.
The Over 227.5 (-110) is the safest bet on the board.
The Clippers have hit the Over in four straight games and are 11-1 in their last 12 road games. The Over is also 6-2-1 in the last nine games against opponents with a winning record overall.
The Celtics are 12-4 in their last 16 home games and 6-2-1 in their last nine games against the opposition with a winning record.
