Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics are currently third in the NBA Eastern Conference playoff standings and they are a game behind the Toronto Raptors with a record of 40-17. On the road, this team has been doing well winning 17 of their 29 games. They are coming off from a good bounce-back win and hopes to capitalize on that to score more victories in this western swing. If it was not for the loss against the Lakers, this team could have been on a four-game winning streak. Jayson Tatum is emerging as a star in this league and this team has been playing well without Kemba Walker. Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward have been a great help for Tatum as both players are very effective on the wing at both ends of the floor.

Donovan Mitchell needs to mature faster into an elite level in order for this team to get a chance to go higher in the standings while Rudy Gobert is still one of the best defenders in the NBA.
