Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards Betting Picks
The Celtics should be the popular NBA spread bet entering the game since they are still a very good team even without Kemba Walker. I won’t be surprised if the spread winds up in double digits given the uncertainty surrounding Bradley Beal’s availability for the upcoming game.
Moneyline: The Celtics will cruise to their fourth straight win and 26th win of the season. They are 11-6 SU on the road and 21-4 SU as favorites.
ATS: The Celtics aren’t that dominant against sub .500 teams in their past two games. Still, my bet is for them to cover the 8.5-point spread since the Wizards’ roster is very much depleted.
TOTALs: The total opened at 226.5 points. Washington proved in their last win over the Nuggets that they can still score in bundles even without Bradley Beal. However, Boston is the No.1 defensive team in the NBA right now and I think the road team will limit the Wizards below 110 points. I pick UNDER.
Score Prediction: 115 – 100 Celtics
