Detroit Pistons vs Boston Celtics Betting Picks

The Pistons are 3-7 in their last 10 games, while the Celtics are 6-4 in their last 10. Boston, who is one of the top NBA future odds picks, suffered three consecutive setbacks at the hands of Wizards, Sixers and Spurs but has since bounced back with two dominant wins over the Pelicans and the Bulls.

Moneyline: Back the Celtics to cruise to an easy win over the Pistons. Boston simply dominated the Pistons from end-to-end in their first game, and I am expecting more of the same in Wednesday’s play.

ATS: The Celtics will get their third straight ATS win after covering huge spreads against the Pelicans and the Bulls.

TOTALs: The total opened at 217 points. Their first meeting between these two teams produced only 207 points, giving me more reasons to pick UNDER.

Score Prediction: 109 – 98 Celtics
