Los Angeles Clippers vs Boston Celtics Betting Picks

Any betting expert will surely have a hard time coming up with a confident NBA basketball pick for this particular game. Both coming off a loss, the Celtics and the Clippers are locked in another high-leverage game with the winner getting a ton of momentum heading into the next match.

Moneyline: Bet on the Clippers at +100. Los Angeles just had a tough loss against the Sixers, so expect them to double the effort against another Eastern Conference elite. They are also 6-4 on the road against Eastern Conference teams.

ATS: Pick the Clippers to cover the spread. With the spread set this narrow, my money is on the Clips, who are 14-7 ATS against East teams.

TOTALs: Pick the UNDER. The last time these two teams played each other, they combined for 211 points. I am expecting a rough, playoff-atmosphere battle at TD Garden.

Score Prediction: 109 – 105 Clippers
