NBA FREE PICK: Take Boston. According to latest NBA trends, Celtics are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a S.U. win, 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS win and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

Boston (32-27 SU, 26-30-3 ATS, 29-29-1 O/U) has won three straight including a 109-101 road win over Philadelphia on Tuesday giving 3. Indiana (38-22 SU, 34-26 ATS, 25-34-1 O/U) is coming off a 97-92 home win over Chicago giving 7.5. The Celtics have won three straight and have covered four of their last six on the road.  These two teams would match up in the first round of the playoff if the season ended today. Boston received another lift from Jeff Green, who scored 16 points in 28 minutes off the bench on Tuesday in their road win over Philadelphia. The Celtics are only 1 1/2 games out of the No. 4 spot in the East, which would gain them home court advantage in the first round. Avery Bradley scored 22 points on Tuesday and has hit double figures in three of the last five games. Both teams are strong defensively though Boston is a tough matchup because they can go small as Green can play power forward with Kevin Garnett at center.
