Who the Public Likes: Boston. As of Thursday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Celtics to cover the spread. Online bettors are taking the over at a 64 percent clip.

Who We Like: Washington won the only meeting this season by a count of 111-103 in Boston. The Celtics are 6-4 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the over is 7-3. Boston lost its last game 111-91 at Toronto, which ended a four-game winning streak. The Celtics are 6-4 ATS in its last 10 games, while the under has gone 6-4. Washington dropped its last game 115-102 at the 76ers, which ended a five-game winning streak. The Wizards are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 contests, while the over has gone 7-3.

I have to go with Boston here. The contest at Toronto was tougher than this one and it was the first game with Kyrie Irving back in the lineup. Expect a better effort here against a Washington team that isn't as good without John Wall available.

NBA DAILY PREDICTION: BOSTON CELTICS +1.5
