Bet Tonight's NBA Action

As of Wednesday afternoon, 76 percent of public bets have come in on the Celtics to cover the spread. Online wager info also shows that 54 percent of bets are also coming in on the over.

Boston won the first meeting this season by a score of 113-102, which came before the Clippers dealt away Blake Griffin and changed the structure of their roster. But LA has actually looked pretty darn good since the trade, having won four of five straight up and also going 3-2 ATS. The under has been a huge money play for bettors on Clippers games as eight straight times they have failed to reach the total. As for Boston, it has lost two in a row and is coming off a lopsided 121-99 home defeat to the retooled Cavaliers. The Celtics have failed to cover in three of their last four games, but that was on the heels of a stretch where they covered six straight games. The series is tied 5-5 in the last 10 meetings, while the over has gone 5-4-1.

This is Los Angeles' fourth game on this road trip and while they have been impressive lately, fatigue does wear in. Boston is going to be ultra focused on bouncing back after its last two home flops. I am betting on Boston to win decisively tonight.
