LINE MOVEMENT

Boston opened as an 11-point fave before the line was bet up, while the total has risen after opening at 200. Most books now have the line and total where YouWager has it.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Monday afternoon, 67 percent of public bets have sided with the Celtics. Online wager info also shows that 65 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Grizzlies guard Tyreke Evans missed the last game with a rib injury and will not suit up again tonight. For the Celtics, center Aron Baynes missed the last game with an elbow injury and is questionable for tonight's contest.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Grizzlies are making no secret they are giving as much time as possible to their young players with Deyonta Davis, Ivan Rabb and Jarell Martin among those who saw increased roles last game in a 115-89 loss at the Heat. I expect those minutes to be similar tonight at a Boston team that should feast. This one could get ugly fast and I'd be surprised if Memphis can keep it within the number, especially if Marc Gasol sees his minutes trimmed.
