The Boston Celtics are on a lengthy home win streak. Will they add to it today when they host the Utah Jazz at 7:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Celtics are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -5.5 points against the Jazz tonight. The over/under total for the game has been set at 202.5 points.

Boston is 35-25 on the season, 19-10 at home and 33-26-1 against the spread. Utah is 28-30 overall, 9-18 on the road and 28-30 against the spread. The home team has won four of the last five in this series, including the lone meeting on Feb. 19 in Utah. Boston is 6-2-2 against the spread in the last 10 games of this series.

What does the public think about this game?

Boston has been quietly climbing up the Eastern Conference standings. The Celtics are now third in the East after winning seven of their last 10. They have also won 10 straight games at home and are 16-12-1 against the spread at home this season, the fourth best cover rate in the NBA. Utah has covered in just one of its last seven games, three of which were road games. The Jazz are just 12-15 ATS on the road on the season. With Boston playing so well, a 5.5-point spread at home seems too small to pass up.
