Cavs vs. Celtics Prediction

Will the Celtics pull off small upset vs. Cavs? NBA Predictions 3/1/17

Will the Celtics pull off the small upset versus the Cavaliers tonight at 8:00PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Celtics are 1-point home underdogs versus the Cavaliers while the over/under currently sits at 222 points. While the point spread hasn't moved off the original number, the over/under has dropped slightly from 222.5 down to 222.

The Cavaliers enter play having won eight of their last 10 games and covered the point spread in seven of those 10 contests. That said, they're just 27-29 against the number on the season, including 11-15 against the spread on the road.

The Celtics have won six of their last 10 games but are just 4-6 against the number during that same span. They're 30-28 at the betting window on the season but can't figure it out at home, going just 11-18 against the number in Boston.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

OUR PREDICTION: The Celtics are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games coming off a loss of more than 10 points. They're also 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight games versus a team with a winning percentage above .600 and are 7-3-1 at the betting window in their last 11 games versus Central Division opponents. This is the perfect statement game for a Boston team that has climbed all the way up to second place in the East but has yet to prove it can beat the Cavs. I like the home team with something to prove tonight.
