Our NBA Live Odds page pulls spreads and totals from multiple different online sportsbooks so you can compare betting odds to ensure you’re getting the best line.

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook BetNow.eu, the Celtics are 2-point favorites to beat the Clippers. The total, meanwhile, sits at 226 points and as of this writing, 58% of the public betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Celtics to cover the point spread.

Boston Celtics Fantasy Spin

Jayson Tatum (right shoulder soreness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers. Tatum hasn't missed a game all season but owners will need to check back after Boston's shootaround to confirm his status. If he is ruled out, his workload should fall primarily to Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown, with Semi Ojeleye also available to scoop up some minutes.

Los Angeles Clippers Fantasy Spin

Danilo Gallinari scored 34 points with six rebounds, two assists and two triples in 34 minutes vs. the Thunder on Friday. He finished 10-of-19 from the field and 12-of-15 from the line, combining with Lou Williams for 74 points as the Clippers rattled off their fourth straight win. The Clippers are 7th in the West (38-29) and are starting to pull away from the Kings (32-32) and Wolves (30-35), so Gallo's fantasy value looks as safe as it's ever been.

NBA Betting Trends

Boston

The Celtics are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five games overall.

Los Angeles

The Clippers have covered the spread in six straight when their opponent scores 100 points or more in its previous game.

Prediction

The Clippers will have to deal with a red-hot Marcus Smart and Kyrie Irving but with Tatum likely out, I like L.A. to keep rolling. The Clippers are a perfect 6-0 at the betting window in their last six games overall and are 4-0 against the number in their last four home games. The Celtics meanwhile, are just 1-5 at the betting window in their last six games versus the Clippers and are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games playing on one day of rest.
