OUR PREDICTION: This is simply way too many points to hand a Suns team that has been dreadful, but is also due to cover. The Suns are 4-1 against the spread in their last five trips to Boston and have covered in 10 of the last 14 games versus the Celtics overall. The Celtics are also just 5-12 at the betting window in their last 17 games coming off a win and are 2-8 against the number in their last 10 games versus Pacific Division opponents.
