LINE MOVEMENT

Boston opened as a 9-point road favorite and that’s where the line currently sits at the majority of online sportsbooks. The total, meanwhile, sits at 210, having not moved off the original number either.

WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE

As of this writing, 64% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Celtics to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 53% of the betting tickets are on the over.

KEY INJURIES

Kyrie Irving (knee) remains out for the Celtics and so does Marcus Smart (thumb), as well as Gordon Hayward (ankle, out for the year). On the other side, Devin Booker (hand) is questionable, TJ Warren (knee) is doubtful, and Tyson Chandler (neck) is out.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Suns are dreadful both on the court and at the betting window. They’re 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall, are winless at 0-4 at the betting window in their last four home games, and are 3-13 against the number in their last 16 games coming off an ATS win. On the other side, the Celtics have covered the spread in five of their last six games overall, are 5-1 against the number in their last six games versus Western Conference foes, and 35-16 ATS in their last 51 road games.
