Lakers vs. Celtics Pick

Lakers vs. Celtics NBA Predictions Against the Spread 11/8/17

Are the Los Angeles Lakers going to stay within the number Wednesday night on national TV at the Boston Celtics? Game time is 8PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at, the Celtics are a 7-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is listed at 212 points.

Los Angeles comes into action with a 5-5 record after a 107-102 home win Sunday night over the Grizzlies. Boston is riding a nine-game winning streak and is 9-2 following a 110-107 victory at the Hawks. The two meetings last season were split straight up and ATS. The under went 2-0. 

The Lakers were led by Brook Lopez with 21 points and five rebounds in the win over Memphis. Brandon Ingram tallied 20 points and seven boards. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Jordan Clarkson both scored 15. Los Angeles held on despite being outscored 32-19 in the fourth quarter.

Kyrie Irving poured in 35 points to go with seven assists in the win at Atlanta. Jayson Tatum contributed 21 points and eight rebounds. Al Horford, who will miss tonight's game while in the concussion protocol, added 15 points along with 10 rebounds and nine assists. Boston made 14 3-pointers in the contest.

The Lakers are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.

Bet on Lakers vs. Celtics

Boston has been on a roll since starting the season 0-2 and losing Gordon Hayward for the season to a broken ankle. But with Horford being out and the Lakers playing competitive basketball nearly every game this season, this has the makings of a game that will stay close. Perhaps Boston will win again to move its win streak to 10 games, but expect LA to at least stay within seven points.
