NBA Betting Trends

Boston

The Celtics are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games. Boston is 1-4 ATS in its last five games versus the Southwest Division. 

San Antonio

The Spurs are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games versus the Eastern Conference. San Antonio is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games.

Prediction:

Boston is on a roll but if you look at the three road wins during the streak - Knicks, Cavs and Hornets - it's not exactly a murderer's row. San Antonio was able to remain at home after Thursday's win whereas Boston had to travel in. With Aldridge looking rejuvenated last game, the Spurs have one of their biggest weapons once again playing up to his capabilities. Going with San Antonio to protect its home court here.
