NBA Betting Trends

Boston

The Celtics are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four road games. Boston is 2-8-1 ATS in its last 11 games versus the Pacific Division.

Golden State

The Warriors are 16-34-3 ATS in their last 53 games versus the Atlantic Division. Golden State is 4-11-1 ATS in its last 16 games overall.

Prediction:

The Celtics are on some kind of role and it's likely to consider here. But with travel all the way to the West Coast in consideration, we must decide whether Boston is going to win by enough to cover this spread. I'm going to say no. This is a national TV game so guys like Russell and Green might put a little more effort into this one, while the fatigue factor with Boston could contribute. Jetlag is real. I'm going to take the points with the Warriors and hope they show more life than they did on the road two nights ago.
