Bet on Celtics vs. Spurs

No one could have predicted this out of Boston after the Gordon Hayward broken ankle all the way back in the season opener. Not only are the Celtics winning games, but also covering the spread far more often than not. Eventually the ATS numbers even out and only defeating Dallas by seven the last game is evidence of that. The Spurs are very tough at home, going 12-2 straight up. Look for them to take down the Celtics as a small favorite on ESPN tonight.
