Celtics vs. Spurs Prediction

NBA Boston Celtics vs. San Antonio Spurs Predictions 12/14/16

The Spurs are off to a great start in 2016 but are they a good bet to cover at home versus the Celtics tonight at 9:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Spurs are 7.5-point home favorites versus the Celtics while the over/under for tonight's game sits at 199. While the point spread hasn't moved off that 7.5 number, the total opened at 201.5 before being bet down to the current number of 199.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

CELTICS KEY TRENDS: The Celtics have been a great road bet of late, going 6-1-1 at the betting window in their last eight games away from Boston. They're also a near-perfect 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five road games versus a team wit a winning home record and are 5-1-1 against the number in their last seven games coming off a straight up loss.

SPURS KEY TRENDS: The Spurs have not been a good home play, going 1-4 against the number in their last five home games. They're also just 1-6 at the betting window in their last seven home games versus a team with a winning road record, are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games coming off  a win, and have failed to cover in five of their last seven games overall.

OUR PREDICTION: The Celtics will make this a game tonight. They're 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games in San Antonio and as previously mentioned, they have been a great road play of late. Speaking of the road team, the away squad is 20-7-2 at the betting window in the last 29 meetings between these two teams. The Spurs are a heavy public team so bettors that aren't afraid to roll the dice on the Celtics tonight are getting great value. I like the dog here.
