Los Angeles Lakers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Free Pick
Play On: Boston Celtics -3.5.
The Celtics are showing some great value here as a mere 3.5-point home favorite against the Lakers. Boston may be just 2-8 over their last 10 games, but that’s largely due to a brutal schedule. Their 8 losses during this stretch have come against the likes of the Thunder, Cavaliers, Suns, Grizzlies, Trail Blazers, Bulls, Spurs and Hawks. They took care of the likes of the 76ers (101-90) and Pistons (109-102) and I expect them do the same against a bad Lakers team.
This is also a horrible spot for LA, who will be playing their 3rd straight road game in the span of just 4 days. While the Celtics will also being playing in a 3-in-4 scenario, this will be their second straight game at home. I look for Boston to dictate the tempo and take advantage of a Lakers team that relies too much on Kobe Bryant chucking up shots.
Key Trend – Lakers are just 17-31 (35%) ATS over the last 3 seasons against teams who average 23 or more assists/game and have lost these contests by an average of 9.6 ppg. BET THE CELTICS -3.5!
