Could UNDER Be The Bet in BOS, CLE?

Two top 10 offenses clash when the Boston Celtics travel to the C-Town to play the Cleveland Cavaliers Saturday. Though you would expect a high scoring affair between these two teams, the UNDER has hit in eight of their past nine meetings. Only twice in those nine games did the Celtics and Cavs combine for more than 200 points.

Shark Bites
  • The Celtics are 5-9-1 ATS in their past 15 road games.
  • The UNDER is 6-2 in the Cavaliers past eight games.
  • The Cavaliers are 4-2 ATS in their past six against the Celtics.

The Celtics enter Saturday’s affair riding a five-game winning streak in which they have averaged 106.8 points per game. Isaiah Thomas is coming off his first back-to-back 30-point games of the season, as the diminutive point guard has averaged 31 points while shooting 57.5 percent in that span.

Despite a solid 7-1 SU record in their past eight games at the Quicken Loans Arena, they are just 4-4 ATS for bettors in that span. The Cavs have been faves in each of those eight games while facing an average closing spread of -10.5. Cleveland went to a smaller lineup in their last outing and moved LeBron James to power forward, a role that he relished with James notching 19 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists.
