Celtics, Blazers are Soaring OVER Totals

The Boston Celtics haven’t lost at TD Garden in nearly two months and will put that stellar record on the line Wednesday when the streaking Portland Trail Blazers head to town. While the spread will likely draw more action in this game, OVER bettors will be paying close attention as well. The OVER is 7-2 in Portland’s last nine while paying out in seven of Boston’s previous nine. Oddsmakers opened the total for the affair at 219.

Shark Bites
  • The Celtics are 10-1 SU and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite of 4.5 or more.
  • The Trail Blazers are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games against the Celtics.
  • The Celtics are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as favorites.

Just how good have the Blazers been as of late? They’re 14-2 SU since January 23 and haven’t lost away from Oregon since January 18. Portland was the best bet in the Association in February at 8-3 ATS, due largely in part to the play of the dynamic backcourt pairing of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum.

Lillard has posted at least 30 points in eight of his last nine games, including a career-high 51 against the league-leading Golden State Warriors on February 19. One area the Blazers have struggled in is producing in the second portion of back-to-back sets. Portland, who hammered New York 104-85 yesterday, will try for a better result tonight.

Boston is averaging 111.4 points since January 22 – third most in the league – while Portland has notched 112.8 since February 8. The total is slowly coming down in this game, so if you’re thinking of placing a wager on the OVER you may be better off waiting until closer to game time to get the best number.
