Jazz are Suddenly Ice-Cold ATS

Isaiah Thomas Gordon Hayward

The Boston Celtics are a perfect example of a team that doesn’t need a superstar to excel. A roster that features a plethora of role players, the Celts are doing a great job of sharing the ball and spreading the scoring around. The Utah Jazz will try and stop the streaking Eastern Conference club Monday evening, but trends are favoring Boston in this one. Boston, who opened as 6-point chalk, is 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS in its last eight when tabbed as faves of six or more. Utah has gone a paltry 1-6 ATS in its last seven games.

Shark Bites
  • The Jazz are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games against the Celtics.
  • The Celtics are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Jazz's last eight games on the road.

The Jazz dominated the Celtics in the form of an 18-point victory in the first game back after the All-Star break, which prompted C’s head coach Brad Stevens to say Utah “hit us in the mouth.” The squads have gone in different directions since, however, as Boston has responded with three wins in four games while Utah has looked awful in its last two appearances.

Isaiah Thomas and company have averaged 118.3 points in their last three, and they’ve been especially dominant at home. The Celtics can extend their home winning streak to 11 games with a win tonight. Since January 12, they rank just behind the high-flying Golden State Warriors when it comes to putting points on the board, averaging 112.2 during that span.

Oddsmakers opened the total for the affair at 202.5, which will appeal to OVER backers. In Boston’s previous seven when facing a closing total of 202.5 or more, the OVER is 6-1.
