The Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics will renew their rivalry on Thursday night as those two teams take to the hardwood for some NBA betting action at TD Garden.
The Lakers are 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS over their past three games against the Celtics, although the teams will be meeting for the first time this season on Thursday night. The UNDER has paid out for totals bettors in seven of their last 10 matchups.
Pau Gasol is out for the struggling Lakers as he tore plantar fascia on his foot and is out for 6-8 weeks. Boston has their own injury problem in Rajon Rondo's absence.
Boston battles the Lakers, currently with a 23-26 mark (20-29 ATS). The OVER/UNDER records, important for totals bettors, are 23-24-1 for the Celtics and 24-24-1 for the Lakers. (Note: follow us on Twitter for line updates and injuries news).
