Home Court Trend Working in Celtics Favor

Jeff Teague Jae Crowder

The Boston-Atlanta first-round series has been one of the most exciting matchups in the NBA postseason so far, but the Celtics’ playoff dreams are on the line ahead of Thursday night’s Game 6 in Beantown. Home court has been massive in this series, as no road team has won yet through five games.

Shark Bites
  • The Hawks are 1-3 SU and ATS in their last four games with one day off between games.
  • The Celtics are 2-11 SU and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games as underdogs.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Celtics' last 15 games with one day off between games.

Just how long has it been since Atlanta ousted Boston in the playoffs? It hasn’t happened in 58 years. A date with the Cleveland Cavaliers awaits the victor.

The Hawks halted a brief two-game run by the C’s in Game 5 by walloping them 110-83 in Georgia. The Hawks scored 19 points in the first 18 minutes but lit up the Celtics for 70 in the next 18 minutes en route to the triumph.

The UNDER, which opened at 197, has gone 4-1 in the series so far. The UNDER is 5-2 in Atlanta’s last seven with a closing total of 197 or less.

Celtics bettors would be wise to keep an eye on Isaiah Thomas. Thomas re-aggravated a sprained left ankle in Tuesday’s fourth quarter, but insists he’ll play “no matter what.” He will likely be far from 100 percent, however, we’ve seen him overcome adversity and step up to the plate in a big way before.

This Week In Sports Betting

If you’ve been betting the OVER on the regular during the NBA playoffs, chances are your bankroll is more banged up than the L.A. Clippers’ roster right now. 

As of Wednesday, the OVER/UNDER is 10-24-1 this postseason for a lucrative winning percentage of 68.6 for the UNDER. 

Does that mean you should go off carting wheelbarrows of money to your local sportsbook and start shoveling cash on NBA UNDERs? Probably not.

When it comes to season-long and postseason-long trends, things tend to even out over time. Oddsmakers are kind of amazing that way. 


Hornets Have Lost 16 of 17 in Miami

Winning on the road in the postseason has not exactly been in the Charlotte Hornets’ DNA. The last time the Hornets won on the road, Dwayne Wade was in college. After storming back into the series thanks to two-straight victories in North Carolina, the Hornets will be seeking to turn that ship around tonight when action shifts back to South Beach - a place they've won just once in their last 17 trips there.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Hornets' last nine games.
  • The Hornets are 1-16 SU in their last 17 games on the road against the Heat.
  • The Hornets are 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games as an underdog of 5.5 or less.

Both of Miami’s wins came by double-digit margins at home, but the veteran Heat have looked older and slower than the upstart Hornets in the last two contests. Wade, Luol Deng and Joe Johnson all logged heavy minutes in Game 4, with the 30-somethings faded down the stretch in Monday’s 89-85 defeat.

Hornets point guard Kemba Walker is a big reason for his team’s resurgence. Walker scored 19 of his playoff career-high 34 points in the second half of Game 4 and put up each of Charlotte’s 11 points in an 11-5 run that put the boys from Buzz City up 87-80 with 3:10 left in the fourth quarter.

History is working in the Heat’s favor. Miami is 13-2 SU in its last 15 postsaeson home games, with both losses coming to the San Antonio Spurs in the 2014 NBA Finals.

Do the Wounded Clippers Stand a Chance?

How the mighty have fallen. The Los Angeles Clippers, a team that’s been plagued by bad luck in the playoffs the last few years, received the worst news possible after a Game 4 first-round loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. The Clips lost both of their All-Stars in Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to injuries and will be forced to carry on with a depleted lineup with the series tied at two games apiece.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Trail Blazers' last six games with a closing total of 197.5 or more.
  • The visiting team is 0-5 SU in its last five games in this matchup.
  • The Clippers were 3-5 SU and ATS, and 7-1 OU without Chris Paul this season.

Just how rough are things for L.A. right now? Here’s their starting lineup: Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick, Jeff Green, Luc Mbah A Moute and DeAndre Jordan. The franchise has never advanced past the second round, and it’s going to be extremely tough to buck that trend as a likely date with the Golden State Warriors awaits the winner of this series.

Paul had surgery to repair a hand fracture he sustained in the third quarter of Monday’s 94-84 setback, while Griffin has been ruled out for the remainder of the playoffs after aggravating his left quadriceps tendon.

The good new for Clippers backers is the Blazers have not been successful after covering in their previous game. In Portland’s last 11 after an ATS win, Damian Lillard and company are 3-8 ATS.

UNDER Trending in HOU-GS Game 5

The story of the NBA playoffs so far has been a rash of injuries to star players, and that wave has hit the Bay Area. The Golden State Warriors lost their phenomenal point guard Stephen Curry to a grade 1 sprain of the MCL on his right knee, an ailment that will sideline him for an estimated two weeks. His team can close out their first-round series with the Houston Rockets with a win on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Warriors' last 11 games after a win.
  • The Rockets are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Rockets' last eight games on the road.

The Rockets have lost five-straight playoff games at Oracle Arena. Don’t fault Rockets superstar James Harden for his team’s poor performance, though. Harden is averaging 25.5 points on 37.7 percent shooting in the series with 30 assists of the last three games.

Dwight Howard has double-doubles in all four games with averages of 14.5 points and 12.3 rebounds. He’s also shooting 65.7 percent, yet the Rockets haven’t been able to give him more than 10 shots in the series.

When fully rested, the Warriors are a rock-solid. Golden State is 9-2 SU in their last 11 games with two days off between contests. The Warriors, who opened as 9-point favorites, are also 6-1 ATS when favored by nine points or less.
