Sizzling Celtics Looking to Keep Historic Betting Run Alive vs Heat

At 15-2-1 ATS, the Boston Celtics are off to the best betting start in NBA history through 18 games and are riding a ridiculous 16-game winning streak ahead of Wednesday’s road tilt with the Miami Heat.

MyBookie opened the Celtics as 3.5-point road underdogs with a total of 196.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Heat are 7-2 SU and ATS in their last nine games after losing as a favorite.
  • The Celtics are 12-1 ATS in their last 13 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Celtics’ last 11 games with a closing total of 196.5 or less.

Yesterday I profiled the C’s historic hot start, which you can read here. Boston has kept its bettors on their heels lately as the squad has rallied from double-digit deficits in its last three contests. Brad Stevens’ club trailed by 13 with less than eight minutes to go on Monday before mounting a major comeback in the form of a 110-102 overtime victory over the Dallas Mavericks while covering the -7 spread in the process.

Miami has dropped three of its last four heading into this one in the wake of a crushing 120-95 home setback to the Indiana Pacers on Sunday where they allowed the Pacers to shoot 60 percent from the field. Leading scorer Goran Dragic is averaging just seven points over the past two games while missing 13 of 19 shots from the floor, while backcourt mate Dion Waiters is coming off a 0-for-10 shooting performance.

To say the Celtics have dominated this series of late would be a major understatement, as Boston is a perfect 8-0 SU in the last eight meetings between the Eastern Conference foes. In that span, the Celts have gone 6-2 ATS.
