Wizards Aim for 14th Straight Home Win Against Celtics

Only two weeks after participating in a rough affair that spilled into the hallway between the locker-rooms, the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards will once again collide on Tuesday evening in the nation’s capital. Oddsmakers initially set the line for the game at a pick’em with a total of 217.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in three of the Celtics' last four games on the road against the Wizards.
  • The Wizards are 7-2 SU and ATS in their last nine games as home underdogs.
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Celtics' last 13 games as favorite.

Washington hasn’t looked like a contender in the Eastern Conference for the better part of the last two years, but the Wiz are on their way up now. They’ve won eight of their last 10 games and a fantastic 13 straight at home – the fourth-longest run in franchise history.

If the Celts are going to end that streak, they’ll need to tighten up a defense that’s sprung a leak lately. Boston has given up an average of 112.5 points in its last six games since Avery Bradley went down with an Achilles injury. Bradley is expected to remain sidelined through the rest of the week.

Home sides are dominating this series at the betting window, as visiting teams have gone a measly 1-5-1 ATS in the last seven renewals between the Wizards and Celtics.
