Celtics are One of the Hottest Bets in the Association Right Now

The Boston Celtics are clinging to the top spot in the Eastern Conference, and some success on a three-game homestand would go a long way with the all-star break approaching. The C’s kick things off at TD Garden on Friday against Victor Oladipo and the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers have performed poorly vs the Celtics of late, going 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five against Boston.

Xbet opened the Celtics as 4-point home favorites with a total of 204.5.

  • The Celtics are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games at home after consecutive road games.
  • The Pacers are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games on the road.
  • The Pacers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games on the road after consecutive home games.

Thanks to a pair of free throws from Kyrie Irving in the final seconds of regulation, the Celtics forced overtime and scored seven points in the extra frame to top the Wizards 110-104 and maintain a one-game lead over Toronto for the first seed in the conference. The Celtics swept a three-game homestand last week and have gone 5-1 SU in their last six games.

The Pacers fell to Washington 111-102 at home on Monday but were given some extra rest on Wednesday when their visit to New Orleans was postponed due to a leaky roof at the Smoothie King Center. As a result of the postponement, Indiana will now play a total of four games in 17 days. Oladipo missed Monday’s setback with an illness but is set to return to the lineup tonight.

Boston is one of the hottest spread bets in the Association right now. In the Celtics’ last eight games, they’ve gone 7-1 ATS.
