Confines of TD Garden Haven’t Been Friendly to Celtics of Late

Losers of eight of their last 14, the all-star break couldn’t come soon enough for the Boston Celtics. Before they can get there, the floundering C’s must welcome the Los Angeles Clippers to town on Wednesday in the conclusion of a three-game homestand. Home-court advantage has been massive in this series, as visiting clubs are 1-4 SU in the last five meetings between Boston and Los Angeles.

MyBookie opened the Clippers as 4.5-point road underdogs with a total of 208.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Clippers are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games after a win.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Clippers’ last six games on the East Coast.
  • The Celtics are 10-4 SU and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games after consecutive losses.

The Celtics are coming off an embarrassing 22-point loss to archrival Cleveland before Paul Pierce’s jersey retirement ceremony and have fallen out of first place in the Eastern Conference as a result. Boston’s youth movement, which has been spearheaded by Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, has faltered of late. Tatum’s three-point percentage has dropped in every month of the season, from 50 percent in October to 33.3 percent in February.

The Clippers are on the opposite side of the fence right now thanks to wins in six of their last eight and 18 of 26 overall to climb to ninth place in the Western Conference, only a half-game behind New Orleans for the eighth and final playoff spot. L.A. has been getting contributions from pretty much everyone, as seven players scored in double figures in a 114-101 win over Brooklyn on Monday. As a team, the Clips shot 56.5 percent from the floor.

When the Clips travel to Beantown, the Celtics simply haven’t been a solid wager at the betting window. In the Clippers’ last eight games at TD Garden, they’re 6-2 ATS.

The visiting Los Angeles Clippers opened this morning as 5.5-point underdogs in this one at most sportsbooks tracked at OddsShark (including Bovada), while the total was hovering around 212 at BetOnline and other betting odds shops.
