Kings Haven’t Won in Boston Since 2007

The Boston Celtics can be one of the most frustrating bets in the NBA because they have all the talent in the world but the team chemistry can be foul. But they seem to be getting along now after a successful road swing where they went 3-1 SU and ATS and will face one of those teams they beat in the Sacramento Kings. The Kings have been feisty all season but started off their East Coast road trip with a six-point loss to the Wizards and have lost 10 consecutive games at TD Garden.

The Celtics opened as 7-point favorites with a total of 226.

My Best Bet for Kings vs Celtics

Celtics -7

I love how the Kings play but I like the Celtics at home more. They seem to have sung kumbaya and are getting along this week and are expected to have Jayson Tatum back in the lineup, which should give them a boost offensively. Boston has owned this matchup and should be fully motivated to try to climb up in the East standings so look for the Celtics to make a statement with the win tonight.
