Wizards Haven’t Covered in Their Last Nine Trips to TD Garden

The Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics have become bitter rivals over the previous few seasons, and a new chapter in the rivalry will be written in Beantown on Christmas Day.

Xbet opened the Wizards as 4.5-point road underdogs with a total of 206.5.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 5-1 in the Wizards’ last six road games.
  • The favorite is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings between the Wizards and Celtics.
  • The OVER is 4-0 in the last four meetings between the Wizards and Celtics in Boston.

The Wizards have been a rocky wager of late, as Washington suffered a 119-84 blowout loss to the lowly Brooklyn Nets on Friday before bouncing back at home vs the Orlando Magic in the form of a 130-103 victory. The teams split four games in the regular season a year ago, including one that featured plenty of near fights and a shouting match in the back of TD Garden. Boston edged Washington in the Eastern Conference semifinals in the 2016-17 postseason.

Boston point guard Kyrie Irving is the newcomer to this rivalry, and it’s safe to say the star point guard has felt right at home in his new surroundings. Irving has made 23 of 48 three-pointers in the last five games and is averaging 28.5 points over his past 11 outings. Big man Al Horford has also fared well of late, evidenced by the center shooting 58.6 percent at home this season.

The Wizards have been downright terrible when it comes to covering the spread in Boston. In Washington’s last nine trips to Massachusetts, the Wizards are 0-9 ATS.
