Against the Spread Pick
Things are not going well in Detroit this season. They lost on Monday and emphasize how bad things have gotten in Motown they were not even favoured against a bad New Orleans team on Monday. Blake Griffin is out and even when he has been in the lineup he has not made much of a difference to the results. Boston is the better team and they are playing some really good ball right now. I am not sure there is a better team than the Celtics on the perimeter and they can experiment with lots of different lineup. They should not have to work too hard in this spot as there is just too much of a talent imbalance. Take the Celtics at home.
Over Under Pick
The Celtics tend to play more under than overs overall but that number is even at home. Neither team plays in much of a hurry either so even though the Celtics have way more options for scoring I can see this one going under. The C’s often look sharpest in the 4th to salt the game away but prior to that this game struggles for flow. take the under.
