NBA: Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards
- Title : NBA: Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards
I think the Wizards have a good chance of a break in this game. The Celtics have had 3 hard away games in the previous 5 days, so I don’t expect them to be at their maximum in this game. With Beal and Westbrook’s standard good games and a slightly better game in defence, I think that the guests’ victory in this match is possible.
These teams met three times last season, with Washington winning twice.
These two teams are scoring a huge amount of points so the defenses are going to need to step up. Let’s deep dive into these teams and figure out where we are placing our wagers in this matchup.
We already know how these defenses are and the offenses are clicking to begin the season. Washington is scoring 120.8 points on 47.8 percent from the floor while Boston is averaging 111.7 points per game on 48 percent shooting. The over has hit in eight of the last 11 times between these two teams. Go with the OVER in this game and watch the points fly.
Bradley Beal has been incredible and should be able to lead the Wizards. Boston is a strong team but they won’t be able to cover the spread. Washington is undefeated ATS in their last five road games while Boston struggles following a ATS win. The Celtics should be able to win the game but the Wizards should cover the spread as an underdog here.
Washington: 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games
Boston: 2-7 in their last 9 games following a win
