Prediction

Clippers 110, Celtics 108

Moneyline (ML)

The CLIPPERS (+105) are slight moneyline underdogs in Boston. The Clippers have been a good road team this season, going 15-12 away from home. They’ve also performed well in Boston of late, winning five of their last six games at TD Garden. Take Los Angeles to win this final contest ahead of the All-Star break.

Line/Against the Spread(ATS)

The CLIPPERS (+1.5, -106) are being spotted less than a basket. While both teams are on a bit of a hot streak against the spread and straight up, it’s notable that the Celtics have failed to cover the spread against the Clippers in four of their last five head-to-head meetings. While it is hard not to take the Celtics at home as a favorite, expect the Clippers defense to shut down Boston and take home the W.

Over/Under(O/U)

The projected total is set at 228.5 points, which feels a bit too high. While both offenses are averaging over 112 points per game this season, both teams allow fewer than 110 PPG. This matchup will feature two of the league’s best defenses, and that should help the UNDER 228.5 (-106) to hit.
