Spread: Boston Celtics -7
Boston Celtics have a 41-27 record (34-33-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 5th place of the East. In their last game they saw a three-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Clippers with a 115-140 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Kyrie Irving with 23.4 ppg, adding 4.9 boards and a team high 7 dimes per game. He is followed by Jayson Tatum with 16.1 ppg and 6.2 boards per game.
Sacramento Kings have a 33-33 record (38-27-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the West. They have lost two of their last three matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Wizards with a 115-121 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 20.9 ppg, adding 5.2 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.5 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.2 dimes per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Celtics won on the road with a 109-111 score. Celtics have a 24-10 home record, while the Kings are 13-19 on the road. Kings are better offensively, scoring 113.7 ppg to Celtics’ 112.3 ppg, while Celtics are better defensively, allowing 107.1 ppg to Kings’ 114.8. Both teams have almost identical field goal percentage (46.5% to 46.2%), while Kings have a better 3-point percentage (37.5% to 36.5%). Celtics are better both in dimes made (26.4 to 25.5) and in turnovers committed (12.7 to 13.4), while Kings are better in boards grabbed (45.4 to 44.5). Celtics are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -7 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home victory.
