Spread: Boston Celtics -2
Boston Celtics have a 43-30 record (35-37-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 5th place of the East. They have three consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Hornets with a 117-124 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Kyrie Irving with 24 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and a team high 7 dimes per game. He is followed by Jayson Tatum with 15.9 ppg and 6.2 boards per game.
San Antonio Spurs have a 42-31 record (40-31-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 8th place of the West. They have back-to-back losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Rockets with a 105-111 score. They are led in scoring by DeMar DeRozan with 21.5 ppg, adding 6.3 boards and a team high 6.1 dimes per game. He is followed by LaMarcus Aldridge with 21 ppg and a team high 8.9 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Spurs won at home with a 120-111 score. Celtics have a 26-11 home record, while the Spurs are 13-23 on the road. Celtics are better both offensively, scoring 112.8 ppg to Spurs’ 111.7 and defensively, allowing 107.9 ppg to Spurs’ 110.3. Spurs have better percentages both in field goals (47.8% to 46.5%) and in 3-pointers (39.7% to 36.5%). Both teams are almost equal in boards grabbed (44.6 to 44.5), while Celtics are better in dimes made (26.5 to 24.5), while Spurs are better in turnovers committed (11.8 to 12.6). Spurs have been very ineffective on the road and Vegas odds give the Celtics a -2 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home win.
