Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics Preview & Picks

Washington are tipped to cover as a massive underdog.

Boston are the better team and should win, but they have been having issues covering the spread, especially double digit spreads.

  • Boston Celtics are 3-7-0 ATS in their last 10 games
  • Boston Celtics are 1-4-0 ATS in their last 5 games as a double digist favorite
  • The Under has cashed in 9 of Boston's last 13 games
  • The Under has hit in 8 of Washington's last 9 games

Head To Head

  • Boston Celtics lead the all-time series 212-129
  • Boston Celtics won 126-107 when the two teams last met on October 30

Washington Wizards Form

Washington head to Boston in miserable form, having lost four straight games and 10 of the last 12.

In fact, the Wizards have managed just four victories since Christmas and that has left them with a 9-41 record.

They went on a couple of six-game losing skids in January, but they did look set to finish the month on a positive note when they won 118-104 in Detroit and 118-113 at San Antonio.

Washington failed to keep that run going, losing 125-109 when they returned home to face the LA Clippers on January 31.

The Wizards then lost their first three games of February, losing 110-102 to Miami, 140-112 to Phoenix and 114-106 to Cleveland.

Boston Celtics Form

Boston come into this game in solid form, having now won 10 of their last 13 games to reach 39-12.

The Celtics rebounded from a loss in Milwaukee by sandwiching a 105-96 win in Toronto with home wins against Houston, 145-113, and San Antonio, 117-98.

They then bounced back from a 102-100 defeat to Denver by heading out on the road to beat Houston 116-107, Dallas 119-110 and Miami 14-110.

Boston failed to make it four-in-a-row as they lost 115-96 at home to the LA Clippers, but they again issued an immediate response to a loss by beating New Orleans 118-112 and Indiana 129-124.

The Celtics then suffered a 114-105 defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers, only to hit back with a 131-91 blowout of Memphis and a 125-117 success against Atlanta.

Verdict

Boston should win this one, but they have had issues covering the spread recently so we are taking Washington and the points.
