The Boston Celtics are allowing 36.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.8 rebounds per game.
The San Antonio Spurs look for a win after splitting their last eight games.

DeMar DeRozan is averaging 20.1 points and 5.3 rebounds while Dejounte Murray is averaging 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds.

The Celtics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 35-13-3 ATS in their last 51 Wednesday games. The Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The over is 8-1 in Celtics last 9 Wednesday games. The under is 6-2 in Spurs last 8 overall. The Celtics are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Boston Celtics are the better team here and they get a major boost with Tatum back in the lineup, but these are the spots where we've mad a lot of money on the Spurs since the NBA bubble. The San Antonio Spurs have covered 11 of their last 16 games as an underdog and are a profitable 10-7 against the spread on the season overall. The Spurs are also winning their last five games by an average of 5.2 points. I'll take the free bucket with the home team.
