The Celtics are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Rockets are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 home games and 16-35 ATS in their last 51 games overall. The over is 7-3 in Celtics last 10 overall. The under is 4-1 in Rockets last 5 overall. The under is 12-3 in the last 15 meetings in Houston and 23-9 in the last 32 meetings.

The Boston Celtics have underachieved up to this point and they're a brutal 6-14 against the spread on the road. However, the Houston Rockets have been fade material pretty much all season, as they haven't won a game in over a month and they're losing their last five games by an average of 22.6 points while shooting 37.8 percent from the field. The Rockets are a complete mess at both ends of the floor and players are asking out. The Rockets are also 3-12 against the spread at home. Big number, but it's Celtics or pass for me.
