The Boston Celtics invade the Capital One Arena to take on the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.

The Boston Celtics have been in rough shape as they’ve lost three of their first five games and they will be looking for revenge in this one after falling to the Wizards in a 116-107 home loss on Wednesday. Jayson Tatum led the team with 23 points on nine of 22 shooting, Dennis Schroder added 22 points with six assists off the bench, Al Horford added 16 points with 11 rebounds and four assists while Jaylen Brown and Robert Williams each scored 13 points. As a team, the Celtics shot 43 percent from the field and 10 of 29 from the 3-point line fought hard to rally back from a 15-point deficit, only to go ice-cold when it mattered most as they scored just 21 points in the fourth quarter to allow the Wizards to steal the game late.

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in great form so far as they’ve won four of their first five games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after beating the Hawks in a 122-111 home win on Thursday. Bradley Beal led the team with 27 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, Montrezl Harrell racked up 25 points with 13 rebounds and five assists while Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope each scored 21 points. As a team, the Wizards shot 46 percent from the field and 13 of 34 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 64 points in the first half and they just didn’t let off as they poured in another 36 points in the third quarter to lead by as many as 20 points.

Looking at the betting trends, the Celtics are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as an underdog, 7-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on two days’ rest and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Wizards are 6-2 ATS in their last eight home games, 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games against a team with a losing record and 22-10 ATS in their last 32 games following a win.

Head to head, under is 6-0 in the last six meetings overall and the Celtics are 1-5-1 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.

The Celtics have really been struggling for consistency this season, but they are coming into this one as the more rested team as they haven’t played since Wednesday in their home loss to the Wizards. However, the Wizards have started to emerge as one of the danger teams in the Eastern Conference, especially now that they’re coming into this one off a win over the Hawks. The Celtics are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on two days’ rest and they will have their eyes set on revenge in this one, but they are just 1-5-1 ATS in the last seven meetings overall, so I’m sticking with the Wizards in this one.
