The Celtics are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss. The Suns are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 Friday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The under is 8-3-1 in Celtics last 12 road games. The under is 4-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The Celtics are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Phoenix and 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Boston Celtics pick and choose when to show up, and they've played their best ball over the last week and a half. The Phoenix Suns are still without their best player, but they do win at home by an average of 7.6 points, and they're a well rested team entering this contest. We're not being asked to lay a lot. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Suns at home.
