The over is 4-1 in Celtics last 5 games as an underdog. The over is 4-1 in Warriors last 5 overall. The Celtics are 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Golden State and 12-3-2 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
The Boston Celtics are attractive in the underdog role given how consistent they are and the fact they've covered 21 of their last 25 road games. I wouldn't talk you off the ledge if leaning toward the Celtics here. However, this is pretty much a must win game for the Warriors if they're going to win this series, and they're an experienced championship roster that usually finds a way. We also can't ignore the Warriors had a comfortable lead in game 1 entering the fourth quarter, it was just a complete meltdown at all ends. It's not like the Celtics steamrolled the Warriors from the opening tip. I expect a bounce back showing from the home team. Give me the Warriors and the reasonable chalk.
