The Celtics are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 12-3-1 in Celtics last 16 road games and 4-0 in Celtics last 4 overall. The under is 16-5-1 in Clippers last 22 home games. The over is 4-0 in Clippers last 4 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles and 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings.

The Boston Celtics are going to be favored for obvious reasons, and it's hard to bet against them. However, the Los Angeles Clippers are as healthy as they've been all year, as Powell is the only person on the injury list. At home and healthy, this feels like a spot for the Clippers to kind of flex their muscle and show what they're capable of. A statement game. On paper, the Clippers are title contenders. I expect them to show some of that here. I'll grab the points.
