The Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards collide at the Capital One Arena on Tuesday night.

The Boston Celtics have been in great form as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after making light work of the Spurs in a 137-93 home win on Sunday. Jaylen Brown led the team with 41 points, 13 rebounds and three assists, Malcolm Brogdon added 20 points and nine assists off the bench while Derrick White chipped in with 19 points on seven of 11 shooting. As a team, the Celtics shot a healthy 57 percent from the field and 18 of 44 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest with 38 points in the second quarter, before they exploded for 41 points in the fourth quarter to make it a complete blowout.

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in a slump as they’ve lost eight of their last 10 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting beaten by the Raptors in a 114-104 road loss on Sunday. Kristaps Porzingis led the team with 26 points on nine of 17 shooting, Corey Kispert added 19 points while Deni Avdija chipped in with 15 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. As a team, the Wizards shot 44 percent from the field and 16 of 36 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and had to work hard to reduce a 21-point deficit to just three points, before they went cold and scored just 20 points in the fourth quarter to allow the Raptors off the hook in the end.

Looking at the betting trends, the Celtics are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Wizards are 0-5 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games overall.

Head to head, the under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings overall and the Celtics are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings overall.

The Celtics are coming into this one with the same lineup, while the Wizards are still missing Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma with Monte Morris listed as questionable. The Celtics have quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league, they are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games and 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings overall.
