The defending NBA champions are on a 4-0 SU/ATS run and are playing top tier basketball and must be respected on a short line as favorites. I have not been impressed with the Celtics in the restart or overall this season and feel confident fading them in this spot play.
Nurse is 17-6 ATS in road games versus good 3 point shooting teams - making 36% or more of their attempts as the coach of TORONTO.
NBA Underdogs (BOSTON) - after going over the total by more than 30 points in their previous game, a good team (60% to 75%) playing a team with a winning record are 8-33 ATS L/5 seasons for a 81% go against conversion rate.
NBA teams where the line is +3 to -3 (BOSTON) - very good team - outscoring their opponents by 6+ points/game, after allowing 105 points or more 3 straight games are 10-35 ATS L/24 seasons for a go against 78% converison rate.
