Ricky's 10* play on Boston.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Celtics are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
- The Celtics are 37-18-1 ATS in their last 56 playoff games as a favorite.
- The Celtics are 5-1 straight up in the last six head to head meetings.
Verdict: The Celtics lead the NBA in scoring defense in the playoffs.
