10.11.16 Washington Boston 118 : 93

The Trends-

  • Wizards are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Boston.
  • Wizards are 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
  • Total Points Over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Boston.

Washington led by as much as 16 in Game 1 before falling flat on their ass and going down by 12.

The Celtics dominated from beyond the arc tying a franchise record 19-treys, and if the Wizards are to walk away with a win tonight, some D at the perimeter is a must.

Morris will return for the Wizards after an early exit in Game 1 with an ankle injury after stepping on Al Horfords foot.

Again this is a tough one, but our best bet will be the overs, with a narrow Celtics win, wouldn’t be surprised with a Wizards upset though.

The Trends-

  • Jazz are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Golden State.
  • Total Points Under is 13-3-1 in the last 17 meetings in Golden State.
  • Total Points Under is 23-7-2 in the last 32 meetings.

The Warriors will be without Coach Kerr, and the Jazz may be missing Favors with a sore back. A full lineup at any given moment seems impossible or Utah, however despite the setbacks they seem happy enough with minimal break –

“We prefer to keep playing,” Jazz veteran Joe Johnson said. “We have a rhythm, and we’re enjoying the moment.”

The Jazz will try and slow this one right down, so the Unders are a good pick here, with a Warriors win not worth the outlay @1.07. We’d prefer the line for the Jazz, but we’re not going to take it.
