Phoenix Suns at Boston Celtics Vegas Odds & NBA Picks
The Boston Celtics, who saw their winning streak snapped at eight games in a loss to Detroit on Sunday, will look to get back into the winner’s circle but they must be wary as they are set to resume hostilities with the Phoenix Suns, who are in the midst of a three-game winning streak. The two inter-conference belligerents are scheduled to square off in a matchup set to be broadcasted on the NBATV network Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. ET and live from the TD Garden in Boston, MA.
Not only did the Suns won three in a row for the first time since March of 2017, they have done it in grand fashion winning in double-digit in two of the tilts and by eight points over the Timberwolves as a 7-point-underdog. However, they have struggled historically against the Celtics losing seven of their last eight contests while going 0-5 against the numbers in their last 5 games against Boston. They enter this affair as a 11.5-point road underdog, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with total sitting at 219 points.
