Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Putting up historic numbers is nothing new for the Boston Celtics this season, but the way they’ve looked in these 5 games since the All-Star break is something special. They’re beating teams by an average of 26.2 points, Sunday’s 52-point win over Golden State was their 3rd 50+ point victory of the season which is most any team has ever had in a single season. The game was pretty much decided after the first quarter when the Cs led by 22 points, so the likes of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and others got enough rest ahead of tonight’s game at Cleveland. To top it all off, Boston wasn’t even at full strength in that game as Kristaps Porzingis sat out with a quad issue. This team has won 11 straight and 8 in a row on the road, against Cleveland they are 14-6 SU in the last 20 meetings.

The Cavs have lost both meetings to Boston this season, they’re in a difficult spot here following an unexpected 107-98 home loss to the Knicks. I say unexpected because early in the game New York lost it’s best player Jalen Brunson to an injury, but despite that the Cavs fell flat and couldn’t do much. Donovan Mitchell missed his 2nd straight game, he is out indefinitely with a knee problem. Alongside him the Cavs won’t be able to count on Max Strus, while Caris LeVert and Isaac Okoro are questionable. The only bright spot for Cleveland here is the fact that they’re playing at home where they’ve gone 20-11 SU this season, but as underdogs they have just 8 wins in 18 games. A drop in form has been noticeable over the last 9 games, they’ve covered just once during that stretch.

Boston Celtics Point Spread Prediction

Boston Celtics -7.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

There’s really not many (if any) reasons to not consider Boston here. They’ve flat out dominated opponents since the break and are on a 11-game win streak. Cleveland has way too many injury concerns to keep this game close. I’ll take the Celtics once again to cover.

Celtics vs Cavaliers Total Points Prediction: Over 218.5

Over 218.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

During the 5-game post All-Star weekend win streak the Celtics are averaging 132.2 points per 100 possessions per game, so it’s no wonder opponents are having a difficult time staying in games with them. Tonight’s projected total is a rather modest one at just 218.5 points, a number that has easily been surpassed in the two meetings between the Celtics and Cavs this season. Boston has successfully cashed on the over 13 times in 19 games vs Central Division opponents, they’ve also gone back-to-back games with at least 138 points scored. Granted, without Donovan Mitchell it could be a struggle to score for the Cavs, but I think tonight’s number is way too low considering the way Boston has been scoring lately. Over the last 5 games these two teams are playing a rather similar style in terms of pace averaging 96.9 and 96.6 possessions per game, ranking just around the league average this season. If the Celtics once again score 120 points which I feel is realistic, we only need the Cavs to get to 100 which shouldn’t be an issue. I’ll go with the over.
