Sacramento Kings vs Boston Celtics: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

With just 6 wins in 13 games when playing on no rest, the Sacramento Kings are looking to bounce back following last night’s defeat in New York as they take on the Boston Celtics. Boston routed them 144-119 back in December when the two teams met for the first time this season, that was the 5th game in a row the Celtics have won in head-to-head meetings. It just hasn’t been a pleasant experienced for Sacramento playing at TD Garden, they’ve recorded just 1 win in their last 15 visits. With Malik Monk and Kevin Huerter out injured, they’re 10-point underdogs here and ESPN’s matchup predictor is giving them just a 5.2% of a chance to win tonight’s game.

The Celtics have a couple of injury worries of their own with Derrick White and Jaylen Brown both questionable here, but I don’t think that should hinder the Cs here. They’ve won 3 straight games, all 3 by double digits against OKC, Charlotte and New Orleans. One more win gives them home court advantage throughout the postseason, so I think they’ll be motivated to get the job done here. Jayson Tatum would also benefit in the MVP race if his team secured the best record, he’s averaging 27.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per game this season. Boston is on an 11-game home win streak and has covered the spread in 6 straight games vs Western Conference opponents. They also have the NBA’s best Net Rating over the last 15 games at +15.1 points.

Boston Celtics Point Spread Prediction

Celtics -9.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Anything but a convincing Celtics win would be a major surprise here. Sacramento just doesn’t have the depth without Monk and Huerter, we just saw them get demolished by a injury riddled Knicks team. I’m taking Boston to win by double-digits here.

Sacramento Kings vs Boston Celtics Total Points Prediction: Over 225.5

Over 225.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Backing the over is a must here in my opinion. The 3 most recent meetings between the Kings and Celtics have averaged 243.2 points per game and the over has cashed on 2 occasions. Boston is shooting an astonishing 52.8% from the field in those 3 games, the Kings defense just isn’t equipped to handle an elite offense like the Celtics are. Boston has ranked number one in offensive efficiency for the majority of 2024. They’re averaging 127.1 points per game in their last 15 games, that’s almost 8 points better than the 2nd best team. Sacramento ranks 16th with 114.8 points, which is respectable, but the Celtics are the ones who will take us over the top here. We just saw them put up 135 against on the 5th best defense in the NBA this season, the Kings could very well be in trouble here. Both teams are in fine form when it comes to making threes – the Kings have made 18 and 20 in 2 of their last 3 games, while the Celtics are averaging 17 threes per game in their 3 most recent outings. This game has the over written all over it, so let’s back the points here.
