MINNESOTA (+5) over Boston
8:05 p.m. ET
After another NBA winner yesterday on Portland our FREE PICKS are now on an 8-2 run!
Last night we took advantage of a scheduling quirk and went against a Utah Jazz team that we knew would run out of gas and we see a similar scenario tonight with the Celtics. Boston has received a ton of much-deserved hype over the last few weeks as a sleeper team in the Eastern Conference, but we think the pointspread has caught up to them tonight as they are tagged as a road favorite. Not only are the C’s 1-3 ATS this year when listed as a road chalk in this range, but tonight they play their third road game in four nights, with the first two coming in the high altitude of Denver and Utah. The T-Wolves have lost two straight since the All-Star break so you can expect a fully focused effort here, especially since they are in revenge mode after getting routed at Boston, 113-99, back in December. The Celtics shot a blistering 52% from the floor in that game and we don’t see a similar hot shooting night here from a young team that will have tired legs. Take the home dog!
