Suns vs Celtics Betting Prediction
A rested Phoenix squad welcomes a Boston side who are playing their third road game in four days. The Suns have the second-best record in the league and are 11-2 at home this season.
Boston appear to play well with a rest disadvantage. They are 4-2 ATS when playing with less rest than their opponents. Don’t expect them to cover the spread in Phoenix though. The Celtics have struggled on their West Coast road trip going 1-3. They got thoroughly beaten by the Lakers and suffered a tough loss against the Clippers.
Phoenix have won 11 straight at home and are a far betting shooting team than the Celtics. The extra rest should help them recover from a busy few weeks and they will be charged and ready to take on the Celtics.
Pick: Phoenix Suns -5.5
