Advice and prediction

The Kings won this matchup in Sacramento on Feb. 3rd, 116-111, and since then the Celtics have been largely unpredictable on a night-to-night basis. Both of these teams have a sub-.500 record against the spread, with Boston covering just once in their last five games, and the Kings sitting at 17-23 ATS on the season.

This matchup is a bit of a toss-up given how inconsistent each team is, so I’m just going to take the points here with the Celtics on a two-game losing streak. Kings +7 in a game closer than it should be.

Prediction: Celtics 117, Kings 112
