Boston already has a couple of bad losses on the season but this is an experinced team that just played a better Kentucky team last season and lost by 24 points. Also, Boston can flat out shoot the rock with more than 10 made threes per game. I can't lay this much chalk with a team that can shoot the long ball at an impressive percentage.
