The Boston Celtics are averaging 104.5 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 103.4 points on 44 percent shooting. Isaiah Thomas is averaging 26 points and 6.4 assists while Avery Bradley is averaging 17.9 points and 7.9 rebounds.

The Pistons are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 road games. The Celtics are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 Wednesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Pistons are 3-7-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
Horford is expected to return for the Celtics, and the Pistons are fresh off a game late Tuesday night. Even though the Pistons burned me yesterday, they're still not a great road team and have lost four of their last six games against the Celtics. I'll take Boston by double digits even though there are better bets on the board for Wednesday night.
