Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers - 12/27/19 NBA Pick, Odds & Prediction
Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics
Friday, December 27, 2019 at 4:00 PM (TD Garden)
Boston Celtics -13.0 (-105)
The Cleveland Cavaliers go to Boston, Massachusetts to take on the Boston Celtics at TD Garden on Friday. The Cleveland Cavaliers are on a three-game winning streak and are playing some of their best basketball at the moment.
The Cleveland Cavaliers, who had a record of 9 - 21, a two-game winning streak right now, is saying a lot. It looks like Kevin Love, Kevin Porter Jr, Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Tristan Thompson, etc. have found some chemistry and look like they are playing with rejuvenated energy. It'll be interesting to see if they can continue this, or if this was just a flash in the pan moment for Cleveland this year.
The Boston Celtics are on a four-game winning streak and are coming off a win over the defending NBA champion, Toronto Raptors.
The Celtics are 21-7 on the season and have been a huge success this season, but even more so at home, as they have a home record of 12-1.
Cleveland is 12-17 ATS this season
Cavaliers are 1-4 ATS in their last five games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
Boston is 18-8 ATS this season
Celtics are 4-0 ATS in their last four games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
Both teams are playing some of their best basketball of the season. However, the Cleveland Cavaliers are not privy to this success this season, as the Boston Celtics have been. The Cavaliers are 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings in Boston, and with the game being at home, Boston has a huge advantage. The Boston Celtics are the better team, and one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference in general, I think that the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to play with a lot of passion because a win against the Celtics changes a lot of people's minds about them. However, I think that the Boston Celtics are too much firepower to lose to the Cleveland Cavaliers in this one. Final Score Prediction, Boston Celtics win 117 - 110.
