The Boston Celtics and Sacramento Kings meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center.

The Boston Celtics need another win after losing five of their last seven games. The Boston Celtics are averaging 112 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 106.8 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Kyrie Irving is averaging 23.4 points and 6.9 assists while Jayson Tatum is averaging 16.1 points and 6.3 rebounds. Marcus Morris is the third double-digit scorer and Al Horford is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Boston Celtics are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 81 percent from the free throw line. The Boston Celtics are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.9 rebounds per game. The Boston Celtics have won five of their last eight road games.

The Sacramento Kings need a victory after losing five of their last seven games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 115.1 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 21 points and 5.2 rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.2 points and 7.2 assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 7.1 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.3 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have won 10 of their last 13 home games.

The Celtics are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 Wednesday games, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Kings are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 home games, 37-17 ATS in their last 54 games playing on 1 days rest and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Celtics are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the home team is 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings. The under is 19-7-1 in Kings last 27 overall. The under is 4-0 in Celtics last 4 overall.

The Boston Celtics are coming off one of their best games of the season in which they mopped the floor with the Golden State Warriors. For once, the Celtics looked like the title contenders many had them being before the season started. It's now a question if they can build on such a performance and avoid a letdown. The Sacramento Kings need a win if they're going to complete their goal of making the playoffs, and they're solid at home where they've won 10 of their last 13 games and are 22-11 ATS. The problem is the Celtics are the better team no matter how you slice it, and you'll make a lot of money in this business by simply taking the better team whenever getting free points. 

Pick:
Boston Celtics +1
