Boston Celtics vs. Phoenix Suns Betting Analysis and Prediction

Boston Celtics (20-5) have been on an absolute tear, as they’ve won eight of their last ten games on the NBA schedule.

The Phoenix Suns (16-8) have been keeping pace with the best of the league, as they’re 7-3 in their last 10 NBA matchups.

The Celtics vs. Suns betting analysis will likely favor the Celtics despite them being the away team. We should be in for an exciting game!

Last Game Records

The Boston Celtics defeated the Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors on back-to-back nights as they climbed 15 games above .500. 

The Phoenix Suns game today will look for them to bounce back after taking a huge loss to the Dallas Mavericks on the road. These records should definitely be considered when making your Celtics vs. Suns betting analysis.

Celtics vs. Suns Betting Analysis

Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtic’s stats offensively are considered the best in the league, as they’re first in offensive rating. 

However, their defense is much better than it’s ranked at the moment, as they have a bunch of wing defenders who can shut down the opponent and bigs who can get physical with other players.

The Celtics’ NBA team stats should reflect better defense as the season progresses, but it’s certainly encouraging to see that they have their offense largely figured out.

Celtic’s Most Recent Win

Jayson Tatum led the way in the Celtics’ most recent win over the Toronto Raptors with 31 points, 12 rebounds, and three assists.

Jaylen Brown added 22 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists. Marcus Smart returned to the lineup and put up 18 points and seven assists.

The Celtics will likely try and throw all of their great defenders toward Devin Booker and take him out of his comfort zone, which is the mid-range game.

They’ll body him up, wall off driving lanes and prevent him from getting any clean looks off.

Phoenix Suns

The Suns are coming off a blowout loss to the Dallas Mavericks, as Devin Booker struggled with his shot all night long.

Booker is usually known for putting up good NBA player stats, but in his last game, he could only put up just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting from the field and eight assists.

Deandre Ayton provided the scoring for the Suns, as he put up 20 points and eight rebounds.

CP3’s Injury

Cam Payne continues to be a reliable option when Chris Paul misses time with injury, as he put up 14 points and ten assists his last time out.

The Suns are a team that does rely heavily on Booker to carry them offensively, as Booker will take his time on certain possessions and really look to create his own shot.

However, there are plenty of possessions where the Suns are willing to move the ball, which creates open looks for the bevy of 3-point shooters on their roster.

NBA Injury Report

Malcolm Brogdon (illness) is probable. Chris Paul (heel) and Torrey Craig (groin) are questionable.

Celtics vs. Suns Betting Preview

The Celtics are favored with a -2 spread on NBA odds today. The over/under is 229.5. The Celtics’ money line is -130, whereas the Suns’ money line is +110.

The Celtics are 16-9 against the spread. The Suns are 14-10 against the spread. All of these stats should be considered when making your Celtics vs. Suns betting analysis.

Celtics vs. Suns Betting Prediction

The Celtics and Suns are on top of their respective conferences, as they are looking to be in the NBA Finals in June.

The battle everyone will be focused on will be between Jayson Tatum and Devin Booker, as both have been lighting up the league with their ability to score, and both famously idolize the late and great Kobe Bryant.

Who to Bet On?

This game is easily one of the more intriguing NBA picks today, as both teams are vying for a top spot in their respective conferences.

With the way both teams are playing, it’s going to be a close game regardless. However, expect the Suns to protect the home court.

NBA Pick: Celtics -2 (-110)
