Boston vs. Indiana
Tuesday 12/29 07:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Boston +1 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: WIN
Boston is 1-2 and Indiana is 3-0, and the Celtics are a slight dog on the road because they just lost by a point to the Pacers on Sunday, giving Boston a quick revenge situation, and it's difficult to beat a team twice in a row. Jayson Tatum had 25 points but missed a 3-pointer with less than two seconds left in Sunday's loss. Indiana's other two wins were against lowly New York and Chicago, and the Pacers are due to cool off after shooting 52.0 percent their first three games. Boston is 9-2-1 ATS its last 12 games following an ATS loss, so look for the Celtics to clamp down defensively as that has been the problem so far this season. Boston does miss Kemba Walker, but it still has a fine nucleus in Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart. Look for Boston to redeem itself tonight. Play the Celtics.
