2004 Season NBA Basketball Past Picks
December 13, 2004
Boston at Los Angeles
Monday 12/13 10:35 PM Eastern
2 units on Boston +3.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: WIN
Boston looks to end their long road trip in fine form after beating the Sonics handily this past weekend. The Clipjoint are 8-20 ATS when playing against a marginal losing team (Win Pct. 40% to 49%) over the last 3 seasons. They are also just 12-29 ATS after a loss by 6 points or less over the last 3 seasons and 31-55 ATS in home games when playing only their 2nd game in 5 days since 1996. Assuming Boston commits to defense in this game, which they should provided their ability rest, they should win this game. This will be a very close ball game against two very evenly matched teams. Two star pick: Celtics plus the points in this contest.
