Boston at Los Angeles

2 units on Los Angeles +6 (-105) (risk 2 to return 3.9) RESULT: LOSS
The Boston Celtics have been some sort of a mystery this season. They have seen their young players Jalen Brown, and Justin Tatum becomes stars, and have a third all-star caliber player directing the offense in Kemba Walker. Despite all that, Boston has not defended nearly as well as in the past couple of seasons, and they just don't generate enough off the bench. The net result is a team that has been flirting around the .500 mark all season. The Lakers have had to live without Davis and James but have enough to remain competitive. They have covered four of their last five and within that timeframe, have recorded impressive wins vs. Charlotte and Brooklyn, both on the road. This game certainly looks a lot more competitive than the line. Third Max Play, make the play on Los Angeles.
