Suns vs Celtics Over/Under Pick: Over 227½

Given the amount of offense on the floor at TD Garden, we’re including the over 227½ in our NBA picks.

The Celtics have been scoring plenty of points recently, including totals of 117 in a win at Phoenix, 121 and 123 from their last three games.

The Suns are no strangers to scoring plenty of points, and we expect it to be an exciting offensive contest.

Betting trends support the under, but the line is low enough to secure at value odds. We expected our Bet US sportsbook to have it around 236, so we’re taking it.


Suns vs Celtics ATS Pick: Celtics -6

The Celtics are the best team in the NBA, and they feature in our NBA future bets for the title.

They have enough class to handle the Suns, and playing at TD Garden is a big boost for the Celtics, who return home after a lengthy road trip.

With only three losses at home, the Celtics should have the measure of the Suns, who lost 117-107 in their most recent meeting last week.

Look for Jayson Tatum to score at will against a Suns’ defense that is moderate at best.


Suns vs Celtics Player Prop Pick: Jayson Tatum Over 30½ Points

There is also good value with NBA prop odds, and we’re including Jayson Tatum over 30½ points in our picks.

Tatum is Boston’s best scorer at 27 points per game. He needs to exceed that number to cash the prop bet, but we expect him to get off plenty of shots against the Suns’ defense.

He scored 29 points in the first meeting, so we’re backing him to cash again.


Suns vs Celtics Prediction

Boston Celtics 121, Phoenix Suns 113
