Over/Under Total Pick:

The Celtics were in a back to back 3 in 4 spot when narrowly losing to the 76ers on Wednesday. That marked a turnaround in play after getting blown out in 3 previous. They’re rested here facing the team with the lowest road wins in the league this season with 3! That being said, we find it difficult to lay points with a team that has won 2 of their last 18 games or to take points with a team that has lost 10 in a row on the road and all by more than today’s allotted point spread. The total on the other hand is playable. The last matchup resulted in 184 points and today’s total line is a healthy 7 points over that total. It also doesn’t hurt that the Magic’s starting point guard won’t go today and that the under has cashed in 7 of the Celtics last 8 home games.
Take the UNDER 191.5
