Boston Celtics vs. Washington Wizards Betting Prediction
The Boston Celtics have been among the best teams in the NBA this season. Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards, who have struggled and appear likely to miss the play-in tournament, will be without two of their top three scorers.
Look for the Celtics, who have won each of their past three games by an average of over 30 points, to once again win by at least 12 points.
