According to the Boston Celtics, Marcus Smart (thigh) won’t be available for Wednesday’s game against the Pacers, but Payton Pritchard will rejoin the team after clearing COVID protocols.
Boston’s been underwhelming this season as it’s just 20-21 on the year and tied for the tenth seed in the playoff play-in tournament.
The Celtics opened as a 2.5-point road favorite, but sharp bettors have already cut them down 1.5 points. Boston hasn’t done the job against the lesser teams as it’s 0-6 against the spread in its past six games when facing teams below .500. As for the total, it’s currently sitting at 211.5, and we’re seeing some sharp action on the under. It’s worth noting that the total is 6-1 to the under in Boston’s past seven games against an opponent coming off a game that allowed at least 100 points.
