Celtics at Suns NBA Picks

By Betmaker Team

The Boston Celtics visit the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night in a game that can be seen on ESPN. The Celtics come into this game leading the Eastern Conference and boast the best record in the NBA, while the Suns have the top record in the Western Conference. The Celtics have the best road record in the league, while the Suns have the top home mark, so this should be quite a matchup. Boston is playing the third game of a six-game road trip and they have already won the first two stops on the trip, as they won in Brooklyn on Sunday and in Toronto on Monday. They did have Tuesday off but this is still a three-games in four nights scenario for the Celtics. The Suns are coming off a poor performance on Monday night, as they were blown out in Dallas. Let’s look at Celtics vs. Suns NBA picks.

Boston Celtics at Phoenix Suns NBA Free Pick


This is not a good spot for Boston, as they will be playing their third game in four nights, but the Celtics are playing so well it is tough to go against them. I still think based on the situation that you can make a case for taking the Suns, especially if they are the home dog. I also think the total is worth playing in this contest. Did you notice how many points the Celtics are putting up on a nightly basis? They are scorching the nets on a regular basis and Phoenix can also put up a lot of points. And both of these teams are excellent 3-point shooting teams and we know that this league has turned into a 3-point shooting league. The Suns didn’t play much defense against the Mavericks on Monday and Boston doesn’t figure to have a ton of energy to get back on defense for this game, so I will go over the total with the Celtics and Suns on Wednesday night.
