The Boston Celtics just keep on rolling. They've now won 13 of their last 14 games and are coming off one of their best games of the season after destroying the Charlotte Hornets, 140-105, on Monday.

They'll face a much tougher challenge on Wednesday, however, as the Miami Heat come to town for a rematch of last season's Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics already beat the Heat in their second game of the season, 111-104 in Miami, but can the Heat get revenge on the road in Boston?

Celtics vs. Heat Prediction & Pick

As mentioned, the Celtics have gotten the better of the Heat lately. They took down Miami during the Eastern Conference Finals last spring and edged the Heat again during their first meeting of the year in October.

Boston's caught fire since then and has been downright unstoppable recently. The last six Celtics victories have all been by at least eight points and their offense is firing on all cylinders, ranking first in points per game (121.3) and first in offensive rating.

The Heat, meanwhile, have gotten off to a sluggish start and come into this game with a losing record (10-11). They've won three in a row and are playing terrific defense (eighth-fewest PPG allowed), but their offense has been a major problem (28th in scoring) and won't be able to keep up with Boston.

Final Score Prediction: Celtics: 118 | Heat: 107

Celtics vs. Heat Best Bet

As noted, the Celtics are blowing teams out of the water. A nine-point spread may seem like a lot, but Boston is outscoring teams by an average of 8.4 points per game and has been annihilating opponents at home. The Celtics have won nine straight at TD Garden and are 10-1 at home this year, with eight of those wins coming by at least nine points. Bet on Boston to cover the spread here.

Bet: Celtics -9 (-112)
