Celtics vs. Wizards Prediction & Pick

The Celtics have been flat-out dominant this season thanks to their incredible offense, which ranks first in both points per game and offensive rating. Boston has been blowing teams out of the water, especially at home where they've been nearly unbeatable.

The Wizards have been surprisingly solid this year after finishing last season 12 games below .500. Their defense has been their main strength so far, giving up the ninth-fewest points per game and ranking sixth in defensive rating.

Washington's offense has been a major weakness, however, generating the second-fewest points per game in the NBA. Their issues scoring the ball put them at a major disadvantage here against the high-flying Celtics, as the Wizards will be unable to keep up on the road.

Final Score Prediction: Celtics: 116 | Wizards: 104

Celtics vs. Wizards Best Bet

The Celtics are coming off back-to-back wins by double digits at home and beat the Wizards by 18 points in their previous matchup this year, seeing Boston up for another victory by a comfortable margin. Bank on the Celtics winning this game by double digits as well and covering the spread in the process.

Bet: Celtics -7.5 (-110)
