Boston Celtics vs. Washington Wizards ATS Picks

NBA Playoffs Lines

The Washington Wizards will look to even their Eastern Conference semifinal series on Friday, as they host the Boston Celtics in Game 6 on ESPN. The home team has won each of the first five games in this series, and Washington is favored to win Game 6. It has been a high scoring series, with four of the first five games going over the total. Let’s look at Friday’s game and NBA Playoff picks.

The Celtics rolled over Washington 123-101 in Game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead. Avery Bradley scored a playoff career-high 29 points and Boston dominated the Wizards again at home. Boston has won 11 of the last 13 at TD Garden against Washington. Boston had a balanced attack in the big win. "We're a team. And it's going to take a team effort to beat the Washington Wizards," Bradley said.

Boston led by as many as 26 points in the Game 5 win. John Wall had 21 for the Wizards who have to win Game 6 on Friday night at home or this series is over. The Wizards turned the ball over 13 times in Game 5 and that led to 23 points for Boston. Washington is just 2-9 all-time on the road against Boston in the playoffs.

Key Stat

The Celtics are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win of more than 10 points. The Celtics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 day of rest. The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The favorite is 12-2 ATS in the last 14 meetings in this series and the home team is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

The Over is 8-1 in the Celtics last 9 vs. the Southeast. The Over is 4-1 in the Wizards last 5 vs. the Atlantic.

Celtics vs. Wizards Free Picks

This series is overdue to have a close game and if Boston is going to have any chance to give Cleveland a test in the Eastern Conference Final, they need to win this game on Friday. Boston seemed to figure something out in Game 5 with Isaiah Thomas sharing the ball and looking comfortable. I think Boston will have a chance to win Game 6 on Saturday outright, so I will take the points with the Celtics.
