  • The Celtics lost just 18 games during the regular season, 14 less than the next best in the Eastern Conference.
  • Cleveland has lost their last nine straight road games against teams that hold a winning record.

  • In 76 of Boston’s 82 games this season the total match points has gone over 208.5.

The Boston Celtics were favourites to win the 2023/24 NBA Championships leading into this playoff series and their 4-1 win over Miami only solidified this position.

Game 1 of this Eastern Conference semi final will take place in front of Boston’s home fans at TD Garden and they have a great chance to set up the series with a win.

While it took just five games for the Celtics to progress, Cleveland went all the way to game seven to eventually progress past the Magic, winning game seven at home.

They still come into this contest having won just twice in their last five games and have scored 100+ points in two of their last seven.

Punters that have followed Boston this season have simply been winning as they have been the punters’ elect in 79 games and have saluted in 63 of those.

Boston are 7-3 against the line in their last 10 games and they have a better record against the line at home (23-17-1) than they have away (19-19-3).
