If you feel like staying in on Friday nights, this is the PRO Report for you.
The Boston Celtics travel to Phoenix to take on the Suns in a matchup that sharps are eyeing as one with value. If you can stomach the 10 p.m. tip, or if you’re the type of person that doesn’t need to watch their bets unfold, this could be a worthwhile bet to make.
Boston comes into the matchup at 13-13 and having lost two games in LA on the bounce, one to the Lakers and one to the Clippers. The Suns have lost just one game since October 27, but are only a small five-point favorite heading into the contest.
Neither team will be dealing with any fresh injury blows on Friday night, but the Suns will still be without Devin Booker due to a hamstring strain while Jaylen Brown will be out for the Celtics with the same ailment.
Here is where sharp bettors are placing their wagers ahead of the late-night game.
Celtics vs. Suns Sharp Betting Pick
The Action Network’s PRO Report is indicating that sharp money is coming in on the Celtics.
While the public likes the chances of the team with the second best record in the league to cover the five points at home (67% of public wagers / 69% of money wagered), sharps are in disagreement.
This line opened at 5.5 but has already ticked down to 5 and 4.5 in a lot of places, so be sure to act fast to get the best value possible if you’re going to ride with the C’s.
