Free Picks and Predictions on this Saturday, April 17, 2021 NBA game between the Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics. This matchup is set to tipoff at 8:30pm et at the TD Garden in Boston. The Celtics are listed as a -4 points favorite according to the Draftkings NBA odds and the over/under is currently at 229 total points.

These two teams last faced each other in the beginning of February where Boston came in as a -2 point road favorite and covered the spread with the 111-107 win. In that game, the Celtics were without one of their key players, Marcus Smart, but the team stepped it up and 5 players scored in the double digits, including Jayson Tatum’s 27 points and 9 rebounds.On the other side of the ball, the Warriors also had five players put up double digits. Steph Curry has another impressive performance, scoring 38 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, but even with those numbers, Golden State was unable to close out the game and lost in the final minute.

The Warriors come into this game at 28-28 overall and can almost taste that eighth seed playoff spot. Andrew Wiggins and Steph Curry combined for 56 points and took care of business in their last game Thursday Night against the Cleveland Cavs, 119-101. Golden State is now playing their third road game in the last 4 days, but they’ve shot over 51% in the last two and if they can continue that kind of offensive production, they should be able to come out victorious. Kelly Oubre Jr. sat out in their last game due to his wrist injury and has been listed as questionable for this game. Rookie, James Wiseman will still be out for the season, but the good news is that yesterday he had successful knee surgery.

In the last 3 games, the Warriors have had the top offense in the league, scoring an average of 127.3 points while also playing great on defense, only giving up an average of 105.7 points. Golden State is 2-6 against the spread in their last 8 games against Boston and the total has gone under in 12 of the Warriors last 16 games on the road.

The Boston Celtics also come into this game red hot, winning their last five in a row and now 7 of their last 10 games. They are currently in the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference at 30-26 overall this season. They’ll be able to grab that sixth win in a row if Marcus Smart can hold Steph Curry to under 30 points.

Robert Williams sat out last game due to left knee soreness and is listed as questionable for this weekend matchup and recently acquired Evan Fournier who’s been out due to health protocols should be returning any game now.

In the last 3 games, the Celtics have scored an average of 114 points, while also playing great defense, only giving up an average of 105 points. Boston is 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Western Conference and the total has gone under in 9 of the Celtics last 10 games at home.
