Game Totals Prediction

Bookmaker analysts consider Boston the clear favorite for the upcoming match. It's worth agreeing with them. The Celtics have a good record of away games - eight wins in 14 matches. A team from Massachusetts with a fighting squad will have to achieve a convincing victory on the road over not the most formidable opponent.

Our prediction is a victory for Boston with a handicap of (-3.5) points, taking into account overtime for 1.95 at Mostbet.

The Lakers and Boston show good results in head-to-head matches. In the last two matches out of three, the 240 point mark was overcome. Everything is leading to the fact that this time both teams will prefer to pay more attention to attack.

Our prediction is a total of more than 240.5 points, taking into account overtime in 2.55.

The Lakers will play their first home game after a short road tour. There is no doubt that the basketball players of the team from the Golden State will do everything in their power to please their fans on their home court, who clearly miss their favorites. The Lakers will try to take the initiative from the first minutes of the game. However, these efforts will not be sufficient for overall victory.

Our prediction is a Lakers victory in the first quarter of the match in 2.13.
