Before making any Celtics vs. Lakers picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 8 of the 2021-22 NBA season up almost $2,000 on all top-rated NBA picks this season. It's also on a stunning 121-78 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread that dates back to last season. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows the Lakers have been idle since suffering a 119-115 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday. LeBron James returned to action after missing one game while in the NBA's health and safety protocols, recording 23 points and 11 rebounds, and Anthony Davis also registered a double-double with 27 and 10, respectively. The Lakers are tied for fifth in the league in rebounding (46.3), with the 28-year-old Davis leading the way with 10 per contest.

The model also knows the Celtics have split the first two games of their trek, losing in Utah before cruising to a 145-117 victory at Portland on Saturday. Boston nearly finished the contest with seven players in double figures as Enes Freedom scored nine points while grabbing 15 rebounds off the bench. Jayson Tatum, who is ninth in the league in scoring (25.2 points), and Dennis Schroder each recorded 31 points in the rout.
