The Boston Celtics will look to stay hot when they take on the Detroit Pistons in a Saturday matinee at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. The Celtics (35-26) have won 10 of their last 11 games. Their only loss over that stretch ironically came to the Pistons (14-45) on Feb. 16. Tipoff is at noon ET. Caesars Sportsbook lists Boston as an 11.5-point favorite in the latest Celtics vs. Pistons odds, while the Over/Under is 216.
Before making any Pistons vs. Celtics picks or NBA predictions, see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. (Check out the odds of every game on SportsLine's NBA odds page.)
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit for $100 players on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 18 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 69-41 roll on all top-rated NBA picks, returning almost $2,300. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.
The model knows that Boston is one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. The Celtics allow just 104.8 points per 100 possessions, which ranks second in the league behind only Golden State. Over the last 11 games, Boston is giving up just 97.6 points per 100 possessions, which is the best in the NBA over that time and far ahead of second place Miami (106.9).
The model also knows that Detroit enters the game knowing it knocked off these same Celtics just last week. On Feb. 16 Jerami Grant scored a game-high 24 points and hit the game-winning bucket in a 112-111 victory that ended Boston's nine-game winning streak. Cade Cunningham added 20 points and a key block in the final minute, and the Pistons shot 53.3 percent (16-of-30) on 3-pointers in the game.
Now, the model has simulated Celtics vs. Pistons 10,000 times, and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning Under the total, predicting a combined 215 points, and it also says one side of the spread has all the value. You absolutely need to see it before locking in your own picks.
