Live on BT Sport & Betfair Live Video
The Boston Celtics finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference and earned home court advantage until the NBA Finals as a reward. That advantage should come especially handy in Game 7 of their series against the Washington Wizards, as the home team has won all six games thus far.
John Wall's late heroics in Game 6 allowed Washington to live another day, but all signs point to a swift death in Game 7 unless the Wizards can slow down Avery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas, both of whom finished with 27 points in the loss in Washington. Bradley scored 29 points in Game 5, too, and he has quickly become a key player in the series.
The Washington Wizards are clear underdogs in Game 7. On the Moneyline, Betfair offers odds of [2.62] for the Wizards and [1.5] for the Celtics. The Wizards are +4.5 in the handicap market at [2.14], and conversely, the Celtics are -4.5 at [1.82]. The Total Points lines is 211.5 with both the Over and Under offering [1.96].
