Bodog Sportsbook Review: Read it here…

The Los Angeles Clippers may have traded Blake Griffin, but that doesn’t mean they’re giving up the ghost. The Clippers are 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS since sending Griffin to Detroit; on Wednesday, they’ll play the Boston Celtics, who have lost three of their last four games straight up and against the spread. Tip-off is at 8 PM ET on ESPN.

Los Angeles (28-26 SU, 29-24-1 ATS) had a history of playing well whenever Griffin was out of the lineup, which happened quite a lot during his tenure. They now have a better-balanced and deeper lineup with Tobias Harris at small forward and Danilo Gallinari replacing Griffin at the 4-spot alongside defensive stalwart DeAndre Jordan. However, starting point guard Milos Teodosic has missed back-to-back games dealing with the sore right foot that has troubled him all season.

The Celtics (40-18 SU, 34-22-2 ATS) didn’t make any trades at last week’s deadline, but they did sign centre Greg Monroe for the remainder of 2017-18. Monroe played very well in 20 games for the Phoenix Suns before getting his contract bought out. Meanwhile, SG Marcus Smart (hand) is being shut down until after the All-Star break, giving more minutes to improving third-year guard Terry Rozier.
