Boston opened as a -160 favorite at Pinnacle and, according to Sports Insights’ Betting Trends data, is currently receiving 73% of moneyline bets and 81% of runline wagers. This game currently ranks fifth in terms of number of bets placed, but square bettors often like to bet games that are on television, so that number could increase significantly (tonight’s game is nationally televised).
The steady public betting has pushed the line anywhere from -180 to -190 at the market-setting sportsbooks. At the time of this writing, there has yet to be any positive plays on either team. There have been two Steam Moves triggered on this game, but both are on the total (which currently sits at 10).
