Pistons vs. Celtics: Odds favor Boston tonight in Game 5

Pistons vs. Celtics: Odds favor Boston tonight in Game 5 Tonight is the Game 5 of the NBA's Eastern Conference playoff finals between the Detroit Pistons and the Boston Celtics, and although the Pistons managed to tie the series at 2-2, they are big underdog on Wednesday. At the online sportsbook BodogSports, the Boston Celtics are -6 favorite against the spread for Game 5, with the total sitting at 173 points. The Celtics are -225 favorite, while the Detroit Pistons will be once again the underdog with odds to win the fifth game in the conference finals series at +215. Keep in mind that Detroit is 13-6 against the spread in its last 19 games, while Boston is 12-4 against the spread in its last 16 games at home and the Celtics are 5-16 SU in their last 21 games when playing the Pistons. The low total for the finals game tonight stems from the fact that Detroit is the toughest team to score on in the league, allowing just 90.1 points per game and Boston has the second stingiest defence in the league at 90.3 points per game. In the big picture, Boston Celtics are still second favorite to win the 2008 NBA Championship after the Lakers with odds 5/2 and the Pistons sit on odds 9/2 to become the NBA Champion this season.
