20* NBA Monday Total DOMINATOR on Celtics/Bobcats UNDER 193
Boston vs. Charlotte,

Score: 91 - 94
Total: -107/+193 Under
The books have set the bar too high tonight in this contest between the Boston Celtics and Charlotte Bobcats. I look for a low-scoring, defensive battle in this one folks.
Boston won't have much left in the tank after playing a triple-overtime thriller Sunday against Denver. I believe that will affect its offense a lot more than its defense. The Celtics simply won't have their legs under them, which makes it very tough to knock down jump shots.
A look at the recent meetings between these teams and it's easy to see that this number has been inflated. Eight of the last nine meetings between the Bobcats and Celtics have seen 193 or less combined points. They have averaged a combined 179.9 points/game in those nine contests, which is roughly 13 points less than tonight's posted total.
Boston is 24-10 to the UNDER in road games when playing on back-to-back days over the last 3 seasons. The Celtics are 16-4 to the UNDER in road games after 2 or more consecutive overs over the last 3 seasons. The UNDER is 5-0 in Celtics last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of less than .400. The UNDER is 6-1 in Bobcats last 7 overall. Bet the UNDER in this game Monday.
