Ajax can draw first blood in their Champions League semi-final tie with Tottenham and Boston Celtics can prove their Game 1 win in Milwaukee was no fluke in the NBA playoffs.
Ajax had the weekend off to prepare for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final at Tottenham, and that may well prove the difference when the two sides meet in London this evening.
The Eredivisie opted to postpone all games at the weekend and as such Ajax have had a full week off, while Spurs played on Saturday, going down 1-0 at home to West Ham.
Tottenham looked a little jaded in that defeat and they have some key injury worries. Harry Kane is absent with an ankle problem and Son Heung-min is suspended.
With their two main goal threats absent, Spurs could struggle in this first leg and the Dutch club can take advantage.
Boston Celtics have upped their game since the NBA playoffs began and made a huge statement with a 22-point win at Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series.
Game 2 takes place tonight and the Celtics may well be able to claim another victory at 5/2, but the Bucks will be looking to fight back and will still fancy their chances of progress as they look to back up an incredible season with an NBA Finals spot.
This could well be a close game and the +7.5 handicap for Boston looks far too generous, so I’m going to play this one safe and back the visitors in the spread.
