Brooklyn Nets Betting
Despite playing without their main gunner for the entirety of their road trip, the Brooklyn Nets have made key strides, particularly on their defense. That wasn’t the case though on Wednesday, as they allowed the Celtics to drop 121 points on their head. Spencer Dinwiddie tried to will his team through the first three quarters with his scoring and playmaking ability, but the Nets just couldn’t hang on with the home team in the fourth quarter. Dinwiddie finished with 16 points and 11 assists, while Joe Harris and Garrett Temple scored 21 and 22 points respectively.
Players to Watch: Spencer Dinwiddie (19.6 PPG, 2.4 RPG, 5.7 APG), Joe Harris (14.2 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 1.7 APG), Taurean Prince (13.1 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 1.8 APG)

Boston Celtics vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks
Despite the double-digit win against the Nets, the Celtics are just -3 favorites over the Nets in NBA spread betting. That shows to you that odds-makers for these sports betting sites are paying respect on the Nets, who have become a lot scrappier without Irving and Levert on the lineup.
Moneyline: The Celtics are 2-1 SU against the Nets in their last three games and 6-4 SU on the road. If the first game wasn’t competitive enough, then this next matchup should provide more drama and perhaps some late-game baskets to decide the outcome of the match. The Celtics will repeat over the Nets, but this time Jayson Tatum will lead the charge for them.
ATS: The Celtics won 4 ATS wins of their last five games. This game will be tight, but again, I feel Boston will cover the spread by winning at least five points.
TOTALs: The total for this game opened at 217 points. I picked over since the total in the last game reached 231 points. While the combined scores for this upcoming game may come up a few points lower, I still think reaching 217 points isn’t an impossible feat.
Score Prediction: 120-113 Celtics
