Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics have been smoking hot ever since bowing out to the Philadelphia 76ers in the season-opener. Kemba Walker has been a perfect fit for Boston so far, leading the team in points and opening opportunities for his teammates to score. But the biggest difference for this team right now is the great play of Gordon Hayward. Two years after that devastating leg injury, Hayward set a career-high of 39 points against Cleveland Cavaliers and followed it up with 20 points, 10 rebound, and 6 assists output against the Charlotte Hornets.
Players to Watch: Kemba Walker (24.3 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.0 APG), Jayson Tatum (21.6 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 1.9 APG), Gordon Hayward (20.3 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 4.6 APG)
San Antonio Spurs Betting
The Spurs snapped their two-game losing skid on Thursday with a 121-112 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. LaMarcus Aldridge poured in a season-high 39 points, while DeJounter Murray flirted with a triple (17 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds). San Antonio shot a bit better from the three-point line in this game with a 9-for-20 clip.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (20.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.8 APG), LaMarcus Aldridge (19.0 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 2.5 APG), Bryn Forbes (14.5 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 1.4 APG)

Boston Celtics vs San Antonio Spurs Betting Picks
The Spurs are 4-1 at home this season and dominated their last 10 head-to-head matchups with the Celtics, 9-1. However, this year’s Celtics look a lot different from the squad that featured Kyrie Irving. Walker might be a step down in terms of individual talent, but his leadership is fostering great chemistry for this dark horse title contender.
Moneyline: The Celtics will extend their winning streak to seven with another victory over a Western Conference heavyweight. Expect Walker and Hayward to continue their fine play with each dropping at least 20 points.
ATS: The Celtics are poised to add another ATS win to their record. Boston is 4-2-1 in ATS this season.
TOTALs: This game will go under the NBA over/under totals of 215.5 points. The Spurs are a great scoring team at 112 points per game. However, scoring more than 110 points against the Celtics defense is asking too much.
Score Prediction: 108-99 Celtics
