Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Nets seem to have found a defensive identity with their superstar point guard sitting out with a shoulder injury. Brooklyn held down their last four opponents between 90s and lows 100s while making all of them inefficient with their shot selection. In Monday’s 108-106 thriller over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Spencer Dinwiddie scored 23 points on 10-for-24 shooting and Jarrett Allen racked up 22 points and 21 boards to lead the Nets to a gut-checked win.

Players to Watch: Spencer Dinwiddie (19.6 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 5.1 APG), Jarrett Allen (11.5 PPG and 10.1 RPG) Joe Harris (13.4 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 1.8 APG)

Boston Celtics Betting

The Boston Celtics avenged their close 99-100 loss to the Sacramento Kings with a razor-sharp 103-102 win on Tuesday at home. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum scored 24 and 20 points respectively, while Marcus Smart scored key baskets late to overcome Buddy Hield’s 41-point explosion.

Players to Watch: Jayson Tatum (20.5 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 2.5 APG), Jaylen Brown (18.8 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 2.3 APG), Marcus Smart (12.3 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 5.0 APG)

Brooklyn Nets vs Boston Celtics Betting Picks

Getting Kemba Walker back would be a big boost for the Celtics’ NBA Moneyline and NBA spread betting chances. Boston is a 7-point favorite but that spread could widen if Walker’s return to the lineup gets confirmed.

Moneyline: The Celtics are 1-2 against the Nets in their last three games, but they will still be my pick since they will likely have Walker back to play while the visiting team’s All-Star guard is scheduled to sit out.

ATS: The Celtics had close matches the lost three games, making me a bit hesitant to pick them covering a 7-point spread.

TOTALs: The total opened at 225 points and I pick UNDER for this game. The Celtics are one of the best defensive teams (103 points allowed per game) in the NBA, while the Nets are also picking up with their defense lately.

Score Prediction: 105-100 Celtics
