Celtics Favored by NBA Game Betting Odds over PistonsPosted by: Charlie Smith
The NBA game betting odds and lines are primed for a successful evening of basketball wagering. There are a total of 8 different matchups for bettors to try their luck out on, with the action kicking off this evening with an Eastern Conference matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Philadelphia 76ers. However, since the Cavaliers are no longer the leading titans in the Eastern Conference, sports betting websites might end up paying more attention to this evening’s pairing between the Detroit Pistons and the Boston Celtics; or the matchup pitting the top two teams in the East against each other. Let’s take a look at who the wagering lines are siding with this evening.

The Pistons maneuver their way into this Monday night pairing with a 12-6 record that ranks Detroit 1st in the Central Division and ultimately 2nd in the East behind tonight’s opponent. Considering that the Pistons are coming off a losing season, it’s safe to say that both the franchise and its fans are ecstatic about the way things are shaping up so far in 2017. Detroit got off to a slow start his season as the team posted a 2-2 record through their first 4 games of the regular season. However, it wouldn’t take long for Detroit to find their footing and once they did, the team hasn’t looked back. Since that .500 start, the Pistons have posted a 10-4 record which ranks them amongst the NBA elite, much to everyone’s surprise, at the moment. Detroit has gone 7-3 so far in November, which seems pretty good but the Piston’s most recent games haven’t gone their way considering that they’re 2-3 in their last 5 games. Detroit will be looking to even out that stretch by picking up a massive online sportsbook upset this evening.
The NBA game betting odds are siding heavily with Boston this evening and that comes as no surprise considering what we’ve seen out of Kyrie Irving on the court. Before this year’s season kicked off, many NBA pundits were wondering if Irving made a mistake by deserting LeBron James, who is widely considered to be one of, if not the, best basketball players in the world. Well, considering that Irving’s squad currently leads the East while Bron’s ranks 3rd, it’s starting to look like Irving was onto something. It’s still very early in the year to make judgment calls, but this is unquestionably one of the best storylines of the 2017 season.
The Celtics enter this matchup with an 18-3 record that gives them a 6-game lead over tonight’s competition. In other words, Boston can suffer a loss this evening and rest assured that their ranking won’t be affected in the minimum. Fans can still expect the Celtics to come out and put on a clinic however. The Celts’ most recent loss came at the hands of the Miami Heat, which was more of a fluke than anything else. But considering that Boston almost always puts its best foot forward against top-ranking competition, fans can expect the Celtics to light up the floor tonight.
