Boston Celtics Betting

The Boston Celtics are expected to rely anew on Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. However, head coach Ime Udoka needs more help from other players such as Al Horford and Marcus Smart. Defending the Warriors outside sniping and the fast-paced game will be a concern if the Cs intend to show that their NBA Finals stint is no fluke.

Golden State Warriors Betting

The Golden State Warriors have gotten time to rest, something that could be good or bad. Being out of action since defeating the Dallas Mavericks, it will be interesting if guys like Steph Curry and Klay Thompson can come out smoking once more. Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole need to do their share as well if the Dubs want to win their first NBA title since 2018. The Celtics are tough and unpredictable customers, a reason why Kerr and company cannot afford to let their guard down.
