Celtics Strong Bet to Continue Mastery of Nets

The Boston Celtics are a huge favorite in our NBA betting lines on Wednesday night as they try for a back-to-back sweep of the visiting Brooklyn Nets.

The Celtics registered 72 points in the first half and eased to a 118-110 victory over the Nets in Brooklyn on Tuesday, improving to 3-0 in the season series. Jayson Tatum recorded 41 points, 14 rebounds and five assists as Boston beat the Nets for the 13th time in the last 14 meetings.

The fifth straight victory for the Celtics improved their league-best record to 42-12 and they have lost just three of 28 games at home if you bet online.

Brooklyn sits 2½ games outside of playoff position in the Eastern Conference after losing for the fourth time in five outings. The good news is that third-leading scorer Cameron Johnson (13.9) could return after missing the last four games with an adductor strain.

Boston is the favorite in the Las Vegas odds to win the NBA title at +300.

Nets vs Celtics Over/Under Pick: Over 227

This is probably one of the toughest NBA predictions tonight. A lot depends on how much defense is played, but we think if there are not too many top players rested they can top this number.

 

Nets vs Celtics ATS Pick: Celtics -13

Brooklyn has not been totally blown out of the water in the three meetings this season, going 0-1-2 ATS. However, the Celtics should be primed for an easy victory, and center Kristaps Porzingis (back) could return after missing Tuesday’s game.

 

Nets vs Celtics Player Prop: Derrick White Over 14½ Points (-113)

White had 16 points, including three 3-pointers, in the win on Tuesday. The guard should get room as Brooklyn tries to clamp down on Tatum, Brown, and perhaps Porzingis.
