The Bottom Line What to wager on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
The Celtics come into this game washouts of two of their last three games. They vanquished the Sacramento Kings on Monday without their top scorer Kemba Walker. He is relied upon to play on Wednesday, so that should support the Celtics offense. They may likewise get Daniel Theis once again from the disease that sidelined him on Monday. The Nets are riding a four game series of wins, and have done it without a portion of their top players. The Nets will return to earth against an intense Celtics group and will break their four game series of wins. The Celtics are unreasonably useful for damage drained Nets group to beat.
Prediction: Boston Celtics – 6.5
Full-Game Total Pick
The Celtics are averaging over 110 focuses per game yet have probably the best protection in the association, surrendering just 103 focuses per game. The Nets are still without Irving and LeVert, so scoring focuses will be difficult to accomplish for Brooklyn’s offense. The Nets normal 112 focuses per game, yet they won’t arrive at that detriment for the Celtics. I’m picking under 225 in this one.
Prediction: Under 225
