There is one NBA pick tonight.
Boston Celtics -2.5 spread against Brooklyn Nets for 3% of the bankroll.
The Boston Celtics will be down a couple of key players tonight with both Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart out of the lineup, which is the reason why the line on this game has dropped. While the loss of Irving and Smart certainly impact this team, we don't necessarily believe it will impact the overall result, especially now that we get the Celtics at a discounted price.
Terry Rozier and Jalen Brown will join the starting 5 tonight and both players have shown their ability to step their roles up when given minutes. If anything, we wouldn't be surprised if their insertion into the lineup actually gives this Boston offense a spark and allows them to put up even more points in this one. These two teams just met last week in Boston, with the Celtics coming away with a convincing 116-95 victory. In that game, 8 players managed to score in double-digits, so we don't believe the loss of Irving and Smart should impact the C's production on offense too much.
The Brooklyn Nets are not world beaters by any stretch of the imagination and the Celtics have a long-standing winning record when playing in Brooklyn, having not lost a game in this arena dating back to the 2015 season. Given the fact that Boston enters this game on a two-game skid, should mean that they have even more added motivation to come out of the Barclay's Center with a victory. The Celtic's depth will be key in this game tonight and with the line where it is currently at, there is a lot of value on the visitors in this one.
