Boston Celtics Betting Background
The Boston Celtics are looking to bounce back after losing to two of the bottom teams in the league in their previous matches against the Washington Wizards and the Detroit Pistons. At the time of this writing, the Celtics sit in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with a 13-13 record and are 6-4 at home. Check out the Celtics vs. Nuggets odds and bet on this game between top contenders of their respective conferences.
Nevertheless, we know that Boston has what it takes to get through this rough patch. They have been solid for several years, with minimal changes to the core team. This makes us think that they are among the names in the league boasting the best team chemistry.
Boston Celtics Betting Trends
- The Celtics won their last head to head against Denver at home, 108-95 in 2019.
- The Celtics are 2-0 ATS in their last two games against Denver.
Denver Nuggets Betting Background
The Nuggets are coming off a win against the Los Angeles Lakers. Despite not holding on to a position that resembles last season’s standings, they still have more time to secure a top-4 finish in the Western Conference.
Furthermore, they also preserved their core from last season, making the Nuggets vs. Celtics odds much more interesting. The team’s fairytale run in last year’s playoffs puts them in a good spot in this match-up. Sadly, Murray might have limited minutes in this game due to a minor ankle injury he recently suffered. But expect other players stepping up, most notably Paul Millsap, who is on an impressive 58.1% shooting and averaging just shy of 11 points over the last 10 games.
Denver Nuggets Betting Trends
- The Nuggets are on a 3-game winning streak, including a 122-105 home win over the Los Angeles Lakers last Sunday.
- The Nuggets are 7-5 on the road this season.
