Why Bet on the Boston Celtics?
Everybody expected the first-round series between the Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets to be hotly-contested affairs. And even though none of the first three games were decided by a double-digit lead, the fact remains that Boston came out on top of those three contests.
On Saturday, the Celtics took home a hard-earned 109-103 win in Brooklyn, with the Nets not getting another lead in the game after the middle of the first quarter. Jayson Tatum had another monstrous outing, finishing with a game-high 39 points along with six steals. Jaylen Brown added 23 points as well, with several of his buckets coming in the clutch to keep Boston ahead in the fourth quarter.
Boston is the fourth-best scoring team in the postseason thus far, averaging 112.7 points per game on 49.6 percent shooting from the field. What makes their numbers more impressive is that they’ve had to face the postseason favorites to win the NBA championship this season and are making it look easy in the process.
Why Bet on the Brooklyn Nets?
That Game 3 loss on Saturday is arguably one of the most disappoinding playoff defeats in recent memory for the Brooklyn Nets. They lost at home despite shooting over 50 percent from the floor and going 12-of-29 from the three-point line (41.4 percent), and the reason why they came up short is rather shocking.
When Brooklyn’s leading scorer in its postseason home opener is Bruce Brown (26 points), you know something’s not right with the team. The Nets’ one-two punch of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving scored just 16 points apiece, withIrving failing to make all seven of his shots from beyond the arc. Trasitional offense was certainly an issue, as Boston had 25 fast-break points to just nine for Brooklyn.
Needless to say, the Nets have history working against them, as no team in NBA history has been able to claw out of a 3-0 series hole. A win in Monday’s clash isn’t out of the picture for Brooklyn, though, especially with desperation now at its peak to give the team more urgency.

Celtics vs. Nets Expert Betting Prediction
All signs point to an easy sweep for the Celtics. However, as we just witnessed on Sunday with the Nuggets avoiding their own sweep at the hands of the Warriors, the Nets are far from out of the postseason just yet. Brooklyn has not been blown out entirely by Boston this entire series, giving the Nets plenty of hope that they can still hang around for at least one more game.
