Nuggets vs. Celtics Betting Odds
Nuggets vs. Celtics Best Bets
Boston Celtics -4.5 (DraftKings -110)
Both of these teams have been dominant offensively but Boston gets the edge here. They sit first in the NBA in offensive efficiency and second in points per game with 118.7. All three of the Nuggets’ losses this season have come on the road and historically they don’t play well against the Celtics, losing the last five contests between the two by an average of 14 points.
Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -120)
Nuggets vs. Celtics Game Total Under 230 (DraftKings -110)
While this game features two of the highest-scoring teams in the NBA, this contest should feature plenty of defense with a slower pace. The total has gone under 228 in the last five games between these two teams, with the last meeting at Boston reaching just 210. This number is a touch too high for these two defenses, give me the under here.
Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -115)
