Boston Celtics NBA Betting

The Boston Celtics will waste no time diving into action at the NBA Bubble in Orlando with an opening game against the number one seed Milwaukee Bucks set for Friday, July 31 on ESPN. Boston was one of the most profitable teams on the NBA board at the time play was suspended. The Celtics have lost just 23 out of 64 games against the spread this season. With Kyrie Irving long gone, head coach Brad Stevens has gotten back to his old formula of success which means a team approached based on defense first. In this bizarre restart format, Boston’s gut it out play style of full effort and tight defense could make them a dangerous team and valued wagering option.

What has been an up and down season for the Boston Celtics was put on hold when the NBA was shut down over concerns for the coronavirus. The Celtics looked like a threat early in the season when a 10-game winning streak vaulted them to the top of the Eastern Conference standings. And like a number of teams, injuries played a role in their inconsistent play. But Boston’s final game before the stoppage was a victory over Indiana that clinched a playoff berth and put to rest a streak of four losses in the previous five games. We also witnessed the emergence of Jayson Tatum as a bona fide superstar. When and if the season resumes, the Celtics will definitely be a threat. They were firmly entrenched as the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference with a record of 43-21.

Playoff Preview

The Celtics had nothing to play for in their season finale against the Washington Wizards, as they were locked into the No. 3 seed and a first-round matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers. Boston went 5-3 in the bubble, and the Celtics are considered one of the three favorites to come out of the Eastern Conference along with Milwaukee and Toronto.

While we have yet to see playoff series odds released for Boston’s clash with Philadelphia, the Celtics are sure to be significant favorites. Although they were 1-3 against the Sixers in the regular season, Philly will be without do-it-all playmaker Ben Simmons for the rest of the season. Additionally, Joel Embiid injured his ankle and wrist within the last week, so no one knows just how healthy the All-Star big man will be against Boston.

Season Review

We’ve seen this before from the Celtics. In early January they started a spell where they lost six of eight games only to regain their footing. After that stretch they proceeded to win 10 of their next 11 outings and suddenly became contenders once again. Boston will look to flip the narrative with a pair of road games against a top team in the East and the best team in the NBA. A top-four isn’t a given with only a 4.5 game lead over the fifth-place Pacers to start the week. The good news is that at 42-20 the Celtics maintain the third spot in the standings and they will break out of their funk like they did earlier.

The Celtics open the week in Indiana against a team that beat them 122-117 back on Dec. 11. A 44-point night from Kemba Walker couldn’t prevent Boston from losing to the Pacers for the first time in four games. The Celtics have covered the closing line in their last five road games and they are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 away from home. Their only win in the last five games was on the road and the Celtics are 19-12 SU and 20-10-1 ATS away from the Garden this season.

While the Celtics are reeling, so are the Bucks without MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. Milwaukee closed last week on its first losing streak of the season and the status of the Freak is unclear. With Boston’s luck Antetokounmpo is probably going to play. The teams split the first two games of the season series with each winning at home. Boston stormed back from a 27-point second half deficit to cover the spread in the last meeting, eventually falling 128-123.

Losers of four straight in TD Garden, the Celtics return home to complete a back-to-back set with Washington on Friday in what should be a break after two difficult road contests. But as we’ve seen there’s no such thing in the NBA. In fact, the Wizards pulled off the surprise with a 99-94 win on Jan. 6, ending Boston’s four-game winning streak in the series. Jaylen Brown recorded a double-double with 23 points and 12 boards in that game. Walker tallied 25 points in Boston’s 140-133 home win over the Wiz in November. It’s back to the road for a tilt with Chicago on Sunday. The Celtics are 2-0 against the Bulls this season and they’ve won seven of the last eight meetings.
