Point Spread: 
Brooklyn +1.5

The Brooklyn Nets (38-38) will host the Boston Celtics (45-31) in an Atlantic Division clash set to take place in the World’s Most Famous Borough: Brooklyn, New York. The tip is set for 6:00 PM ET and is scheduled to be aired on YES. Boston has held their own in this series as they have won nine of the previous ten meetings with the Nets. Most recently, the C’s defeated the Nets 112-104 when they hosted them on January 28th. The Celtics closed as a nine-point favorite and as a result, failed to produce a cover in the last two matches between these two sides.

Boston Celtics at Brooklyn Nets Betting Overview:

Boston Celtics

The Celtics extended their winning streak to two games last night when they defeated the Indiana Pacers in Beantown by a score of 114-112. The game was nothing short of a thriller and settled in the previous possession. Boston closed as a seven-point favorite and as a result, failed to cover the overlay. Boston is 1-3 ATS in their last four games.

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets saw a four-game cover streak come to an end two days ago in the City of Brotherly Love when they were defeated by the Philadelphia 76ers. The Nets were thumped by a score of 123-110 and failed to come in under the number as a seven-point dog. Brooklyn has lost its last two matches overall.

Reasons To Avoid Boston:

The Celtics are playing this game on the heels of a back-to-back which is a notoriously losing proposition for most NBA teams. Boston is one of those teams as they are 5-6 SU on the year in back-to-back years and they have been a liability against the spread as they are 3-7-1 in back-to-back games.

Reasons To Back Brooklyn:

In the last four contests, the home team has won the match. For Brooklyn, the last time they hosted the Celtics in January was the moment they ended Boston’s supremacy in this series when they ended a ten-game losing streak against Boston. The line here would suggest the same scenario is due to unfold in the Barclay’s Center and given the playoff atmosphere that will be on hand for this contest, the momentum and emotional edge the Nets will garner makes them a savory selection here.

Boston Celtics at Brooklyn Nets Prediction 3/30/19

Here is an angle that Brooklyn bettors can take advantage of. Brooklyn was playing their first game back at home after an insane seven-game road trip. As a general rule of thumb, a team that comes back home after three games or more on the road is quite a profitable choice historically. The Nets are primed to win this one outright. Trade away the bucket and play this one on the Money Line with confidence.
