Brooklyn Nets at Boston Celtics Overview

Boston Celtics

The Celtics come in off a bitter loss at home on Saturday when they fell by just four points to the Golden State Warriors. The defeat ended a five-game Celtics win streak and also caused Boston to fail to come in under the number narrowly as a 3.5-point underdog.

Brooklyn Nets

As for the Nets, Brooklyn comes into this contest red-hot as they have won their last six games overall. Over this span, Brooklyn has produced a profitable 5-1 ATS record. Most recently, the Nets greened up as an 8.5-point favorite on Friday when they defeated cross-city rival New York 109-99.

Reasons To Back Boston

The Celtics own one of the most prolific home court advantages in all of the NBA. On the season, the Celtics are 19-6 SU in Beantown, and they have produced some high-profile wins in quite remarkable fashion. This team plays at a higher level on its own court and Brooklyn will have its hands full against the team that owns a top-five scoring defense (105.9 points per game) that remains in the top two in both opponent field goal percentage (44.2%) and opponent three-point field goal percentage (33.5%).

Reasons To Avoid Brooklyn

Generally speaking, anytime we see an underdog take back a substantial amount of points with the public scoffing them down it is a red flag that the favorite is undervalued. Be that as it may, the Nets are taking back 62% of the public interest heading into this match-up which suggests Brooklyn may look too easy here which makes them a risky venture. Much of this can be attested to Brooklyn’s win streak compared to their overall good form in ATS markets which only sets up Brooklyn takers more for a let-down with each cover the Nets generate.

Nets at Celtics Prediction 01/28/2019

If you want to know what a zig-zag looks like this spot offers a fabulous example. Two weeks ago when the two teams met, most of the consensus was on the Celtics laying the road points to the Nets. Brooklyn would go to win impressively as an outright underdog, and now two weeks later they seem ripe for the plucking with an enhanced allotment of points. However, the last time Brooklyn came to Boston the Celtics laid waste to the Nets by a score of 116 to 95. Just like the build-up into this contest, the Nets were also a public darling that day as a 10.5-point pooch. Swallow the points.
