It’s about to go down at TD Garden as the Warriors vs Celtics Game 6 headlines the sporting week.
The Golden State Warriors took Game 5 at Chase Center but the Boston Celtics have been best-backed to bounce back in Game 6 at home.
The Warriors are known for winning NBA Championships on their home court, which may provide bettors with a good spot to bet on the home team.
The Celtics are favored to win at -4 and most of the early Moneyline has come for them.
Warriors Going for the Kill
After some rough moments in the NBA Finals’ early stages, the Golden State Warriors have rallied and are currently in command with a 3-2 lead.
They seized successive victories at home and away, and now they can put the Boston Celtics to rest and capture another NBA championship.
Never forget, the Warriors don’t always play their best basketball when they’re up in a series and playing on the road. We saw that when they played for the Western Conference Championship against the Dallas Mavericks. They had a chance to win the series 4-0 in Dallas, but they played their poorest game of the series.
We would prefer to bet on the Warriors in Game Seven, so their current odds of +145 aren’t enticing in this situation.
Rest assured, we’re not going to discount how well the likes of Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins are playing. Curry’s supporting cast hasn’t been dynamic, but when Curry had an off night in game five, they stepped up to the plate.
Klay Thompson has also been knocking down shots and Warriors vs Celtics Game 6 odds suggest he could keep the game close for the Warriors.
The Warriors are favored to win the NBA Finals in NBA Finals betting odds, which is likely to change if the Warriors don’t close it out.
Celtics’ Backs Against the Wall
There is no turning back for the Boston Celtics, who are down 3-2 and need to win at home on Thursday.
We’re still waiting for Tatum to have a breakout game, but he came close in Game Five with 27 points and 10 rebounds. Despite playing with an apparent shoulder injury, Tatum is doing enough to keep the Celtics in the hunt, and their odds to win the NBA Finals rest on his shoulders.
“When we’re at our best, it’s simple ball movement. I think the third quarter showed that. The drive and kick were beautiful, was working, getting guys wide-open shots,” coach Ime Udoka said told ESPN.
When the Celtics spread the floor and pass, they are at their best. We’ve witnessed far too many one-on-one possessions, particularly during crucial moments. The Celtics will need to play as a team if they want to win Game Six, but the -4 line in Warriors vs Celtics Game 6 odds are worth taking.
We believe the Boston Celtics have a chance to win Game Six on their own court, so we’re staying with them to force a Game Seven in San Francisco.
There’s also the possibility that the Golden State Warriors would want to win the title in front of their home fans, as they have in the past. As a result, backing the Celtics is the right play for this situation.Follow us on Twitter
