Game Information

Denver Nuggets (8-3) at Boston Celtics (8-3)

Date, time (TV):
Location: TD Garden


Boston Home-Court Advantage

Despite both teams entering Friday’s contest with the exact same 8-3 record, the Nuggets vs Celtics odds and spreads are in favor of the Celtics for a number of different reasons. For starters, Boston has home-court advantage where they have been dominant this season with a 4-1 record while the Nuggets are entering the third game of their four-game road trip.

The Nuggets are 2-5 against the spread on the road and the Celtics are 3-2 against the spread at home.

Both offenses have been clicking over each team’s last four wins which is why this total is so high. The Nuggets averaged just over 121 points per game in that span, while only giving up an average of 109 points per game.

Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr are the team’s primary scorers, but Aaron Gordon has been playing some of his best basketball as of late, scoring a career-high 56.9% from the field.

Similarly, throughout the Celtics NBA schedules, they are averaging just under 123 points and giving up an average of 113 points in their last four games. Their defense has suffered without Robert Williams in the lineup as he is the strongest back-court player.

Targeting the Total in this Game

We would recommend targeting the total in this game. After opening at 233, the line has dropped to 229. We agree with this movement but wouldn’t bet this much lower than where the line is right now.

These are two of the best NBA teams in the league and while their offense has been showing out and their defense has been slacking a bit, we expect both defenses to pick up the intensity in this matchup of two of the league’s top teams and scoring to stay under 229.
