Basketball Betting – Boston Celtics at Minnesota Timberwolves

February 16th, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting on Friday has the defending NBA champion Boston Celtics in Minnesota to face the Timberwolves. Boston will be a solid road favorite in NBA betting odds in this matchup. Let’s take a look at the betting number for this game.

Basketball  schedule information shows that this is the second game of a back-to-back for Boston. They had a tough home game last night against Detroit. That could put them in a letdown spot here against the Timberwolves according to basketball experts. The Celtics have won 6 of the last 10 games against Minnesota but they are only 5-5 against the basketball line. At Minnesota, the Celtics are 3-2 in the last five games according to basketball betting stats.

Last season both of the games between the two teams went under the basketball total. What is interesting about the NBA betting total in this series is that the previous six games had all gone over. Last season both games were very close with the Celtics winning by two points at Minnesota, and winning by just a single point in Boston according to basketball  numbers.

The Celtics always get a great deal of respect on the basketball line because of their reputation. Normally defending champs in the NBA are overvalued in basketball betting and that may be the case with Boston many times this season. Even though the Celtics won eight of their first nine games this season they were only 4-5 against the NBA betting line. On the other side, the Timberwolves lose a lot of the time straight up but they can stay within the basketball number. They lost six of their first seven games this season but they were 3-4 against the basketball line in those games.

The Celtics definitely have more talent than Boston but laying big points on the road is never easy in NBA betting. Gamblers will be leaning toward Boston in this game but Minnesota might get some play in basketball since the Celtics did play last night.
