Basketball Betting – New Jersey Nets vs. Boston Celtics

February 1st, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting odds on Wednesday have the Boston Celtics heavily favored at home against the New Jersey Nets. The Celtics have been virtually untouchable at home this season straight up and they have also been solid against the NBA betting pointspread.

Basketball scheduling information shows that the Nets are in the first half of a back-to-back as they host Portland tomorrow night. NBA betting scheduling information shows that the Celtics are in a home and home situation against New Jersey since they are at the Nets on Saturday. The Nets are the team in the difficult situation though as they have to play Portland tomorrow while the Celtics are off after tonight until Saturday’s game at New Jersey.

Basketball history shows that the Celtics have won 6 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams straight up and they are 7-3 against the basketball odds. Boston is a much different team than they were years ago, so going too far back in this NBA betting series might be counterproductive. The Celtics won 105-94 at home against the Nets last season, covering the 9.5 point basketball betting number.

Boston has been superb defensively this season as basketball betting stats indicate. The Celtics are also in the Top 10 in offense as basketball betting stats show. Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett can lead the team in scoring on any night and Rajon Rando has made the Celtics even better versus the basketball odds.

The Nets have been an excellent team on the road this season in terms of basketball. The Nets can usually get enough scoring with Devin Harris and Vince Carter to stay within the basketball betting number on the road. The problem for New Jersey is defense as they are in the bottom third of the league as basketball betting stats indicate.

Five of the last seven games between the two teams have gone under the basketball total.
