Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks & Odds on NBA (02-24-2022)

At the onset of the season, Brooklyn was one of the hottest tickets on the NBA betting futures market. Since then, the Nets have been a flop. Much of the problem stems from their inability to get its best players on the court. And that is not going to change for the foreseeable future. Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and Ben Simmons have been out of the lineup. Only Irving stands a chance of getting in the lineup, but that is no sure thing. By contrast, the Celtics are playing their best basketball of the season.
