Boston Celtics vs. New Jersey Nets – NBA Betting

January 12th, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting odds heavily favor the Boston Celtics at home versus the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday. The Celtics have dominated the Nets recently, both straight up and against the basketball betting pointspread. Let’s take a look at some of the numbers for this basketball betting matchup.

NBA betting trends tell us that the Celtics have won 9 of the last 10 games against New Jersey and they are 8-2 against the basketball odds in those games. The Celtics have won three of the last four games against New Jersey in Boston and they are 3-1 against the basketball odds. The teams have already met three times this season and the Celtics won each time. The game in Boston was a blowout for the Celtics as they won 118-86, easily covering the 9.5 point NBA betting number.

New Jersey has been somewhat disappointing this season but on the road they are still valuable in terms of basketball betting. The Nets are almost always getting points on the road in NBA betting and they have a winning record against the spread. They have talented players like Devin Harris and Vince Carter who can impact the basketball betting pointspread. The Nets are playing for the future though so younger players are getting more time and that makes New Jersey and iffy proposition at times in terms of NBA betting.

The Celtics are around the .500 mark versus the basketball betting line at home this season. Boston’s offense is good but not great and that makes covering big numbers tough. The Celtics have the league’s second best defense as basketball betting stats show and that does help but sometimes covering double-digit numbers is too much to ask. It also hasn’t helped that the Celtics have been dealing with injuries for the last couple of months. When healthy, the defending NBA champions are still very formidable in basketball betting with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo.

Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. At Boston, the basketball betting over/under is 2-2 in the last four meetings. With Boston having a tough defense and New Jersey playing some younger players the under could be the way to go.
