Celtics 1st half -3.5 at Nets – 1 unit
Boston’s been jumping on teams early during this soft schedule – 5 game winning streak and won 7 of 8. 4-1 ATS in the 1st half during this streak and led by an average of 10.6 ppg at half in those games. The Nets are a mess with the Kyrie/Harden situation and injuries to LaMarcus Aldridge and Nic Claxton are hurting them even more. 8 straight losses and getting blown out in the majority of them – 6 were by double digits. With the Celtics 1 game behind the Nets in the L column in the standings there should be no letdown and Boston’s been locked in taking advantage of inferior teams to make up ground. Even in the games Harden’s played in the Nets lost their last 4 with him and one was vs Sacramento. I like the Celtics to cover for the full game too at -6.
Celtics closed at -9.5 and won 126-91
