The Boston Celtics (30-25) travel to Barclays Center Tuesday to take on the Brooklyn Nets (29-24). Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Celtics vs. Nets odds and lines, and make our expert NBA picks, predictions and bets.
The Nets have been one of the most disappointing teams in the NBA. F Kevin Durant has played well this season, but his injury has been debilitating to Brooklyn and has aided in its current eight-game losing streak.
Brooklyn has only covered the spread one time in its last eight games. The Nets are now 20-32-1 against the spread (ATS) on the season. It could be another tough night against a rested and talented Celtics team with two members of their Big 3 sidelined.
Boston started off the season slow but has now won five games in a row, covering in three of those five outings. The Celtics are led by F Jayson Tatum and G Jaylen Brown who respectively rank 10th and 14th in points per game.
