Nuggets vs Celtics Free Pick
NBA Odds, NBA Predictions, NBA Free Picks
The Celtics host the streaking Nuggets in Boston tonight. The C's have not looked great lately, going just 3-7 in their last 10. On the other hand, did you see Nikola and the Nugs demolish LA the other night? Denver has some issues themselves but they've looked unbeatable at times. Denver is one of the best scoring teams in the league with an 18-7-1 record going over the posted number. Without Marcus Smart, the C's have been a liability on defense. This could be a good game to take advantage of.
Book this, and get it while it's still at 220.5. The Nuggets are an over machine, you mentioned the total record before -- and they've also hit the OVER in their last four of five. The Celtics have allowed triple digits in eight straight games -- I really think their defense takes a massive hit without a physical guy like Marcus Smart on the floor. Both of these teams are bottom half of the league in defending the jump shot and that's where Denver ranks sixth overall right now. Boston doesn't play well down low and it could be a feeding frenzy for Nikola. Hammer this over.
Prediction: Nuggets 110 Celtics 118
