Why bet on the Boston Celtics?

Boston has been brilliant in the series. Like a great racehorse, the Celtics have adjusted to the specific pace of each game, which is the main reason they’re on the verge of knocking out Indiana and marching to another NBA Finals.

In Game 1, the pace was electric. All the C’s did was score 133 on their way to a 133-128 win. In Game 2, the pace was slower, which allowed Boston to step it up on the defensive end in an impressive 126-110 victory.

Then in the third game, Boston outlasted home squad Indiana, even though Aaron Nembhard scored 32 on the Celtics’ way to a 114-111 win. Boston can play any style in the series, which means Indiana’s options are limited.

Why bet on the Indiana Pacers?

The Pacers are playing for pride. Although Tyrese Halliburton is likely to sit with a sore hamstring, T.J. McConnell and Andrew Nembhard showed that the Pacers aren’t going to roll over.

Indiana gave it their all but failed to get by the Celtics in Game 3. But the tough play led to a cover victory that the Pacers could repeat on Monday night. The line is a massive +7.5. So even though Indiana may not win, they could win against the spread, which for us, would be a victory.

Pacers vs. Celtics 2024 NBA Playoffs Game 4 Prediction

This can go one of two ways. Either the Celtics relax and allow Indiana to come close to winning the game or the Pacers fold and suffer a blowout loss to Boston.

The former is the likelier outcomes. NBA squads tend to relax when they get up 3-0. This is especially true if the fourth game, like Celtics versus Pacers on Monday night, is on the road. In this case, Boston won’t relax enough to lose the game, but they shouldn’t cover what has become an enormous spread.

Boston beat Indiana by 5 in Game 1. In Game 3, the Celtics won by 3. It makes no sense why the Celtics are close to -8 point favorites when Indiana will give it their all in the fourth game. The Pacers could win this outright. Taking the points is the optimal play.
