Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?

The Warriors have one of the most threatening front courts despite falling behind in results lately. As a team, they average 117.5 points per game on 47.3% shooting. They make 56.5% of their looks from close and mid-range while making an incredible 37.4% of their attempts from deep. Leading scorer Stephen Curry registers nearly 30 points per game in 30 appearances. The pair of shooting guards, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole, are averaging north of 20 points per game and should help take some of the load off Steph in this coming game.

Defensively, the Dubs rank 26th in scoring with averages of 117.9 points per game on 46.9% opponent shooting. They do fairly well against shots within the perimeter and from downtown, limiting competitors to 54.2% and 36.0%, respectively. Golden State also logs competitive rebounding figures and averages 51.7 total boards per game.

Steve Kerr will get the full force of his starting lineup. Leading scorer and top rebounder Steph Curry and Kevon Looney are locked and loaded. Meanwhile, floor general Draymond Green and two-way player Andrew Wiggins prepare to step up their defensive efforts.

Why Bet on the Boston Celtics?

Jaylen Brown awaits game-time decision after picking up a groin injury. If the team decides to sit him out in this one, we expect to see several adjustments to the Celtics’ lineup. Robert Williams III is likely to take over for Al Horford, while the latter moves to a forward position and Marcus Smart covers for Brown. Jayson Tatum will spearhead the attacking end for Boston with his team-best averages of 31.09 points and 8.26 rebounds per game.

This is going to be an offense-heavy game. The Celtics have the second-best scoring record right now at 118.8 points per game on 47.8% shooting. They hold a pair of top-ten shooting records, including 57.5% from two-point and 37.1% from deep. More than that, the squad shows plenty of confidence from the line. They hit 83.2% of their free throws which played a crucial role in some of their previous wins.

Boston and interim head coach Joe Mazzulla keep the system tight with impeccable defensive figures. As a team, the Celtics limit its opponents to 112.3 points per game on 47.0% shooting. They keep internal defense tight and hold teams to 53.4% two-point shooting while maintaining decent perimeter defense that limits opponents to 35.7% from downtown.

Warriors vs. Celtics Expert Betting Prediction

Home advantage and better results in the last two weeks make the Celtics a favorite to win here. But, they might have a tougher time holding off the Dubs if Jaylen Brown remains out of the lineup. With the Warriors running hot and cold while producing erratic road results, this might be a harder test than when they faced Boston earlier this season. The Celtics are the more consistent team here, and we know the crowd will be eager to get some revenge after last year’s NBA finals. Covering the spread should be a simpler task for the Warriors, but a win needs every ounce of skill and determination from the visitors.
