NBA Basketball Betting – Warriors Look To Hand C’s Second Western Conference Loss
Despite having team leader Kevin Garnett back in the starting lineup last night, the Boston Celtics, (41-10 SU, 31-18-2 ATS, 24-26-1 O/U) turned in one of their worst defensive performances of the season against the Denver Nuggets last night, allowing the high-scoring Nuggets to score 124 points in their 124-118 loss to A.I, Melo and company.
The Celtics will seek to avoid just their second loss to a western conference opponent when they take on the Golden State Warriors, (32-21 SU, 22-31 ATS, 30-22 -1 O/U) in matchup featuring another high-scoring team that doesn’t play much defense at all.
Garnett, who had been out since Jan. 25 with a strained abdominal muscle, had just four points on 2-of-7 shooting in nearly 21 minutes, but didn’t sound too concerned with the outcome of last night’s contest.
“It was good to get back,” Garnett said. “It felt good.”
Despite falling to the Utah Jazz 119-109 last night, the Warriors seem focused on tonight’s matchup with the best team in the league.
“We have a big game (Wednesday) and some good games coming up, and we need to get back to getting our rhythm,” Warriors guard Baron Davis said.
The Celtics have gone 7-3 in their last ten games despite last night’s loss and are a solid 6-3-1 against the spread in their last ten while the Warriors are a dismal 0-5 against the spread in their last five games.
Here is a look at some of tonight’s key trends, followed by my analysis and NBA Betting Free Picks.
The Celtics are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning percentage above .600.
The Celtics are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Pacific.
The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest.
The Over is 4-0 in Celtics last 4 Wednesday games.
The Over is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 games playing on 0 days rest.
The Underdog is 12-3 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
Analysis: Take the Celtics to cover this spread NBA bettors after dropping last night’s contest to the Nuggets. While the Celtics defense has been somewhat lacking recently, they are playing much better offensively. With Garnett back in the lineup again tonight, I say take the Celtics to get back to their winning ways against the struggling Warriors.
