Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Pick
This game will take place at 8:00 PM ET in Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse
Why bet the Boston Celtics:
✅ The Boston Celtics are coming off a hard-fought loss to the Utah Jazz and will be looking to jump on this easy win over the Cavs. While the line is certainly a hefty one, I don’t expect the Celtics to have much trouble covering. The offense looked great a night ago and the defense won’t have to deal with much resistance against the Cavaliers.
✅ The Celtics will have the three best players on the court in this game in Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Kemba Walker. While the Cavaliers can be gritty and Collin Sexton can get hot, they don’t do it consistently and this is a Celtics team that is locking into playoff-mode. Expect a big win out of the Celtics here.
✅ The Cavaliers struggle to guard the perimeter and the Celtics can pour in the points in a hurry when you allow them to. Expect an early barrage of threes out of the Celtics as they stretch out to an early 10+-point lead in this one. The Cavaliers have seemingly taken their foot off the gas pedal and the Celtics aren’t a team to take easy.
✅ The Boston Celtics are 35-17-3 ATS in their last 55 Wednesday games.
✅ The Cleveland Cavaliers are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
The Pick: Celtics -9

This involves betting whether the Cavaliers and Celtics will combine for more or less than a certain amount of points. This number is set by the sportsbooks and will change as action comes in on both sides.
Using the same example as above, let’s say the Cavaliers vs Celtics over/under is set at 217.5 points. In this case, a wager on the over would call for 218 or more points scored while a bet on the under would require 217 or fewer points scored. Remeber, this is just a hypothetical total.

Betting the moneyline is a simple wager that a lot of casual fans like to entertain. Allowing you to ignore the spread and over/under, betting the moneyline comes down to simply picking which team will win the basketball game. The only problem with this wager is the occasional lack of value, which can be a problem at times.
Let’s say the Boston Celtics are slight favorites. In this case, they will have a (-) next to their name. It will indicate how many dollars you will have to lay to return $100. The Cavaliers will have a (+) next to their name and that number will tell you how much you would win on a successful $100 wager.
