Wednesday Betting Play
Brooklyn Nets 9-8 at Boston Celtics 12-4
Opening Line: Celtics -8 and 225.5
Current Line: Celtics -6.5 and 225.5
We have an insanely strong strength of play for this Wednesday night slate. With Kyrie Irving continuing to sit for the Nets, their pace and scoring is down, and the Celtics remain in the bottom third of the league in pace. My estimate when this total opened was that it would be in the 211-214 range, and this is a spot to take advantage. For Boston Celtics, only 2 of 16 games to date would have went over this total, while the Nets have only seen 1 of 6 games that Irving has missed have gone over 225.5, including five straight. This under might be the best play we’ve gotten this year to date. If you’re feeling aggressive and want to parlay the game, the Celtics are the choice, but I’m just sticking with the under. Two teams pacing very slow simply have odds posted expecting a pace up spot and it would make no sense if it happened.

The Clippers (-2) owned the first half and cruised to a 16 point halftime lead. They never allowed the Mavs to make it interesting and won by 15 in a one sided game.
The win brings us to 22-15 on the year.
