Let’s take a look at some of the numbers surrounding this specific game.
All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds subject to change.
SPREAD: Celtics -6.5
CELTICS’ MONEYLINE ODDS: -250
The Celtics have been favored against Western Conference teams 11 times throughout 2023-24. While they’re only 6-5 against the spread in those matchups, they’re 8-3 straight-up — which is what matters most for the home record play.
Denver has only been a non-conference dog once this season. While they didn’t win that matchup, one game isn’t much of a sample size to go off of.
However, there are a couple other stats that indicate the Nuggets won’t steal a win in Boston on Friday. Denver’s opponents are 5-7 ATS when facing the Nuggets on one day of rest, which is the setting Boston is in. The Celtics are also 8-3 ATS when playing on one day of rest. And lastly, the Nuggets are 1-4 ATS when playing on two days of rest.
