Boston Celtics Betting Preview


The Celtics (2-0) have gotten off to a very nice start to open up the season, granted it is only two games, but they have shown the depth and talent that has made them a favorite to come out of the Eastern Conference. 


All-Star Jayson is showing Boston fans why he has the makeup to be in the running for league MVP when it is all said and done. He has averaged 28 points so far this season, but more importantly he has shown the ability to go right to the rim and get others involved. 


Veteran center Kristaps Porzingis looks reborn as he has netted 23 a clip this season, and if he is healthy, he is going to be a vital piece of that offense. He also adds a steady veteran presence on the floor and in that locker room. Boston's perimeter has also played well too. They have another shot at keeping their opponent under 100 points, because Washington does not have a ton of explosive scorers.


The Celtics must clean up their rebounding as they got dominated on the glass against Miami, even though they won that game, 119-111. They love to get up and down the floor and this could be a high-scoring game from the Celtics' perspective. 


Washington Wizards Betting Preview


The Wizards (1-1) are not expected to do much this season and they do not have a ton of expectations according to many odds makers. They do not have the great scoring of one Bradley Beal, who is in Phoenix as part of the new look Suns. 


They have issues scoring inside and they do not have a ton of depth as well. Small forward Kyle Kuzma has netted 23 a game and has shown he is going to have the offense revolve around him. He is a nice player and pumped in 31 in a 113-106 win over Memphis for their first triumph of the season. 


Washington's best chance at winning this game as well, is hitting their shots from beyond the arc. They can get hot, and they have some streaky shooters on their team. But, with all being said, they also need to guard the three-point shot as well.
