Brooklyn Nets vs Boston Celtics Game 3 Betting Picks, Predictions, Odds & Lines

The Brooklyn Nets look championship-worthy as they take on the Boston Celtics in game 3 of their first-round NBA betting playoff series. The Nets breezed to a 130-108 victory in Game 2 at TD Garden, putting the Celtics (37-38 SU, 35-40 ATS) in a precarious position as they head back to Boston for Games 3 and 4.

The Brooklyn Nets are opening up as the six-and-a-half-point favorites. However, since the betting line opened, the Nets are currently laying seven and a half points on the Boston Celtis at most of the USA online sportsbooks. The opening total for this game is 226.5. The odd number 227.5 can also be seen in some places, too.

Notes On The Brooklyn Nets

When the Brooklyn Nets’ big three are rolling, they can be a difficult team to beat. But when their Eastern Conference No. 2 seed racks up points from other sources on offense, it becomes an even greater challenge for others in their conference. Shooting seven three-point shots is just what Joe Harris did in Game 2, scoring 25 points as the Nets won by a large margin.

All eyes will be watching Kyrie Irving. He was a player for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets. He went to TD Garden twice before, but there were no fans because of COVID-19. There will be a small crowd this time. They will probably say bad words to him because he is averaging 22 points.

Notes On The Boston Celtics

The Celtics survived a scare when Jayson Tatum suffered an eye injury in Game 2. His right eye was bloodshot during the post-game interview and he will be back in action Friday night against the Brooklyn Nets at TD Garden. He has averaged just 27.8 points per game over the first two games of the series (down from his regular-season average of 25.6 points) and is shooting just 25.5 percent from the field and 21.1 percent from three-point range

Tatum needs to be better. He could do this, too, if he gets some help. There are four players on the team who are averaging at least 13 points in the series. But Boston is shooting poorly from the floor and from three-point range against New Jersey, which has a bad defense during the regular NBA betting season.

The Nets’ defense has been outstanding in the Eastern Conference Semifinals and it’s a problem for the rest of the East.
