Nets vs. Celtics Prediction & Pick

Brooklyn finally looks like the team we all expected to finish near the top of the Eastern Conference standings. Winners of four straight, the offense is humming thanks to a fierce run from Kevin Durant. Durant is averaging 33.6 points per game in his last five and the offense has scored 110+ in each game since.

Unfortunately for Brooklyn, the Celtics are on a similar offensive tear. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have each averaged at least 32 points per game in their last four and tout the league's highest-rating offense in 2022. This game will be a shootout, but the duo of Tatum and Brown are in too much of a groove for Boston not to take home the W.

Final Score Prediction: Nets: 117 | Celtics: 125

Nets vs. Celtics Best Bet

Get your popcorn ready for this matchup. The game features three players averaging at least 30+ points per game and a pair of lineups that both rank top-11 in offensive rating.

We're circling this stat for tonight's best bet. FanDuel Sportsbook has odds up for players to score at least 30+ points. Tatum's -105 odds aren't worth the payout but you can nab Brown to score 30+ at +185. That's a great payout for Sunday.

Bet: Jaylen Brown to Score 30+ Points (+185)
