Prediction: Bet the Over 224.5

New York comes in after a win over the Cavaliers, but that was at home. While the Knicks are at a respectable 14-10 on the road, it is difficult for any team to travel to Boston. Boston is currently 18-5 at home, while the Knicks are 0-2 in Beantown. Since December 2018, six of seven meetings between these teams have been won by the Celtics.

Boston will play their third game in four days here, but they will be motivated by being at home, with Brown likely back to assist Tatum. The Celtics have the advantage as they handle business and return to the win column. With that being said, -9 is to many here; my best bet in this game is to bet the over at 224.5!

Potential earnings

If you are betting on the over of 224.5  the payoff will be decent, and I think this game goes over. For example, a few days before the game, the odds range to -110 if you are betting on the over. If you bet 100 on the over, the payout would be 91 dollars, which means you would get back the 100 you bet and the other 91 for winning the bet.  The best bet is betting on the over in this game.
