Boston is finally healthy and while they have some tough NBA Odds for their game against the Wolves, Boston’s defense should improve enough to help them cash.

 

   Boston Celtics vs Minnesota Timberwolves  

 

The Celtics haven't had the best start to the season, but the biggest reason seems to be that they had several players injured. Al Horford and Jae Crowder just returned from lengthy absences and now they are -2 NBA Odds favorites on the road against the Wolves.

Minnesota has been playing better too, but they have only beaten teams they were supposed to. Wins against the Sixers, Lakers, and Magic are good for building blocks for this team, but a healthy Celtics team is a different challenge.

The Wolves are only 3-3 SU and ATS at home this season, while the Celtics are 4-3 ATS on the road. While they are pretty evenly matched, the Celtics’ bench will be the unit that ends up winning this game. Horford should do enough to slow down Karl-Anthony Towns and Isaiah Thomas should give Ricky Rubio fits in this one.

While it’s tough to lay the points with a road favorite, with Boston healthy, their defense should improve enough to get the win and cover. Lay the points for your NBA pick.
