The addition of Al Horford really helps this already undervalued Celtics team, but for their opening game, the Celtics are huge favorites on the NBA odds. However, the total has been driven up by sharp action and with the improvements on offense for the Nets, this should be an up and down game with a ton of scoring.

  Brooklyn Nets vs. Boston Celtics


Boston is coming into this season trying to build off of their successful 2015-16 season and tonight they get a bunny of a game against the Brooklyn Nets. Brooklyn is likely going to be one of the worst teams in the NBA this season and while I am tempted to lay the points here with Boston, the -13 1/2 spread is scaring me away.

However, the total is where the action and the value is for this game. After opening at 207 1/2 on the overnight lines, the total has been quickly bet up to 211 1/2. However, the sharps apparently think this one is going over and I believe them, hence, my NBA pick. The Nets are going to try and incorporate a faster style of play this season, while the Celtics have always been a team to run and gun on occasion, especially at home. With Al Horford comes more offensive firepower for Boston and the signing of Jeremy Lin on the other side gives Brooklyn the distributing they need to be successful here on offense.
