Charlotte Hornets at Boston Celtics Vegas Odds & NBA Picks
After losing their first home game in ten contests against the Warriors on Saturday, the Boston Celtics rekindled with victory in Beantown on Monday over the Nets and will attempt to collect back-to-back victories as they get ready to resume competition in a matchup against the Charlotte Hornets. The two Eastern Conference belligerents are scheduled to lock horns in the third installment of a four-game season series Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. ET and live from the TD Garden in Boston, MA.
The two sides have split the first two meetings with each squad winning their tilts on home soil while covering the line as winners. Prior to the setback to the Hornets last November, the Celtics had dominated the rivalry winning seven consecutive contests over the Hornets while going 6-0-1 ATS during that stretch. While going 8-4 against the line in their last 12 home games (11 wins), the 4 games Boston didn’t cover were in the last five home games. They enter this affair as 7-point underdog, thanks to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total set at 218 points.
