Bet on Celtics vs. Mavericks

The Celtics are a team on a mission of destruction, a very unexpected development after losing Gordon Hayward for the season in the opener. But the development of Brown and Tatum, along with the leadership of Irving, has turned the Celtics into a premier team in the Eastern Conference once again. Don't get too caught up in Dallas' blowout over Milwaukee. This is not a very good Mavs team and Boston should have its way on the road.
