NBA Predictions: Can the Celtics dominate versus Nuggets? 12/13/17

Are the Boston Celtics the right play on their home court tonight against the Denver Nuggets at 7:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Celtics are set as a 6.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is 207 points.

Denver comes in with a 15-12 overall record and 11-16 ATS after a 103-84 victory Tuesday night at the Pistons. Boston is 23-6 overall and 20-8-1 ATS following a 108-85 loss at the Bulls. The Nuggets went 2-0 sraight up and 2-0 ATS in two meetings last season. The over-under went 1-1.

The Celtics were without Kyrie Irving for the loss at Chicago. Al Horford paced Boston with 15 points, five assists and four rebounds. Marcus Smart had 13 points, four assists and two rebounds. Jaylen Brown accounted for 13 points and eight rebounds. Terry Rozier added 13 points, five assists and three rebounds. Boston trailed 56-42 at halftime.

Denver is 4-11 ATS in its last 15 meetings in Boston. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Boston.

Bet on Nuggets vs. Celtics

With Irving back in the fold, the Celtics should take care of a Denver team on a back-to-back. The Nuggets struggle to defend point guards and Irving is fantastic at creating his own offense. With a strong defensive game plan nightly, Boston should wear down a Denver team that is under-staffed with a couple key players out in Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap.
