NBA Betting: Boston Celtics vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

NBA betting Friday features an intriguing inter-conference matchup as the Boston Celtics travel to Minnesota to meet the Timberwolves.

NBA betting fans have been impressed with the Boston Celtics and their 9-2 straight up start to the online basketball betting season.  Perhaps they have been too impressed as all of that NBA betting activity on Boston has caused the Celtics to have a slow 4-7 start against the NBA betting lines.

Boston, like most defending champions in all sports, will suffer a loss of NBA betting value as more of the casual public will want to get down on a team that is a powerhouse and loaded with superstars, regardless of the actual NBA betting value merits.

Boston did fare much better against the NBA betting odds in road action with a record of 3-2 against the NBA betting spread.  The Celtics have gone under the NBA betting total 7 out of 11 games including 3 out of 5 on the road.

Boston went through a 4-game losing streak against the NBA betting line from November 10-15 although they won 3 of those games straight up, a great example of their inflationary prices on the NBA betting board.  Boston is ranked 22nd on offense and a rock solid 3rd on the NBA betting defensive stat charts.

Paul Pierce led the Celtics in scoring to start the season with an average of 21.0-points per game.  Rajon Rondo led in assists with 6.6-per game while Garnett was the leading rebounded to start the NBA betting season with 9.8-per game.

Minnesota, who’s General Manager Kevin McHale was a Celtic great from their 1980’s glory days has become one of the worst teams in the NBA.  Minnesota began the online basketball betting season with a record of 1-8 straight up but 4-5 against the NBA betting lines.

Minnesota was just 1-3 against the NBA betting spread in home action to start the year.  The Wolves went under the NBA betting total in 6 of their first 9 games, including 3 of their first 4 at home.  Minnesota began the NBA betting season ranked 17th on offense while ranking 25th on the NBA betting defensive stat charts.
