NBA Best Bets | Expert Picks for Saturday, Feb. 24

Celtics vs Knicks

by Chip Chirimbes

Boston Celtics -6 (-110)

The NBA's best team the Boston Celtics (record wise) has won a season high seven games in-a-row and look to win their fourth game this season over the Knicks.

New York is a legitimate threat when they are healthy but right now the are missing key personnel.

The Knicks just ended a 4-game losing streak as their deep bench provided the points needed with Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson ad OG Anunoby all sidelined.

New York is led by Jalen Brunson and they are 19-8 SU at home and with NYK's injuries it is just too much to overcome. Take BOSTON!

Nets vs Timberwolves

by ASA

Minnesota Timberwolves -7.5 (-115)

We don't mind the fact that the Wolves are playing the second night of a back-to-back here as they had plenty of rest with the All-Star Break. Minnesota is coming off a home loss to the Bucks last night and should be motivated for a bounce back win here.

The T'Wolves have the best spread record in the NBA when coming off a loss with a 11-5 ATS record, and they've won those games by an average of +13.3PPG. Brooklyn is in a freefall in the midst of a 1-6 SU run their last seven games.

On the season the Nets are 9-15 ATS on the road and they've lost 9 of their last ten away from home. Seven of those ten losses were by double-digits with an average loss margin of 17PPG. The big advantage the Wolves have here is with their defense. Minnesota has the best defensive efficiency rating in the NBA, while the Nets rank 21st.

Minnesota has an average MOV at home this season of +9.4PPG which is 4th best in the league. We like the Timberwolves by 10+ today.
