NBA Odds: Mavericks vs. Celtics
|Time | Channel||7:30 p.m. ET | ESPN|
The Boston Celtics host the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, with the home side looking to bounce back from Monday’s six-point loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. In that defeat, Boston couldn’t contain Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson, with the duo combining for 53 points.
On the other side, Dallas has been inconsistent, but has won three of its last five games with some impressive outings from Kristaps Porzingis.
The big man, who has scored 29 points or more in two of his last three contests, will be an important player for the Celtics to slow down considering their lack of depth at center.
Boston has gone 1-1 over two games since dealing away starting center Daniel Theis, but this included a game in which young center Moses Brown racked up an astonishing 21-point, 23-rebound double-double performance.
Though Boston won that game, it showcased the obvious flaw in the construction of this current roster. Yet, while Boston lacks center depth, Dallas lacks the much-more-important-in-today’s-league wing depth, which could spell big trouble for Luka Doncic’s squad.
It seems as if sharp bettors are more concerned with how the Mavericks will slow down the Jayson Tatum-Jaylen Brown duo, as our PRO Report shows wise guys backing Boston.
