5* NBA HIGH ROLLER BOOKIE BEATDOWN
Boston vs. New Orleans,
12/28/2011 20:00 EDT,
Score: 78 - 97
Point Spread: -2½/-105 Boston
The Boston Celtics have opened the season with back-to-back losses at New York and Miami. They kept both of those games extremely close against two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.
New Orleans is a team in transition after trading away All-Star point guard Chris Paul. They managed to beat the Suns 85-84 on the road in their season opener on Monday, but I'm not buying the Hornets being a contender.
The Celtics don't want to fall to 0-3, which means they are going to turn up the defense and really make things hard for the Hornets in this game. Not only do I think Boston will cover the 2.5-point spread, but I think they will win this game by double-digits. BET THE CELTICS -2.5!
