The Celtics and Nets resume their regular season schedules on Thursday night at the Barclays Center, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

The game tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on TNT.

The Nets were one of the hottest teams in the league entering the All-Star break, winning 10 of their last 11 games. Brooklyn already has one win over the Celtics this season, a 123-95 blowout on Christmas Day.

The Nets will be without Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, while the Celtics expect Marcus Smart to make a long-awaited return to the court.

Advice and prediction

The long layoff from the All-Star break could prove to be a great equalizer for the Celtics on Thursday, but it’s hard to bet against this Nets team with James Harden performing at an MVP level once again. Brooklyn has covered the spread in each of its last ten wins, and while the Celtics closed the first half with a four-game winning streak of their own, Boston is just 4-6 ATS over their last 10. Take the Nets -2.

BetMGM is also offering a Lion’s Boost bet for the game worth taking a look at. The Nets’ team total 120+ has been boosted from +105 to +130 – for a team that is averaging 121.1 points per game.

Prediction: Nets 124, Celtics 113
