Advice and prediction

The Nets are 5-0 against the Celtics this season including the regular season, and Brooklyn has gone 5-0 against the spread in those games. Even with Jeff Green out, it’s hard to imagine this series resulting in anything but a sweep given the Nets’ firepower, and it’s a bit surprising that this line isn’t closer to -9 or -9.5. It’s also tempting to take the over here after these teams easily crushed the total in Game 2 – but be wary. The under is a surprising 4-1 in this matchup so far this season.

Take the Nets -7.5.

Prediction: Nets 117, Celtics 105
