Portland Trail Blazers vs Boston Celtics Tips:
Although the Celtics will play their second game in a row, we’ll support them too, as the Trail Blazers don’t look like themselves without Damian Lillard.
Yes, the visitors may play without Jaylen Brown, but his return to the floor is quite likely, especially since no one has reported a serious injury.
Our first prediction and bet are the handicap (-1.5) for the Boston Celtics with the odds of 1.95 with the VBet bookmaker.
The Boston Celtics had a productive game against the Utah Jazz, but that was an exception.
83 points in the previous game were catastrophic. We probably shouldn’t expect the upcoming game to be spectacular.
Our second prediction and bet are total match points under 220.5 with the odds of 1.67 with the Vbet bookmaker.
