Boston Celtics vs Denver Nuggets prediction

You can make a case for either the Celtics or Nuggets in a near pick em spot, as they're the two top teams in the NBA currently. With that said, the value is with the Nuggets at home and the free point. The Nuggets are 24-6 SU at home, and you're not getting them in the underdog spot often the rest of the way, especially at home. Jaylen Brown is also questionable at the time of this writing due to a pelvis injury. The value is with the Nuggets here, and they beat the Celtics on the road back in January. Give me the Nuggets.
