Denver has lost two of its first three on its five-game road trip. This young Nuggets team will have played six of its first seven games on the road this season. The 2-3 start was largely expected, but the Nuggets don’t want to fall out of the Western Conference Playoffs race early. A win in Boston to get back to .500 would be a solid win for Denver in the early part of the season.
The Celtics have been without center Al Horford the last few nights, as he suffered a concussion in practice earlier in the week. Boston hasn’t been a world-beater, but should take advantage of an incredibly soft part of their schedule.
The Celtics will be favored in five of their next six games (maybe not against the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis on November 12th). They won’t be a certain underdog until they host the Golden State Warriors on November 18th. Now is the time for the Celtics to flex its muscles into the upper echelon of the Eastern Conference.

According to OddsShark.com, the Celtics will be laying 7.5 points at home to the visiting Nuggets. The associated moneylines are Boston -350 and Denver +290. This game’s over/under comes in at a combined 211 points.
Since Denver is playing the second game of road back-to-backs, it’s only right that the Celtics would be favored in this game. Laying 7.5 points is a lot in the early part of this NBA season, but Boston is the better team.
The Celtics haven’t played since Thursday’s tight road loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Look for the Celtics to rebound and win this one. However, this is an opponent that Denver could upset on the road.
