The NBA today, Golden State Warriors (28-28) travel to Boston to play the Celtics (30-26) at TD Garden. The Tip-off is scheduled at 8:30 p.m. ET at TD Garden. Below are expert betting pick analysts preview of the Warriors v Celtics game predictions, betting odds and lines, with NBA Pick and Parlays.
Golden State is in good form, having won four straight and five of six (5-1 against the spread), three of which were by at least 16 points. The Warriors would be the 9th seed in the West. Being 3 games ahead of the 11th-place New Orleans Pelicans and almost certain qualifiers now for the postseason play.
Boston is also rolling right now as five straight victories and seven of the last eight games (5-2-1 ATS). This recent run of form has propelled the Celtics’ to a 4th-place tie with the Atlanta Hawks in the East. Now 2 games in front of the 7th-place Miami Heat.
Last time on the boards – The Celtics started as 2.5-point road favorites, and won the first meeting with the Warriors this season 111-107 way back on Feb. 2.

NBA Best Bet Today – Prediction – Warriors v Celtics, Picks, ATS and Parlays, Lines and Odds
Expert Prediction – Warriors 118, Celtics 112
NBA Betting: Money line (ML)
I like how the WARRIORS (+135) match up with the Celtics. Golden State has the seventh-highest 3-point attempt rate and Boston is 18th in defensive 3-point shooting percentage.
Also, the Warriors are ninth in defensive rating and the Celtics are 7-11 overall with a minus-2.4-point ATS margin vs. teams top 10 in defensive efficiency, according to usatoday.com.
Furthermore, Boston has a clear edge on the wings with PF Jayson Tatum and Brown, however, Golden State’s wings and PF Draymond Green should make life difficult for the Celtics’ top two scorers.
Finally, whilst the Celtics are on a hot streak, Golden State has PG Stephen Curry going gangbusters with the team playing good basketball in April.
Curry is killing it with averages of 39.0 points per game on 75% shooting (.556/.477/.926) with a plus-19 net rating, 6.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game for April. In the first Warriors-Celtics game this season, Curry scored 38 points on .571/.500/1.00 shooting with a plus-32 net rating, 11 rebounds and 9 assists. He looks likely to repeat that based on recent form.
The Best Bet experts have a slight “LEAN” for today’s game to the WARRIORS (+135) for a quarter unit, if at all mostly because Curry is hot and Golden State is a high scoring team, so the plus points is a smarter wager for tonight.

NBA Betting: Against the spread (ATS)
Expert Pick Comment: A Strong Bet Prediction BET WARRIORS +3.5 (-110), the experts are hot on this, wager heavier than or instead of Golden State’s money line.
NBA Betting: Over/Under (O/U)
Betting Experts call – PASS with a “lean” to the Over 227.5 (-110) because Boston’s offense has looked good in the last week or so, the Celtics lack an interior presence with Williams out and Curry is going off this month.
