ESPN BET Bonus: Betting on the Celtics-Nuggets

For our bonus bet, we'll check out an NBA matchup tonight between the Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets. North Carolina users can't bet on this event, but the breakdown will explain how they can use bonus bets for any sporting event next week.

We're looking at a potential NBA Finals preview tonight with the Celtics vs. Nuggets. Boston has been the team to beat all season, while Denver seems poised to make another NBA Finals run. The first matchup was a thriller, with the Nuggets scoring a 102-100 victory in Boston.

Both teams suffered a tough loss on Tuesday. The Celtics blew a 22-point fourth-quarter lead in a one-point loss to the Cavaliers. Denver had a big comeback against the Phoenix Suns but fell in overtime.

Before Tuesday's loss, both teams were playing better than anyone in the league. Boston entered on an 11-game win streak, while Denver had six straight wins following the All-Star break. They should both be motivated to bounce back and take down one of the league's elite teams.

I'd recommend betting the underdog in this matchup. I'm looking at this game as a true toss-up, so take the team that presents more value. All bettors, including North Carolina users, should use their bonus bets on a plus-money market. If you bet on a bigger longshot, you'll earn more expected value over time.

Bettors outside of NC should have $25 bonus increments for the Celtics-Nuggets. A $25 wager on the Nuggets ML (+100) provides a $25 profit.

  • Betting Pick: Nuggets ML (+100)
