The Nuggets have been playing great so far this season as they have lost only 3 games and have won 6 of their last 7 games but they have struggled against the Celtics losing the last 5 head to head games. The Celtics have won 5 of their last 6 games and are 10-2 in the last 12 games at home vs Nuggets. The Nuggets have had a much easier schedule than the Celtics and it's hard to go against Boston at home so I'll go with the Celtics to win and cover the spread.
PICK: Celtics -4.5 (-110)
