Boston Celtics at New York Knicks odds, picks and predictions


The Boston Celtics and New York Knicks open their seasons against one another Wednesday night. Tip from Madison Square Garden is set for 7 p.m. ET (ESPN). Let’s analyze BetMGM Sportsbook’s lines around the Celtics vs. Knicks odds and make our expert NBA picks and predictions.

Season series: First meeting; Knicks won 3-1 last season.

The Celtics had a busy offseason after a disappointing exit from the playoffs in Game 7 on their home floor by the Miami Heat. They re-signed G Jaylen Brown to the largest deal in NBA history at the time. They also traded G Marcus Smart, G Malcolm Brogdon, C Robert Williams and F Grant Williams and acquired C Kristaps Porzingis and G Jrue Holiday. So they sacrificed a lot of their depth, but brought in 2 talented players. We’ll see how long it’ll take for everyone to gel together.

The Knicks added G Donte DiVincenzo to help with their outside shooting and traded away F Obi Toppin. So they are largely return the same group that went 47-35 and pushed the Heat to 6 games in the playoffs. They took 3 of the 4 games last season vs. the Celtics with 2 of them coming in overtime.
