Heat vs. Celtics Season Tip Off

October 29, 2012

Although the Cavaliers and Wizards will technically beat them by an hour, the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics will help tip off the 2012-13 campaign in style Tuesday night. The rivalry between the two Eastern Conference giants is no secret, but the days where the two are equal on the NBA moneyline may have come and gone.

While the Heat lead the NBA futures with 9/4 odds of winning the championship this season, the Celtics trail behind at 14/1. Considering that Miami’s LeBron James is looking as comfortable as ever after winning his first ring, and that the once-proud Celtics core is yet one year older, the discrepancy is no surprise.

If Boston is to cover the spread against the league juggernaut, they’ll need solid contributions from not only superstar point guard Rajon Rondo, but veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. New this season, don’t forget, is former Mavericks guard Jason Terry.

Beyond the box score, however, is a storyline that may be more relevant to fans than to bettors. The game marks Heat shooting guard Ray Allen’s first against his former team.

With emotions running high, and opening day excitement to boot, the matchup may be one of the most intriguing of the week. Get in on the fun today.

Sportsbook Advisor take: The line opened at 6.5. This is a tough line to pick one way or another but you have to take the superior team at home minus the points. Also, the fact that Wade and Lebron have been extremely active in the offseason means they are in great shape. Take Miami -6.5
