With the Atlantic Division title all but wrapped up the Boston Celtics will take on one of their trailing teams on Tuesday night as they hit the hardwood at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks. Get your NBA odds for the matchup at Bovada Sportsbook.
The Celtics have locked up a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with a 7-3 record in their last 10 games, and there's now little chance that either the Knicks or the Philadelphia 76ers will be able to catch them for top spot in the Atlantic Division.
However, there's still much on the line for the Knicks on Tuesday, as they try to hold off the Milwaukee Bucks for one of the bottom seeds in the Eastern Conference with just a couple of weeks left in the NBA's regular season.
To get the win on Tuesday, though, the Knicks will have to buck their recent form against the Celtics – they've won just once in the past 10 meetings between the teams, with Boston going 6-4 against the spread on the NBA betting odds at Bovada Sportsbook in those contests.
When they last met on March 4 the Celtics won a 115-111 high-scoring affair, covering the 1-point spread at home in the process. Rajon Rondo had a triple-double for Boston that night, picking up 18 points, 20 assists, and 17 rebounds.
Paul Pierce also had a strong game that night against the Knicks, pouring in 34 points, while Carmelo Anthony had a team-high 25 points in that losing cause for New York – who still had Amare Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin in their lineup.
On the latest NBA 2012 Championship Odds at Bovada Sportsbook the Celtics sit at 16/1 to win the championship, which has them behind each of the Heat, Thunder, Bulls, Spurs, and Lakers. The Knicks are currently at 30/1 to claim the title this season.
