Why Charlotte Will Win

Few online horse betting experts or other casual basketball fans probably thought that the Boston Celtics would lose again to the Charlotte Bobcats on Tuesday, March 12. Yet, it happened, and it happened in rather decisive fashion. The Celtics' offense simply did not show up, as the Bobcats cruised to a shockingly easy 100-74 win in the state of North Carolina, marking the second straight time that Charlotte has handled Boston in the midst of an otherwise-horrible season for the Bobcats.

For a period of time, it looked as though Boston had solved the problems that it had to face on the court as a result of losing point guard Rajon Rondo. The team's level of resourcefulness reached great heights, and the Celtics moved steadily upward, not downward, in the Eastern Conference standings.

Their penchant for being erratic from game to game had seemingly become less of a concern, but after getting blasted by 26 points by the Bobcats in what was supposed to be a revenge game, following a Feb. 11 loss to Charlotte, the Celtics have to ask themselves: "Is Charlotte a terrible matchup for us?" It could very well be. Boston has no excuses, but it is simply playing at a very low level right now. Charlotte will be full of confidence when it takes the floor for this game. There's a tangible and real sense that the Bobcats just might be able to pick up where they left off on Tuesday.

Why Boston Will Win

The best betting sites will tell you that even though the Celtics are not a model of stability, they're far better than the Bobcats. Boston is still coached by Doc Rivers, one of the two elite active coaches in the NBA alongside Gregg Popovich of San Antonio. Also, the Celtics will make the playoffs, while Charlotte has a lot of work to do to merely avoid having the worst record in the NBA by season's end.

Moreover, this game sets up extremely well for Boston. The Bobcats and Celtics played earlier in the week in Charlotte. The simple fact that this matchup now switches to Beantown will give the Celtics a natural edge, even though Charlotte won the prior meeting by 26 points. The other thing to realize, though, about this game is that Boston will not have played since Wednesday, while Charlotte will have played Friday night on the road in Toronto.

The Bobcats will have to go through customs and some other travel hassles while the aging Celtics get two full days and Saturday morning in which to sleep in their own beds and rest their creaky bones. Boston is still a vulnerable team in many ways. The team had played well in previous weeks without star point guard Rajon Rondo, but it’s absurd to think that losing Rondo was a net-plus for the team. Boston can be victimized by good opponents, but of course, Charlotte is simply not that caliber of team. The Celtics should be able to take care of the Bobcats in this week's rematch.

Who Will Win

Ultimately, the fact that Boston gets Charlotte at home and in a favorable travel-and-rest situation should enable the Celtics to finally solve an unexpected nemesis. Boston will be angry, and it will take out that anger on Charlotte in a decisive win.
