NBA Race To 10 Bets For Feb. 22: Celtics To Continue Hot Streak vs. Bulls

Race to 10 bets (first team to score 10 points) are a fast and simple way to place bets for those who aren't exactly keen on waiting until the final buzzer sounds for potential gains or losses.

Here's a look at three Race to 10 bets you need to consider for the NBA's slate of games on Thursday, February 22, 2024:

*Race to 10 records accurate as of Feb. 15:

Boston Celtics Vs. Chicago Bulls

The Game: Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls, 8 p.m. ET

Boston Celtics-19234-21
Chicago Bulls+14822-33

Pick: Boston Celtics -192

The Boston Celtics actually lost the Race to 10 on Nov. 28 to the Chicago Bulls despite winning the game SU by 27 points.

During its ongoing six-game winning streak, Boston has gone a perfect 6-0 in the Race to 10 while Chicago is just 2-4 during that same stretch. Ride the hot hand at TD Garden and take the Celtics here.

New York Knicks Vs. Philadelphia 76ers

The Game: New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers, 7 p.m. ET

New York Knicks-10827-28
Philadelphia 76ers-11826-28

Pick: Philadelphia 76ers -118

The Philadelphia 76ers are incorporating some much-needed firepower in the form of Buddy Hield, Cameron Payne, and now veteran guard Kyle Lowry. The New York Knicks, meanwhile, are dealing with a slew of injuries to key players, and those healthy enough to suit up still aren't 100 percent either.

Home is where the heart is, and with New York not nearly as stout defensively as of late, Philadelphia will fire away early and often in this Atlantic Division battle. 

Brooklyn Nets Vs. Toronto Raptors

The Game: Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors, 7 p.m. ET

Brooklyn Nets-11324-30
Toronto Raptors-11326-29

Pick: Toronto Raptors -113

The Brooklyn Nets just recently relieved now former head coach Jacque Vaughn of his duties, and that tends to invigorate certain teams as they move forward with new philosophies and hopeful optimism.

Changing coaches doesn't change talent, though, with Brooklyn just 19th in offense and 0-6 in its last six games in the Race to 10. Bet with confidence in the Toronto Raptors north of the border at Scotiabank Arena.
