@AustinsProps' NBA Tuesday Play of the Day - 1/3
Boston Celtics @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Looking at tonight’s board for the association we get 3 matchups all which seem possible to be competitive. This game however is my favorite play of the night, and that is the Thunder covering + 9 at home. I’ve said this all season long that the Thunder simply cover spreads. They know how to keep games competitive and this season they sit 21-15 against the spread. I love this spot for them at home and I think they can keep this within 9 tonight. OKC and Boston faced off earlier this season in Boston where the Celtics came out on top winning 126-122. This was a highly competitive matchup and I think with OKC at home we should see another one similar to that.
Thunder got embarrassed against the Sixer in their last outing, and I think they take that personal and come out and show a much better performance. It’s no secret that Boston is elite so it will be a difficult task, however to win by double digits against this gritty Thunder team I just don’t see happening tonight. The Celtics are coming off a double digit loss as well to the Nuggets so I look for struggles to continue tonight.
Give me the Thunder +9 at home!
OKC THUNDER +9 @ -110
