Oklahoma City Thunder vs Boston Celtics: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

All looked well for the OKC Thunder ahead of their game last night against Philadelphia, but then just hours before tip-off the Sixers decided to bring back Joel Embiid. The Thunder couldn’t do much to contain the reigning MVP, he scored 24 points and dished out 7 assists in a 109-105 defeat for OKC. Very discouraging for a team that’s playing a 2nd night of a back-to-back in Boston tonight. Granted, OKC did win the first meeting of the season 127-123 back in early March, but we still don’t know if they’ll have Shai Gilgeous-Alexander available tonight. He has been bothered by a quad injury lately, after sitting out last night’s game there is a chance he might suit up here. The Thunder could definitely use him, they’ve got just 4 wins in the last 9 meetings against the Celtics.

It's only a matter of time when the Celtics clinch the number 1 seed throughout the entire postseason, getting a win over the Thunder gets them a game closer to achieving that goal. They’re coming off a convincing 118-104 win at Charlotte on Monday night and although they didn’t cover as 18.5 point favorites, the Cs will still take the win. With the game seemingly under control early, the starters didn’t have to exert themselves too much so the rest advantage is on Boston’s side coming into this game. Containing SGA will be a priority, he had 36 in that first meeting in early March and was the main reason why the Thunder got the win. Jrue Holiday and Derrick White are eager to lock him up and I think they have a pretty solid chance of doing so with him not being at 100% here.

Boston Celtics Point Spread Prediction

Celtics -7.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Boston enters the game on a 10-game home win streak, they’ve also covered the spread in 14 of their last 20 games and are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs Western Conference opponents. OKC has a positive record in back-to-backs this year, but they’ve lost their last 2 in this scenario to Houston and the Lakers. I’ll take Boston to cover here.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Boston Celtics Total Points Prediction: Over 229.5

Over 229.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

The flood gates opened when these two met about a month ago, the game finished with 250 points scored and obviously cashed on the over. That’s been the general trend between these two opponents, the over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings and an average of 237 points per game is being scored. The two teams are on a streak of 6 straight meetings cashing on the over as well. Defenses are slow to get into sync on 2nd nights of back-to-backs sometimes, this could very well be the issue for the Thunder as they face the hottest offense in the NBA. It’s worth pointing out that in 4 of the last 6 games on no rest, the Thunder have cashed on the over. Boston has also been consistent on the over lately, with that bet cashing in 6 of their last 7 games overall. Their offensive numbers have stayed consistent in the last 10 games at 127 points scored per 100 possessions. During that same stretch, the defense ranks only 15th in the league allowing 112.7 points, if the Thunder are smart they’ll look to push the tempo here. OKC has the 7th fastest pace in their last 10 games, I think backing the points is the way to go here.
