Oklahoma City Thunder vs Boston Celtics - NBA Picks Of The Day

Russell Westbrook

The best way to attack this game might be a teaser. With the Celtics coming off a game last night and both teams playing solid defense this season, their pace shouldn’t matter too much here. The NBA Odds are ripe for the picking!

Thunder vs. Celtics 

Boston is coming off a nice win last night in Indiana, but now they head back home for another tough game on no rest. Stopping Russell Westbrook is going to be the main concern for the C’s tonight, but with that might come a lower scoring game.

These two teams both rank inside the top 12 in the league in defensive efficiency and both teams have been solid at cashing the under in their respective positions tonight.

The Thunder have cashed the under at 9-3 on the road this season, while the Celtics are 6-4 cashing it at home. OKC and Boston have cashed the over in two straight games, but the Thunder had been on a seven-game under cashing streak before their last two games. Plus, Boston overall is 17-11 cashing the under this season.

However, I’m not done, because I’m using a teaser on just this game and going with the Thunder taking points too. With Boston coming off a back to back and playing their third game in four nights, I see the Thunder keeping this one within single digits. Teasing them to +9 is a bargain, even with the NBA Odds shortening on Boston overnight.
