Both the Kings and Celtics have pretty poor defenses, but only the Celtics have a top 10 offense. Now that they are healthy they are going to poor it on the Kings and the NBA Odds for the total is just too low, making for a fine over play.

If there is one thing these two teams have in common as we head into the quarter mark of the season it’s that neither of them can play any defense. The Kings and Celtics rank in the bottom 10 teams in the NBA in defensive rating, as both are allowing about 109 points per 100 possessions.

Considering this game is being played in Boston, I think the Celtics will initiate the pace in this one. The Kings are playing pretty slowly and the Celtics aren’t playing fast by any means, but they are playing efficiently. Boston ranks eighth in offensive rating and against a poor defensive team like the Kings, they should feast on Friday night.

That’s why I was so surprised to see the NBA basketball lines sitting at 208 points for this one on the overnight lines. It’s simply too low of a number. This game could easily be the second or third highest scoring game of the night and there are potentially four totals that are higher than this one. Buy low, folks! Take the over!
