The Boston Celtics will host the Oklahoma City Thunder as OKC continues their east coast swing. This will be a nationally televised game on ABC that will start at 1pm EST. Check out the NBA odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Celtics are coming off of a thrilling overtime victory vs. the Hawks on Friday night by the score of 107-102. The win was the 5th straight for Boston who has played surprisingly well in the absence of all-world PG Rajon Rondo. Will the Celtics be able to keep up with the young dynamic legs of the Thunder, most notably lightning quick PG Russell Westbrook? If they can they will improve on their 34-27 record and continue their climb up the playoff standings.
The Thunder also won on Friday night when they beat the Bobcats down in Charlotte by a score of 116-94. The Thunder have won 4 games in a row on this east coast swing which is certainly impressive. They sit just 1.5 games in back of the Spurs in the Western Conference. It should be a good battle down the stretch for the #1 seed in the West between these two superb teams.
The Celtics are 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, while the Thunder are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall and 20-7 ATS in their last 27 home games.
Boston being a 10 point underdog at home is definitely eye popping, but it speaks to how good the Thunder has been lately. Still I expect the Celtics to keep it close so take them +10 but first read online sportsbook reviews.
