The NBA odds and betting lines set for this game only indicates that online bookmakers are expecting a tight matchup in OKC. Both teams are 9-1 in their last 10 games and playing at a midseason form. Watch out for an exciting duel in the backcourt, pitting in Kemba Walker against Chris Paul.
Moneyline: Bet on the Celtics at +105. Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward could all be suiting up Sunday afternoon, giving the Celtics more ammunition in their lineup.
ATS: Pick the Celtics to cover the 1.5-point spread. Underdogs or not, the Celtics understand that they need to win this type of games in convincing fashions at this juncture of the season. And I do believe they will deliver by beating the Thunder by at least five points.
TOTALs: Pick the UNDER at 218 points. These are the two of the top defensive teams in the NBA. Expect a slow pace in this game with either or both teams barely surpassing the 100-point mark.
