Why the Thunder Will Cover (+12.0)
The Thunder has played teams consistently close so far this season, only losing three times by double digits. Of those three losses, just one came on the road. 12 points is a lot, even considering that OKC is played in the second game of a back-to-back. I’m thinking OKC keeps their hot scoring streak going when they take on the Celtics.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (228.5)
The Thunder has found their shooting stroke lately, and as a result, they’ve been scoring at a much higher pace than OKC fans are probably used to. As for the Celtics, they tout the highest-scoring offense in the league. Both teams are decent defensively, but still, they’ve given up their fair share of points at times. As a result, I’m thinking the over is the way to go on the point total for tonight’s matchup.
