The Celtics may be favored in NBA betting odds but the Thunder could definitely be the choice of many gamblers in this game. Basketball betting scheduling information shows that the Thunder are playing the 2nd game of a three-game road trip on Sunday.
The Celtics have won 6 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams and they are 5-4-1 against the basketball odds. At Boston, the Celtics have won three of the last four games and they are 3-1 against the basketball odds. NBA betting information shows that this will be Oklahoma City’s first trip to Boston as the Thunder. All of the previous meetings were when they were the Sonics. The teams met earlier this season in Oklahoma City and the Celtics won 96-83 and they covered the 9.5 point basketball betting number.
The Thunder have been a very solid team this season in terms of basketball betting. It has not mattered whether Oklahoma City is at home or on the road, they are a solid wager in NBA betting. Kevin Durant has led the team in scoring as basketball betting numbers indicate and overall the Thunder has a lot of young talent. The future looks bright for the Thunder overall and even right now they are a threat to cover the basketball betting number on a nightly basis.
Boston has slipped in recent weeks in basketball betting mainly due to injuries. Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and many of the bench players have been hurt. The Celtics have dropped from the top spot in the Eastern Conference and could end up third behind Cleveland and Orlando before all is said and done. The Celtics are still solid defensively, ranking 3rd in the league as basketball betting stats show. They are also right around the Top 10 in offense as basketball betting statistics indicate.
Six of the last ten meetings have gone under the basketball betting total. At Boston, the over/under is 2-2 in the last four games. The Thunder have been an over team on the road while the Celtics have been an over team at home so this game could go over the basketball betting total.
