Celtics Have Already Covered Seven Times in 2017-18

No Gordon Hayward, no problem for the Boston Celtics so far this season. Riding a six-game winning streak, the C’s will try to keep up their winning ways in Oklahoma City on Friday.

MyBookie opened the Thunder as 6-point home favorites with a total of 204.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Celtics are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Thunder’s last nine games.
  • The visiting team is 7-0 ATS in its last seven games in this matchup.

This matchup features the two teams in the NBA with the highest point differentials in the 2017-18 campaign, with the Thunder (plus-10.9) and Celtics (plus-9.2) leading the Association in that category. A strong defense has been a major reason for their success, as Boston has held each of its past six opponents to 94 points or less.

Oklahoma City capped a 2-1 SU road trip by holding the lowly Chicago Bulls to 28.2 percent shooting in a 101-69 triumph before beating Milwaukee 110-91 on Wednesday. Russell Westbrook was fantastic against the Celtics last season, evidenced by the superstar averaging 41 points in two games vs Boston a year ago.

When it comes to winning straight up, the Celtics haven’t been a great wager in OKC over the years. In the Celtics’ last nine trips to Oklahoma, Boston is 1-8 SU. The C’s do rank as the best bet in the NBA at 7-1 ATS, however.
