The Celtics get here with a 10-3 record overall and are 5-1 at home ranking 1st in the Atlantic division. In their last game at home they beat the Detroit Pistons 117-108.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Boston's last 7 games.
Boston are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Boston's last 7 games against Oklahoma City.
The Thunder have been playing great offense since their All-Star Gilgeoux-Alexander returned with the team as they have scored over 130 points in their last 3 games but the problem is they're allowing the same amount of points. The Celtics have won 6 games in a row and are 5-1 in their 6 games at home this season. I expect a high scoring game as both offenses are on fire right now and the over has cashed in 5 of the last 7 head to head games. Take the over.
PICK: Over 228.5 (-110)
