4* NBA *BEST BET* on Celtics +3.5
Motivated by back-to-back double-digit defeats, and further fueled by three consecutive losses to the Thunder, expect the Celtics to leave it all on the floor this evening. Doing so will give them an excellent chance to win this game outright.

The Thunder are 3-1 on the road but are fortunate to be that good as three of these contests have been decided by six points or less and two by two points. The Celtics are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games versus a team with a road winning percentage that's greater than .600.

Recent trends are good, but long-term trends are better, especially with a team like Boston that has had the same nucleus for a while. Consider that the Celtics are 164-138 ATS after 1 or more consecutive losses under coach Doc Rivers and 152-125 ATS as an underdog under him. Bet Boston.
