Boston Celtics vs Oklahoma City Thunder Predictions 3/21/2022

 

On Sunday, Oklahoma City had an opportunity to win for the first time in a long time against lowly Orlando, but its downward spiral continued with yet another horrific shooting night. The Thunder established an early 25-17 advantage but battled the remainder of the half, with the Magic leading 45-43 at halftime.

 

Orlando regained the lead for good with under 2:30 remaining on a Franz Wagner putback. The Thunder were led by Darius Bazley, who scored 18 points, and Isaiah Roby, who had 11 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks.

 

The Thunder offense had a bad night, shooting 32.6 percent from the field, including 13/48 from three, while turning the ball over 16 times.

 

Despite its overall troubles, Oklahoma City is a decent option against the spread at 42-25-4, and it covered in three of its last four matches, including close games against Miami and San Antonio. The Thunder are 33-35-2 in overs after their game against Orlando finished far under the betting total, snapping a four-game streak of unders.

 

Oklahoma City’s offense struggled, averaging 103.1 ppg while shooting 50.5% from two and 31.6% from three, all of which rank 27th or below in the NBA. The Thunder had a solid defensive record, surrendering 111 ppg while permitting opponents to shoot 53.2% from two and 35.4% from beyond the arc.

 

  • The Oklahoma City Thunder is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Oklahoma City’s last 6 matches against Boston.
  • Oklahoma City is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 matches at home against Boston.

Boston Celtics vs Oklahoma City Thunder. The NBA pick for this game is the Boston Celtics. Even though the Thunder did well against the spread in general, this is a complete mismatch against the NBA’s hottest club, which is still dealing with ailments.

 

Oklahoma City already had a limited offense at full strength, and now they are lacking so much productivity that scoring against the NBA’s greatest defense will be impossible.

 

Both teams are playing back-to-back games, but Boston did not have to journey as far and was in cruise control, whereas Oklahoma City’s depth is currently shredded.

 

The Thunder have enough talent to compete with certain teams right now, but Boston is just too difficult to manage. The Boston Celtics will win by a predicted score of 113-98.
