The over is 7-3-1 in Celtics last 11 overall. The over is 4-0 in Thunder last 4 overall. The Celtics are 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Oklahoma City and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Boston Celtics are still one of the hotter teams in the league, both SU and ATS, and that includes winning their last five games by an average of 14.6 points. The Oklahoma City Thunder can't get out of their own way during this lengthy losing streak, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 13.8 points. Two teams heading in completely different directions, so while the line is thick and both clubs on the end of a back to back, I have to side with the Celtics.
