Boston Celtics vs Oklahoma City Thunder (By: Miyagi)
There are not a lot of things that need to be said about this bet as things are quite clear but I will offer my reasoning.
PG will score above 10 points today unless something very strange is about to happen. So, it comes down to his rebounds (or assists but that would also be strange).
Boston ranks 3rd in the league (behind the Rockets and the Bucks) in three-pointers attempted per game and that inevitably leads to extra rebounds for their opponents thus their opponents average 35.2 defensive rebounds per game. The Celtics are also having huge issues securing their own defensive rebounds this season and as a result, their opponents average 10.3 offensive rebounds per game (Celtics used to be the worst team in the league in that part just a few weeks ago).
The Celtics have big guys that can shoot the ball from distance and that helps their cause of stretching the court efficiently, while they are also using a high pick and roll, so they will keep Adams busy in defense tracking his man and he will find himself away from the basket quite often but the same goes for Westbrook who will have a hard task against Irving defensively and it would not be wise for him to spend extra energy to sprint around the basket in every occasion just to secure some extra, easy, rebounds. PG is not about to have a much easier task against Tatum but he will find himself closer to the basket way more often and he should make sure to secure those rebounds.
PG had a total of 4 Double-Doubles last season (regular season) and two of those were against the Celtics in their 2 meetings! In their first meeting with the Celtics this season, he had 8 rebounds along with 22 points.
They offer us 4.35 times our money in case PG collects 10 rebounds. Is that good? No, that's not good, all things considered, that's great and personally, I would take that risk every single time.
