Here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NBA games โฌ


Trail Blazers @ Celtics

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ
Celtics at the moneyline with Unibet (-128)

๐Ÿ“ˆ58.2% probability

The Celts sure did pull one out of the fire in their last game against the Spurs, riding Jayson Tatum's 60 points to overcome a 32-point deficit to win. Is a stirring win like that finally enough to get Boston to click into gear? Our data projections thinks so, backing in the Celtics with a 58.2% probability rating.

Suns @ Thunder


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Total points OVER 221 with PointsBet (-110)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 53.8% probability

Things took a turn for the worst - or best if you're the OKC GM - last night when the Thunder suffered their worst home loss in history against the Pacers to the tune of 58 points. With Phoenix heading to town, a similar scoreline may ensue which means we're taking the Over in this one.

But more than just that, when PointsBet is offering free bets like they are in the offer below, why wouldn't you take advantage!?

Raptors @ Lakers

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Toronto Raptors at the spread with BetMGM (+100)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 52.8% probability

Los Angeles finally have the band back together again, but that band is a little bit like the time I saw OutKast come out of retirement at Coachella in 2014; a little rusty and not as good as what they used to be.

That touch will come, though, both for LeBron and AD, but it will take some time. Given the fact that Toronto were able to keep with the Nuggets last night, the line once again appears pretty attractive for their trip to Staples.
