BURNS NBA TOTAL OF THE WEEK (TODAY!)
Philadelphia vs. Boston,
05/03/2018 20:30 EDT,
Score: 103 - 108
Total: -115/+207 Under
I'm playing on Philadelphia/Boston UNDER the total (10* TOTAL OF WEEK). Off a relatively high-scoring opener, I expect to see increased defensive intensity in Game 2. Note that this is the highest O/U line that the Celtics have seen since they faced the Suns back in March. (That one had an O/U line of 208.5 and finished with 196.) The 76ers, who allowed 117 in the opener, have been excellent at bouncing back from a poor defensive effort with an improved defensive display in their next game. Thats led to the UNDER going 10-4 the last 14 times that they'd allowed 115 or more in their previous game. Before becoming too blinded by the Game 1 score, keep in mind that the last regular season meeting between these teams produced just 169 combined points. They'll get more than that tonight, just not enough to finish above the generously high number.
