The Celtics are hoping that a change in venue can shift their momentum, following a collapse in New York that saw a 25-point lead evaporate. Jayson Tatum did most of the scoring as he saw Jaylen Brown limited to just 16 points. The tandem will need more than just one stepping up as the Knicks have suddenly won two straight. Julius Randle stole headlines with his “thumbs down” gesture, but Evan Fournier stole the game with a career-bets 41 points. Fournier along with Nerlens Noel are questionable for tonight’s game. The Celtics are only down Payton Pritchard to COVID, and will roll out a healthy starting five.

Under 207.5 (-110, FanDuel)

OddsShopper can shed light on how a game will flow based on player projections alone. Awesemo has the majority of players in this game going under their points projections which could easily correlate into a lower-scoring game. The Celtics are out for revenge and are healthy, so ultimately better and more aggressive on defense. The Knicks are already down Kemba Walker and Derrick Rose, so losing Fournier would significantly limit their scoring options. Marcus Smart and the Celtics backcourt should have an easier time limiting points from Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley. We also expect a big bounce-back game for Brown with Tatum taking a step back in our projections. It’s the second time in as many games these two teams will face each other, most likely adding up to a slower pace and less scoring. Both teams are just better at defending than they are scoring – with the Knicks having the 6th best scoring defense, and the Celtics sitting at 12.

Julius Randle Under 21.5 Points (-106, FanDuel)

Most of the Knicks just sat back and watched Fournier go to work against Boston, leading people to believe that Randle will go off tonight. This is one of the top plays in this game on OddsShopper with an xWin 66% chance of going under and an xROI of 25% based on the -106 return. Awesemo has Randle projected for 19.2 – nearly 2.5 points less than the book offering. Maybe it’s the move to Boston from New York or facing the same team for the second time in a row, but all signs point to Randle struggling from the floor tonight. His 30-point outburst two games ago seems to be the outlier over the past nine games.

Jayson Tatum Under 25.5 Points (-105, FanDuel)

Another strong under play on OddsShopper that also correlates into an under play with the game. Tatum is projected for 23.2 points on Awesemo; coming off a huge scoring night and seeing his partner in Brown struggle. Both are expected to return somewhat to normal, which means Tatum could take a backseat to Brown dropping 30 on the Knicks. Boston also has a near-full squad with a bunch of healthy options that haven’t been there this year – at least all at once. Tatum may see a double-team or two, and will be able to find some open shooters. Then there’s the Celtics just not being as good as the Knicks, and having bad nights means your stars aren’t always that bright. OddsShopper sees a 64% chance of an xWin and an xROI of 22% – making this a strong play for the under.

RJ Barrett Under 18.5 Points (-115, DraftKings)

The third under play that connects a lower-scoring slugfest in Boston. OddsShopper like Barrett under 18.5 down to 16.5 if you follow Awesemo’s 16.3 point projection. By going under the 18.5 and only laying the -115, we sacrifice very little, hence a 66% xWin chance of it going over and an xROI of 24%. Lost in the heroics of his final-second buzzer-beater was a bad shooting night for Barrett. The Knicks may lean on him more tonight if they are down Fournier – which is actually a bad thing in this case. More volume isn’t going to translate into more points if Barrett is struggling from the floor. The Knicks are back to getting a volatile RJ Barrett, and it’s simply not worth taking a risk based on his recent shooting.

Alec Burks 4+ 3-Pointers (+330, FanDuel)

Our Long-Distance Launch struck gold last night with the Bucks, so let’s keep it moving here with Alec Burks. Fournier sitting out only helps this prop, but playing certainly won’t hurt it. The Celtics are going to slam Fournier with everything they have in the backcourt, and Burks should get the biggest benefit. He’s only hit one three in his last two games combined but the looks are there – four against Boston and five before that against the Pacers. We have Randle and Barrett going under their projections and a weakened backcourt for the Knicks – a great combination for Burks to get the green light to launch!
