Scott Foster will be in uniform to referee Wednesday’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics.
So… if you know, you know.
Tonight, the Celtics fit a handful of small-sample trends with Foster at the helm.
Foster has officiated 19 NBA Finals contests since 2010. The favorite is 14-5 straight up and 13-6 against the spread, covering the number by an average of four points per game.
A $100 bettor playing all NBA Finals favorites with Foster on the court would be up $624 — the most of any official.
And that’s not it!
Since 2016, home teams in Game 3 of any playoff series with Foster in pinstripes are a blistering hot 10-1 outright and 9-2 ATS.
Also, if history repeats itself, the Celtics will bounce back after getting blown out in Game 2.
Over the last three years, in either the Conference Finals or NBA Finals, teams fresh off a loss with Foster the lead official the following game are also 10-1 straight up and 9-2 versus the number.
The Celtics have played well in general the last three years when Foster’s active, going 7-2 both straight up and ATS in the postseason. The Celtics are 15-6 ATS since 2019 with Foster refereeing, with the regular season included.
Boston is a consensus 3.5-point favorite across the board. Meanwhile, the total ranges anywhere from 212.5 to 213.5 points.
