Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics Preview & Picks

Philadelphia are tipped to cover as a betting underdog on the road.

The 76ers have been one of the most reliable spread picks so far this season, and they are facing a Celtics team who could be missing key talent.

  • Philadelphia 76ers are 12-6-0 ATS this season
  • Philadelphia 76ers are 5-3-0 ATS on the road
  • Boston Celtics are 2-5-0 ATS in their last 7 games
  • The Under has cashed in 9 of Boston's last 12 games

Head To Head

  • Boston Celtics lead the all-time series 334-247
  • Boston Celtics won 117-107 when the two teams last met on November 15

Philadelphia 76ers Form

Philadelphia head to Boston on the back of their fifth defeat in nine games, which has left them 12-6.

The 76ers saw an eight-game win streak come to an end with a 132-126 defeat to Indiana and a 117-107 loss to Boston.

They rebounded with a 126-116 victory in Atlanta, and then moved on to Brooklyn where they blow out the Nets 121-99.

Philadelphia failed to make it three-in-a-row as they were beaten 122-119 in overtime by Cleveland, and that was followed by a 112-99 loss at Minnesota.

The 76ers responded with a 127-123 win in Oklahoma City and a 138-94 demolition of the Los Angeles Lakers, only to lose 124-114 at New Orleans on Wednesday night.

Boston Celtics Form

Boston have cooled a little over the past couple of weeks, but they are still on a great run that has taken them to 14-4.

The Celtics embarked on a six-game win streak in November that was eventually ended by a 121-118 overtime defeat in Charlotte.

They bounced back immediately to win a big Eastern Conference clash with Milwaukee, 119-116, only to then suffer a 113-96 defeat in Orlando.

Boston avoided back-to-back defeats as they returned home to take down Atlanta, 113-103, last weekend.

The Celtics then followed that up on Tuesday night with a 124-97 beating of Chicago in the NBA In-Season Tournament.

Verdict

Philadelphia have struggled against Boston in recent years, but the Celtics could be missing Porzingis and Holiday, so we are taking the 76ers and the points.
