Philadelphia 76’ers (+) @ Boston Celtics @ 7:35 ET
Big points here considering that Boston just got back from a tough road trip where they played 4 games in 6 days where all the games were played west of the Mississippi. Additionally, the Celtics have another road game on deck at Chicago before finally settling in for the All Star break. That means this game is part of a 6 game stretch in 9 days for Boston with all 6 games being played in a different city!
Tough stretch for sure for the Celtics and, even if they do get up big here they are likely to start resting guys late in the game as they get ready for tomorrow’s game with the Bulls. That said, the Sixers have great backdoor cover potential too because this is simply a team that will not quit! Philadelphia is off of a big road win at Charlotte on Monday and the 76’ers have now covered 18 of their last 24 games. The Celtics have failed to cover 6 of their last 8 home games including 4 straight. Also, Boston has gone 2-9 ATS this season when they enter a game on a winning streak of 3 games or more. The Sixers are 13-6 ATS this season when off of an upset win as an underdog and there will be no let-up from the 76’ers here as they look to get one more upset before the All Star break. Philly is off tomorrow, Boston is not, grab the big dog here!
Free Pick on Philadelphia plus +10.5
