Betting on the Philadelphia 76ers (+10.0)

Regular Season Record: 54-28

The Sixers won Game 1 to the tune of a 119-115 score in Boston, thanks to the heroics of James Harden, who discord 45 points in that game. Philadelphia did not have Joel Embiid in Game 1 but he can be available in Game 2. It’s best to monitor his status ahead of Wednesday’s contest.

The Sixers have won eight of their last 10 games. They are also 6-3-1 against the spread over that same stretch.

Betting on the Boston Celtics (-10.0)

Regular Season Record: 57-25

Jayson Tatum scored 39 points in Game 1 to lead the Celtics, but his effort obviously was not enough to lead Boston to a victory. Jaylen Brown added 23 points while Malcolm Brogdon had 20 points coming off the bench. Marcus Smart posted 12 points and seven assists but hurt his team with six turnovers. Expect Boston to be better at managing the game in Game 2 after a disastrous Game 1.

The Celtics have won in eight of their last 10 outings. They have also covered the spread in seven of their last 10 games.

Writer’s Prediction

The Celtics win, 114-111.
