BET 76ERS +110.
The Sixers are coming off a monster game at home after shooting lights out and Embiid almost scoring 50. Expect them to build off this terrific night while the Celtics arrive from Minnesota fresh off an overtime loss. This game will be tight, as most of the recent matchups between these franchises are, but the Sixers will come out on top.

LEAN UNDER 227.5 (-105).
Both teams are playing on only 1 day’s rest and are coming off strenuous games with the Sixers in a high-scoring, fast-paced game and the Celtics in an overtime game. As a result, there will be a slower pace.
