1* on 76ers -3.5
These teams have split two meetings this season with the 76ers winning at Boston by 5 points back on Dec. 20th in a game where Embiid dominated with 41 points and 10 rebounds. The 76ers just had their 7 game winning streak snapped at home on Wednesday as the Hornets beat them by 11 points. These 76ers are a very strong 4-0 ATS L/4 games off a double digit loss. The Celtics have won three games in a row including a blowout 19 pt win their last game at the Pacers. The Celtics are a putrid 1-6 ATS L/7 games following a ATS win and they're just 1-5 ATS L/6 games at Philly. I really like the 76ers at home here in a bounceback spot vs a team that is just not on their level when Philly has all their main guys and they do tonight. We have the better defensive team, the team that takes better care of the ball (less turnovers) & we have the team with the better offensive efficiency. The bottom line for me here is that I see good value here laying just -3.5 points in this spot and I have the 76ers winning this game by 6-7 points in this spot.
