5* Celtics/76ers Blue Chip Top Play: UNDER 184.5
With the Celtics listed as just a 2.5-point favorite on the road at Philadelphia, I believe oddsmakers are expecting a much closer game than what some might be thinking. Neither one of these teams features a dynamic offense and the 76ers play at a very slow tempo, which they should be able to control at home. Boston's defense should be very effective, as they come in playing on three days rest. The 76ers have been playing much harder over the last week and shouldn't lay day tonight against a division rival. Both teams should struggle to get to 90 points tonight, which is exactly what you look for with a total in the mid 180's.
The UNDER is 6-2 in the Celtics last 8 games vs a team with a winning % below .400 and 6-0 in the 76ers last 6 home games vs a team with a road winning % less than .400. BET THE UNDER!
