Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics Predictions & Tips

Philadelphia are tipped to cover in a losing effort in Boston.

The Celtics are the better and healthier team and should win, but the Celtics have been an unreliable spread bet despite some recent successes.

  • Boston Celtics have covered in just 4 of their last 12 games
  • Boston have failed to cover in 7 of their last 9 home games
  • Philadelphia have covered in 2 of the 3 previous meetings this season
  • The Under has cashed in 7 of Philadelphia's last 9 games

Head To Head

  • Boston Celtics lead the all-time series 335-247
  • Boston Celtics won 125-119 when the two teams last met on December 1

Philadelphia 76ers Form

Philadelphia come into this game in miserable form, having now lost 11 of their last 15 games.

The 76ers enjoyed a six-game win streak in January, but that run was halted by a 134-122 defeat in Indiana and they have struggled ever since.

That defeat sparked a four-game skid that was finally halted by a 127-124 win in Utah, but they failed to build on that as they lost their next four home games.

Philadelphia responded on the road with a 119-113 in Washington and a 123-121 victory in Cleveland, only to then return home and lose 109-104 to Miami and 110-196 to New York.

The 76ers avoided a third straight loss by beating Cleveland 104-97, but their joy was short-lived as they then suffered a 119-98 defeat at the hands of Milwaukee.

Boston Celtics Form

Boston enter this matchup as one of the hottest teams in the NBA, having now won each of their last eight games.

The Celtics have been on a relentless run since their In-Season Tournament loss in December, piling up the wins.

Their latest streak has come in response to a disappointing 115-96 defeat when they hosted the Los Angeles Lakers on January 27.

Boston bounced back to beat Memphis 131-91, Atlanta 125-117 and Washington 133-129 at home, and then went out on the road to down Miami 110-106 and Brooklyn 118-110.

The Celtics then beat the Nets at home, 136-86, before heading back out on the road to down Chicago 129-112 and New York 116-102.

Verdict

Boston are expected to take this, but their cover record is underwhelming and this Philadelphia team is playing hard despite some big injuries.
