The Celtics will keep this game close and within the number tonight! Boston has dominated this matchup in the last few years and I thought this number really stood out. My models and system have the Sixers closer to -3.5 to 4 point favorite. I believe the loss of Jimmy Butler for the Sixers will really take a toll on their offense this season. Kemba Walker signed with the Celtics this off-season and I believe he will take Boston to the next level. Philadelphia will rely heavily on Embiid and that will make their offense look very one dimensional. Celtics are 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 meetings.
Pick: Boston Celtics +6 (-110)
Best of luck!
