Celtics Best NBA ATS Pick Against 76ers

Before the season, the Philadelphia 76ers facing the Boston Celtics would have been a marquee matchup for a glimpse into NBA playoff odds. However, the 76ers are without Joel Embiid and the Celtics have won their last eight games, leaning the lines to slide in one direction.

In the 76ers last game, they faced one of the other top teams in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks, and lost 119-98. On the other hand, the Celtics continued their winning ways, beating the New York Knicks 116-102.

76ers vs Celtics ATS Pick: Celtics -12

It is pretty clear why many NBA predictions had the Celtics favored to win the East before the season started. This season, they have wasted no time to take complete control of the conference, with a 7.5-game lead over second place. That will be crucial when the playoffs start, giving the Celtics home-court advantage.

For the Celtics, playing in Boston has almost led to automatic wins. They have a 26-3 record at home but are only 15-14-0 when covering NBA spreads.

However, it is hard to pick against the Celtics at home, especially with how they are currently playing. In the win over the Knicks, everything was clicking. Jaylen Brown scored 30 points, while Kristaps Porziņģis added 22. Jayson Tatum didn’t have a dominant scoring night, with 19 points, but was one of three players, including Derrick White and Jrue Holiday, who had six assists each.

 

76ers vs Celtics Over/Under Pick: Over 231

Despite Embiid not playing in this game and the 76ers hitting the under in four straight games (seven of the last 10) the over is the best option for NBA picks. A big reason is that Tyrese Maxey still plays at a high level, even without Embiid.

In the loss to the Bucks, Maxey had 24 points and seven assists, which aligns well with his season averages of 25.8 and 6.4. If he can get some support from Buddy Hield or Tobias Harris, the 76ers offense should at least be able to handle themselves.

For the Celtics, they are scoring the fifth most points in the league with the highest offensive rating, so planning on them hitting the over in a big game makes sense.

 

76ers vs Celtics Player Prop Pick: Buddy Hield Over 12½ Points (-113)

While the 76ers might not keep this matchup close, the game should still hit the over. Most of that will be because of the Celtics, but the 76ers have decent offensive talent. Hield has struggled since the All-Star break but was playing great right after being traded to Philadelphia. He will need to be a big part of the offense in the future, and he is a great option for a player prop bet against Boston.
