Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics Betting Pick

A pair of Eastern Conference teams are set to mix it up on Tuesday at the TD Garden in Boston. The Philadelphia 76ers are on the road at the Boston Celtics. The Philadelphia 76ers have seen some big time struggles as of late. The 76ers lost again on Sunday, and have now lost in seven of their last ten games. The 76ers are now 33-24 on the season, which is fifth in the Eastern Conference.

For Boston, they continue to play red hot basketball. The Celtics have won eight straight games. Boston is 9-1 in their last 10 games, and have been running away with the Eastern Conference. The latest Celtics win was on the road at the Knicks on Saturday.

The Boston Celtics are massive favorites in this game. Boston is -12.5 at home.

Injuries Causing Struggles

The loss of Joel Embiid has been an absolute killer for Philadelphia. He had played in 34 games, and was scoring more than 35 points per game. Since he went out on January 30th for an extended period of time, the 76ers have gone 4-7.

Philadelphia has scored under 100 points in each of their last two losses. The 76ers offense has dropped outside of the Top 10 in scoring. Philadelphia is now scoring 117.3 points per game. Tyrese Maxey is the top scorer for the 76ers with 25.8 points per game.

The 76ers will start their March schedule on Friday, as they host the Charlotte Hornets. Following that, Philadelphia will go on the road for back to back games. First, they are in Dalla,s and then they will play at Brooklyn.

Red Hot Boston Celtics

For Boston, they just continue to cruise right through the regular season. The Celtics have one of the best point differentials through 58 games in the history of the league. Boston has not lost a game since February 1st to the Lakers. In their current eight game winning streak, just four of those wins were by single digits.

Jayson Tatum continues to put his stamp on the season. A possible Most Valuable Player award winner has played in 54 of the games for the Celtics, and is scoring nearly 27 points per game. Kristaps Porzingis and Jaylen Brown are having monster seasons as well. Those two are combining for an additional 42 points per game.

Boston will remain at home after this game. The Celtics will welcome the Dallas Mavericks to town on Friday and Golden State visits on Sunday.

Celtics Win Again

The Boston Celtics are too good to lose a game like this. Philadelphia is a mess without Joel Embiid in the middle. He is one of the single most important players for a team, and their lack of success without him is proving that. We like the Celtics to take the lead, keep the lead, extend the lead and win the game.

We like Boston to win this game by 10+. Our final bet for this game on Tuesday is the Boston Celtics -12.5 over the Philadelphia 76ers.
