The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Boston's last 12 games.
Boston are 12-4 SU in their last 16 games.
Boston are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games at home.
The 76ers lost their last game on the road against the Knicks but they have won 8 of their last 9 games away from home and have covered the spread in 7 of the last 9 games vs Celtics. The Celtics are coming from a win but it was against the Pistons who are the worst team in defense in the NBA. They haven't been that great lately and have failed to covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games at home. I think the 76ers can keep this game close so I'll take them with the points.
PICK: 76ers +4 (-110)
