Boston at Philadelphia

2 units on Boston -2.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

The Sixers have certainly stepped it up over the last three weeks as they are 10-3 over their last 13 games. But I am not sure that this warrants being this small of a dog in this one. The Celtics had a two-week hiccup, but the before and after tells the real story. The Celtics have surrounded a 2-7 stretch with a 38-2 mark! They have rattled off 11 straight and the Sixers have not covered a game in Philadelphia in each of the last seven matchups. The Sixers are playing well, but at 38-2 before and after their bad stretch, Boston is hard to ignore. The Celtics take this one.
