76ers Vs. Celtics Predictions – Christmas Day Basketball Betting
Philadelphia 76ers +4 (-110) vs. Boston Celtics -4 (-110)
The 76ers finally won a big game this season. Their 126-101 victory over the Toronto Raptors was finally the victory many of us wanted before actually putting this team as an Eastern Conference contender. They dropped two against Toronto before ultimately beat them, and they were also losers against Boston in the first game of the season. But a lot has changed since then. The Celtics are a 4-point favorite at home at MyBookie.ag. There hasn’t been a line movement, and I don’t expect any before the start of the game. The game total is at 222.5 points.
When Boston beat Philadelphia 105-87 in the season opener, the Celtics looked like the team to beat in the Eastern Conference. Fast forward to Christmas Day and Boston still looking for their best rotation out the lineup. Philadelphia added Jimmy Butler and became a deeper team with a star player who is not afraid of making plays during crunch time. Philly has won three of their last four games, but none was as important as the 126-101 win over the Raptors from last Saturday. The team clicked in all phases, with Joel Embiid scoring 27 points, Ben Simmons adding 26 while JJ Reddick helped with 22.
Boston lost three in a row before beating the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday. The Celtics have two good wins this season against Philly and Toronto, but those feel like a while ago. That victory over the Raptors was over a month ago. The Celtics will soon find out the Sixers are a different team from the one they beat during opening night. Jimmy Butler has added extra swagger and talent to a team that was already good enough to be an Eastern Conference challenger. I think they will steal Christmas in Boston. What’s the play? Sixers +4.
