It is the front half of a back-to-back basketball betting situation for both teams as Boston finishes the season at home versus Washington tomorrow while Philadelphia is at Cleveland. Here is a look at the matchup between Boston and Philadelphia.
Bet on basketball trends slightly favor the Celtics in this game. Boston has won six of the last ten games with Philadelphia and they are 5-4-1 against the basketball odds. The Celtics have won three of the last four games at Philly but they are just 2-1-1 against the basketball odds. The teams have met three times this season and the Celtics have won all three although they are 2-1 against the bet on basketball odds. Boston won big at home 110-91 and 102-78 but at Philadelphia they just squeaked out a 100-99 win in February as bet on basketball results show.
Boston and Philadelphia are both in the playoffs but their exact positions could still be up in the air when they meet on Tuesday. The Celtics have been just above .500 this season on the road versus the bet on basketball odds. Boston has a great defense that is 2nd in the league as basketball betting statistics show. Their offense has slipped a little in recent weeks with the injury to Kevin Garnett. Boston still has a lot of weapons who can impact the bet on basketball odds though. Paul Pierce leads them in scoring and Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen can also score.
Philadelphia has been nothing special at home this season versus the bet on basketball line. They are right around the .500 mark. Philadelphia does not have the defense that Boston has but they are not bad, ranking just outside the Top 10 as bet on basketball stats indicate. The 76ers are below average on offense but they usually stay in games and have a chance to cover the basketball betting number.
The over/under bet on basketball total is 5-5 in the last ten meetings between the two teams. The basketball betting total is 2-2 in the last four games at Philadelphia. The 76ers have been a solid under team at home for gamblers who bet on basketball.
