Now really isn’t the time to be putting your hard-earned money on the 76ers to succeed. The time will come when they get back on the horse we suppose, but this isn’t likely the matchup for all of that to happen. Philly has scored 87 points or fewer in three out of four games, and the one exception featured an easy-to-figure dud of a game for the Golden State Warriors here in the City of Brotherly Love. Boston meanwhile, continues to at least put up solid efforts, though we aren’t necessarily sure how it is doing it. This is a team that we love to back for its grit and tenacity. The talent really isn’t there, but the players on the court are buying into this potentially being the last hurrah for the team when push comes to shove, as both F Paul Pierce and C Kevin Garnett are certainly nearing the end of the road. Boston is just 10-17 ATS this year on the road, but it scored two out of three covers to end a tough West Coast swing at the end of February and is a well-rested team now. That’s good enough to give us the comfort level to back the C’s against a team that is a train wreck in the 76ers.
