Why Bet on the Philadelphia 76ers?

Joel Embiid returns after missing nine-straight games for the Sixers. Although the side was two points short of a win against the Timberwolves in his first game back, he did well to help secure their most recent victory against the Magic. The side secured three wins and three in six games. They have to do better in the coming weeks to move up from the ninth seed.

The 76ers average 107.4 points (15th) on 45.9% shooting (12th) as a team. They are not the biggest offensive threat in the league but can do a little bit of everything. The side cashes in on free throws with an 81.7% average from the line (third). They also hold solid three-point shooting numbers in the league at 36.0% (ninth).

Embiid retains a team-high 22.8 points per game average despite missing almost nine games. Tobias Harris is right behind him with 20.1 PPG, while Tyrese Maxey ranks third with 18.0 PPG.

Defensively, the 76ers allow 106.4 opponent points (16th) per game. They have one of the worst rebounding records in the league. The team records 49.3 total rebounds (30th) per game. They also have a tough time winning defensive rebounds and average just 33.5 boards in 21 games. Nonetheless, the Sixers have impressive rim protection with 5.9 blocks per game (sixth).

Why Bet on the Boston Celtics?

The Celtics have a long way to go before becoming playoff contenders. First-hear head coach Ime Udoka and the rest of the squad have to go through stages of acclimatization before it starts to run like a well-oiled machine. But we’ve seen the Celts deliver promising results throughout the weeks.

The hosts won four of their last six games. They average 107.1 points (18th) per game on 43.5% shooting (24th). We start to see improvement on the offensive end, but the team wins games through robust defensive measures. They hold opponents to 105.5 points (tenth) per game and limit teams to 43.5% shooting (seventh). They average 55.0 boards (seventh) per game. The Celtics also produce top-ten figures on both offensive and defensive rebounds at 10.8 (seventh) and 36.5 (ninth), respectively. Ultimately, the Celtics can give the 76ers a tough time scoring.

Jayson Tatum keeps hold of scoring duties. Robert Williams plays a key role under the rum as he leads the team in rebounding (9.7). Jaylen Brown is questionable for Wednesday’s game due to injury management. If the guard misses the game, Josh Richardson is expected to start the game in his absence.

76ers vs. Celtics Expert Betting Prediction

The 76ers and Celtics are evenly matched, and this game could go down the wire. Both teams are coming off wins and have a bit of momentum going on. However, the Boston Celtics have a home-court advantage in this one, which swings the game slightly on their side. On top of that, they have an extra day of rest versus the Sixers who are coming off a game against the Magic. Ultimately, this is an exciting game to watch for both basketball fans and bettors.
