Boston vs Philadelphia: will the Celts be on fire?


17/08/2020, 22:30 GTM

Odds: 1.61


Philadelphia lost Ben Simmons ten days ago. The options remain in the attack, but it is almost impossible to replace the Australian in their own half of the floor. The Celtics have scored at least 122 points in their four final regular season matches. The Sixers' defense faces a tough test.


Brad Stevens' wards have been showing good basketball for several seasons and are one of the leaders of the Eastern Conference. This championship was no exception, as the club qualified for the playoffs from the third line.

Boston played quite well a number of matches after the quarantine, so they are in good shape for the elimination games. In the last meeting, the team lost to Washington (90-96), although then the head coach gave the leaders a rest and this result did not surprise anyone.

The Celtics know how to cope with difficulties, tune in to serious challenges and skillfully take advantage of the opponent's problems, which are more than enough in Philadelphia now.

Unfortunately, Brett Brown's guys are far from optimal shape, plus Ben Simmons is in the infirmary, who plays an important role in the team.

After the break, Philadelphia had a great three games, because they celebrated victory in all of them, but then difficulties began and the club slipped to the sixth line of the Eastern Conference, as a result of which they will meet with Boston in the playoffs.

"Sixers" need to add something as soon as possible, although there is not much time, since now every victory is worth its weight in gold. It is very important for the team to forget about recent failures and start thinking about the championship.


Recently, Boston have shown themselves better on the floor than their opponents. "Philadelphia" is not doing very well and the team game has disappeared somewhere, so it is not surprising to see Brett Brown's charges in the status of an outsider.

The Celtics have everything and the club is ready for confrontation and, in our opinion, it will dominate in this match. In a word, we expect a confident victory for the “Celts”.

Our prediction is the victory of Boston Celtics, taking into account the handicap (-3) points for the coefficient 1.61 in BC 1xBet
