Philadelphia vs. Boston, 05/03/2018 20:30 EDT, Score: 103 - 108

Money Line: -165 Philadelphia

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Loss

This is an 8* play on the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Sixers came out flat in Game 1, but I expect them to respond with a far better effort in Game 2. The Celtics are still banged up, and Jaylen Brown is not expected to be back for Game 2. Boston shot the ball incredibly well in Game 1, and that's something I don't think the Celtics can count on happening again. They made 18-of-19 free throws, shot almost 50 percent from three-point range and over 48 percent from the field. We can expect a far better effort on defense from Philly, and the law of averages would suggest that those numbers in Game 1 were an anomaly. The same can be said about the Sixers going just 5-for-26 from beyond the arc in the series opener. Philly is 6-1-1 ATS in it's last eight when coming off a loss.

Take PHILLY.
