Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics. Thursday January 9, 2020, 7:00 PM (EST). Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA.

The Boston Celtics are on the road for a matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers. Philadelphia and Boston will meet to determine the strongest, and we have prepared prediction for this confrontation. Will the hosts play in their own style?

Philadelphia 76ers 24-14 (16-21-1 ATS)

Philadelphia is the fifth in the Eastern Conference, though a much better result is expected from a team with such personnel. More recently, the team of Brett Brown survived the crisis, which lasted four matches, but in the last meeting the situation changed for the better.

The Sixers managed to beat Oklahoma within their home walls (120-113), although the team lost one of the leaders Joel Embiid, as a heavy striker injured his finger. It was noticeable that the owners put everything at stake and went all-in, but this decision brought a positive result.

Philadelphia has once again proved that it’s better not to anger it at the Wells Fargo Center arena, where the club very rarely loses points, so Boston should be well prepared if the guests are aimed at winning, of course.

Boston Celtics 25-10 (20-13-2 ATS)

Celtics lost the second line of the East in just two fights, though we must pay tribute to Miami, because the opponent took advantage of the problems of the Brad Stevens team. On the other hand, the club feels comfortable in the top three and is ready to wedge itself into the fight again.

Recall that “Boston” lost twice in a row, first on the road to Washington (94-99), which can be called a sensation, and then could not cope with “San Antonio” (114-129). The team played poorly in the attack, although this can easily be explained, since Kemba Walker missed the meeting due to health problems.

The Celtics go on a visit to an uncomfortable opponent, so we will have to give all our best, though a really interesting confrontation awaits us.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics Predictions

Both teams do not mind putting victory in their piggy bank, therefore a principled and at the same time spectacular meeting is expected. “Philadelphia” will be released on the floor not only as a host, but also a favorite, and there is nothing surprising here, as Brett Brown’s wards at home demonstrate a reliable game. The only concern is the absence of Joel Embiid, though Boston is also not all right with the roster, as Kemb Walker’s performance is questionable.

In a word, we assume that the native walls will help Philadelphia score points, which is what we are betting on.
