NBA Odds: Celtics Have These Lines As Betting Favorites Vs. 76ers In Playoffs


Aug 14, 2020

The Boston Celtics are expected to outlast the Philadelphia 76ers.

PointsBetUSA oddsmakers set the Celtics’ lines to win their first-round NBA playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers at -304 on Friday. The Celtics’ lines make them clear favorites over the Sixers, whom PointsBetUSA gave +230 odds to beat Boston.

After securing the third seed in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics will take on the sixth-seeded 76ers in a best-of-seven series. Game 1 is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. ET on Monday.

It’s no surprise the Celtics enter the series as favorites. The 76ers will be without star guard Ben Simmons due to a knee injury, and center Joel Embiid also is battling injuries, which could prove to be good for Boston.
