The Boston Celtics are en route to Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday, where they will take on the Philadelphia 76ers. Boston is a 1-point underdog from oddsmakers. The over/under has been set at 232. This is possibly a preview of the upcoming Eastern Conference Finals.

They give up 23.9 dimes and 41.2 boards per game respectively - 6th and 3rd respectively in basketball.

They allow 34.9% on shots from beyond the arc and rank 6th in basketball in points per game allowed (111.8).

Celtics vs 76ers Head-to-Head this season.
The Celtics have won all three matchups so far this season, winning two in Boston and one in Philadelphia.
Betting on the game! 76ers-1
The Celtics have dominated and won all three games this season. These are two of the three best teams in the Eastern Conference, and I think the law of averages forces me to ride with the homestanding Sixers in this one.
If the previous three games are any indication, I will bet the under on the 232.
