Profitable data-driven system picks

The Sixers take on the Celtics in Boston, as the rivals faceoff for the third time this season.

Philadelphia will be looking for the 3-0 regular-season sweep, as Boston has been unable to stop MVP hopeful Joel Embiid, who is averaging a whopping 40.0 points per game (PPG) against the Celtics this season.

Embiid is slated to play on Tuesday night, which spells big trouble for Brad Stevens and Co.

Boston has won three of its last five games and has covered in back-to-back games. The Celtics’ defense is holding opponents to 94.0 PPG over this two-game cover stretch. No one expects the Celtics to hold the Sixers with Embiid to fewer than 100 points, but they will need to bring that same high level of defensive intensity to keep things close.

Our latest PRO Report shows that sharp bettors are not liking the Celtics’ chances on Tuesday night. Let’s take a look.
