Randy’s Free Pick
The Boston Celtics are going to be favored because of what they've done this season overall, but the 76ers as underdogs is intriguing. The 76ers are not only a good team overall, but they win at home by an average of 6 points. Big statement game for Philly on national TV, and the home team has won 6 of the last 9 meetings. Give me the 76ers at home here.
