The Celtics are 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 Tuesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.

The Celtics are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

The Philadelphia 76ers should be getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home. However, it's the Boston Celtics that are playing the better ball, which includes winning their last 5 games by an average of 19.8 points. The Celtics have also won 4 straight games against the 76ers. The value is with the Celtics and the free bucket, so that's the direction I lean.
