Ricky's 8* play on the Celtics.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The 76ers are 0-6 ATS in their last six games following a straight up win of more than 10 points.
- The Celtics are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 Conference Quarterfinals games.
- The 76ers are 5-12 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
Verdict: The Sixers are going nowhere without Ben Simmons.
