Randy’s Free Pick
We’ll need to know if Embiid is going to play before locking this in, but the 76ers in the underdog role is appealing. The 76ers have been one of the better teams in the league all year, and they’re 9-5 ATS as an underdog. The Celtics have had some hiccups these last few weeks, and they’ve lost 5 of the last 8 meetings against the 76ers. Give me the points.
