Point Spread: -5/-109 Boston
5* 76ers/Celtics ATS ANNIHILATOR: Celtics -5
Even though the Celtics killed me by blowing a huge lead in Game 4, my money stays on them for Game 5. I still believe the Celtics are the better team. Philadelphia went on a ridiculous run in the second half of Game 4, one in which everything went their way. I can't see that happening at Boston in what is easily the biggest game of the series.
Even though the 76ers covered both games at Boston earlier in this series, I don't think the Celtics were giving it their best effort. With two days of rest, which is absolutely huge for Boston, I look for that Celtic defense to be in prime form.
Not only will the defense be better than it was in Game 4, I also expect a ton of improvement offensively. This team isn't going to let Philadelphia rally from a large deficit tonight, as I look for the Celtics to win by double-digits! BET BOSTON!
