Who the Public Likes: Boston. As of Thursday morning, 62 percent of public bets have been placed on the Celtics.

Injury Report: Celtics center Al Horford missed the last game with knee soreness, but is expected to play today. Prized free agent signing Gordon Hayward is out for the season after breaking his ankle in the opener back in October. For the Sixers, Joel Embiid is experiencing back soreness but is expected to play. Amir Johnson is questionable with an illness. Markelle Fultz has been out with a shoulder imbalance and it is unkown if he will return against the Celtics. Furkan Korkmaz has been sidelined by a lisfranc injury and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

Who the Trends Like: Boston is 5-2 ATS in its last seven meetings when Philadelphia is considered the home team. The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings. Philadelphia is 4-0 ATS in its last four games overall.

Who We Like: As long as Embiid is healthy enough to play, I like the Sixers here. Boston has won both meetings this season by double digits and will be looking for revenge. Boston doesn't have an answer defensively for Embiid inside and I'd imagine he dictates the flow of the game in front of a big audience. Boston has won four in a row, but as its ATS record has come back down to earth some this is a good spot for Philly to take advantage of regression.
