2010-11 NBA Games to Watch: 0-0*

Philadelphia 76ers +9.5 over Boston Celtics

After a sluggish start to the season, Philadelphia has picked up the pace, winning eight of their last 12 games. The 76ers feature a balanced attack, with their top five scorers averaging between 11.3 and 15 PPG.

Boston currently boasts the best record in the NBA at 22-4. After losing back-to-back games in the middle of November, the Celtics have rattled off 13 straight wins heading into Wednesday’s contest with the 76ers.

Boston opened as a 10-point favorite at CRIS and is currently receiving 74% of spread bets and 81% of moneyline wagers. Even with the betting public pounding the Celtics, the line has dropped to -9 at CRIS, indicating sharp money is backing Philadelphia.

Sports Insights’ Betting Systems have triggered two positive Steam Moves, including one at 5Dimes (+13.91 units), on Philadelphia, explaining the reverse-line movement and showing there is value on the underdog.
