Bookie vs. Bettor - 76ers vs. Celtics Game 5 Possible Elimination

Written by:
Published on:

Following a number of days in which the recreational books and sharps conflicted in regard to which NBA side was seeing the most action in this second round of the NBA Playoffs, we do have concensus Wednesday evening on the Boston Celtics at -1.5.

Nearly 70% of the action was on Boston at -1.5 playing at home.

The NBA Betting Power Ratings suggest a line of Celtics -3.

The Celtics are 11-1 Against The Spread in their last 12 home games and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings, therefore it is easy to see why the betting public would be all over Boston as they prepare to potentially eliminate the 76ers and advance to the next round.

The oddsmakers have reacted swifty by moving the line in conjuction with the action.

We will remain on the sidelines yet again.
