Sagarin indicates this line is on the money.

Over the course of 17 games, Philadelphia has only won twice against the Celtics.  Boston is 8-2 Against The Spread in the last ten meetings.

Philadelphia ranked 6 in the Power Rankings, Boston ranked 9.

From ESPN.com: “Christmas came early for the Sixers when they landed Jimmy Butler in November. They could use a little depth behind their superstar core in the form of shooters, but what the Sixers really need is a chemistry set. Because the big pieces are there in Philadelphia -- they just need to cohere.”

From ESPN.com: "The Celtics need to find a definite hierarchy and team structure that their entire roster can buy into this holiday season. They are one of the most talented teams in the NBA from top to bottom, with incredible depth and playoff proven young talent just about everywhere. However, they have not shown that they can consistently get everyone on the same page, producing to the team's needs, when everyone is healthy. If they find that under the tree, they instantly resume their expected role as the team to beat in the East."
