The Celtics have won three of four games against the Sixers this season.

The old rivals have met twice in the last five postseasons, with Boston winning both.

Here’s a look at the series from a betting perspective, with odds on FOX Bet:

Also in the spotlight for the series is Philadelphia star center Joel Embiid. Embiid, the bookies favorite to win NBA MVP, sprained his right knee in Game 3 against the Brooklyn Nets. Embiid finished that game, but sat out the series-winning Game 4.

The good news for the Sixers is that they have plenty of time to rest and rehabilitate. He last played on 22 April.

The bad thing is, according to reports, it wasn’t enough time since Embiid didn’t star in the series opener.

The franchises have been rivals since the first jump ball when the Syracuse Nationals joined the NBA in 1946 (they moved to Philadelphia in 1963). The Celtics lead the all-time playoff series between the teams, 62–47.
