Rotation #516
Celtics -10 over Sixers (loss)
The Celtics had no problem beating Philly when they were full strength this season. Boston is a great three-point shooting team, and they defend it just as well. The Sixers will be without their leader Joel Embiid tonight. Philly will look to shoot a lot of three-pointers, but it won’t be easy against an outstanding defense. The public is all over Philadelphia because of the large margin of points. In round one, the lesser team covered and even won games like this, but it gets much tougher each round. Jason Tatum will have a huge night, and his team will set the tone for the series with a big win in the opener. Take the Celtics.

Rotation #960
Yankees -135 over Guardians (loss)
Neither team has been great at hitting the ball this year against right-handed pitchers, but the Yankees have been much better than Cleveland. The Guardians stater, Cal Quantrill, could be a better strike-out pitcher, leading to more Yankees hits. Domingo German has a cannon of an arm and is striking out double-digit batters per game. Take the Yankees at home.
