As surface area decreases and thus boiling point decreases .

As the branching increases the surface area of compound decreases, as surface area is directly proportional to vander waal interaction forces. The interaction forces between atom will decrease and they become weak on branching. Hence, molecules with weak forces of interaction are easy to boil...Thus , as branching increases boiling point decreases.
