Capper Penguin sees a bit of MVP narrative helping this pick cash. Check it out below!
Capper Penguin's Wednesday NBA Pick: 76ers @ Cavaliers - 3/15
Philadelphia 76ers @ Cleveland Cavaliers (7:30PM ET)
The 76ers are in this interesting phase right now of prioritizing winning games and getting Joel Embiid the MVP.
He's been popping off (all year) but especially recently and especially on the road. This directly benefits James Harden's assist numbers which is our biggest hill to climb for this play. He's had 10+ assists in his last 4 of 5 games and 3 straight away games averaging 13 assists per game. He's also cleared a double double every game vs the Cavaliers since joining the 76ers (4 games). He's also had 19+ points in all four of those games and has cleared 15+ points in his last 20 of 21 games overall.
Give me a double double from the Beard with some juice.
** I realize this price (-150) isn't available everywhere so I'm also good with 10+ assists and raising the points up to no more than 15! There's always a chance he could get 10 rebounds too.
Capper Penguin's Pick:
JAMES HARDEN DOUBLE DOUBLE @ -150
