Cleveland Cavaliers vs Philadelphia 76ers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Both the Cavaliers and 76ers played and lost last night, setting up an intriguing affair tonight at Wells Fargo Center. This will be the 3rd meeting between the two teams, the first two were decided by just 3 and 2 points with each team winning a road game. Donovan Mitchell did not play for the Cavs last night, which would explain why they lost by 7 points at home to Orlando. His status is unclear ahead of tonight’s game, it’s safe to say that this team is just not the same without him at the helm. Darius Garland did his best to pick up the slack yesterday with 18 points and 10 assists, Cleveland actually shot well from the field (55%), however their defense from before the All-Star break was nowhere to be found.

Philadelphia also struggled heavily last night, putting up just 96 points past the shorthanded New York Knicks. Without their leading scorer Joel Embiid, baskets are hard to come by these days, even when Tyrese Maxey is having a huge night scoring 35 points. A balanced team effort and 6 players scoring 10 or more points got the job done last time for Philadelphia when they played Cleveland, however they did acquire 2 new players in Kyle Lowry and Buddy Hield since then, so it could take them a while to incorporate them into the offense. The 76ers are 3.5 point underdogs here, they’ve failed to cover the spread in 7 straight home games and are just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs Eastern Conference opponents.

With both teams being handicapped by injuries, I believe Cleveland is the safer pick here, only because they might actually find a way to compensate for Mitchell’s absence. Philadelphia, on the other hand, simply doesn’t have the personnel to make up for Embiid’s 35+ points here. Let’s go with the road underdogs to cover here.

Cavaliers vs 76ers Total Points Prediction: Under 228.5

Under 228.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

The 2 meetings earlier this season have been unusually high scoring with both of them going over 240 points. With the injury situation being problematic for both head coaches here, I think the two teams could struggle to come even close to those numbers in tonight’s game. For Cleveland the under has cashed 12 times in 18 games, we just saw them score only 109 points on the Orlando Magic yesterday. Without Embiid, the Sixers are averaging just 112.3 points per game this year and after seeing Maxey twist his ankle in last night’s loss to New York, I’m afraid they could be without their two leading scorers in this game. They too have also trended towards the under lately, going 5-2 in their last 7 games overall. Tempo wise, these are the 18th and 24th ranked teams in terms of possessions per game, both of them are at under 100 per game over their last 10 outings. I think we’re headed towards a lower scoring game here, so let’s back the under.
