Cleveland Cavaliers DFS Spin

Cleveland power forward Evan Mobley is having another stellar season in his second year in the NBA. The former #3 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft is posting 15.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting a terrific 55.4% from the field this year. Mobley could be a cost-effective DFS option at power forward Wednesday.

Cavaliers point guard Darius Garland has been having another good year for Cleveland as he’s averaging 21.6 points, 8 assists, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game while shooting a career-best 41.4% from beyond the arc this season on 6.1 attempts per game. His multi-category production could help your DFS lineup as well.  

Philadelphia 76ers DFS Spin

Philadelphia power forward PJ Tucker is dealing with calf tightness, but he’s probable for Wednesday’s game against Cleveland. Sixers star center Joel Embiid is officially listed as questionable for Wednesday’s tilt with the Cavaliers. Embiid is dealing with left foot soreness. Embiid is Philly’s best player and is having a monster year as evidenced by his stat line of 33.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game. If he plays, Embiid should always be considered for DFS purposes.

If you need a steady stream of points and assists, consider Philly shooting guard James Harden. Harden is leading the league in assists with 10.8 per game and he’s also chipping in 21.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per contest. Harden can still shoot the three-ball as well as he’s converting 38.8% of his treys on 7.2 attempts per game.  

Cavaliers vs. 76ers NBA Betting Trends

Philadelphia is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight-up win of more than 10 points.

Philadelphia is 19-7 ATS in their last 26 home games.

Philadelphia is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

Cavaliers vs. 76ers NBA Prediction

The 76ers have been one of the best teams in the NBA this year. They rank in the top eight in the league in offensive efficiency, defensive efficiency, and average scoring margin. The 76ers have the second-best record against the spread in the NBA at 32-23-1 this season and they’re the second-best home team ATS this year with a record of 19-10-1. The key for this game is whether Joel Embiid plays. If he does, I’d be hard-pressed to pick against a Philadelphia team that has won 12 of their last 15 games. I’ll lay the points with the Sixers at home.
