NBA Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Cavaliers are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games versus the Atlantic Division. Cleveland is 7-2-1 ATS in its last 10 Tuesday games.

Philadelphia

The 76ers are 4-1 in their last five games versus the Central Division. Philadelphia is 7-3-1 ATS in its last 11 games overall.

Prediction:

Philadelphia has played well at home this season and still has enough pieces to get the job done with Ben Simmons missing in the short term. Cleveland has looked good its last couple games, but I think it is running into a buzzsaw here. The Sixers are good defensively across the board and I expect the Cavs' young guards to struggle to deal with it. Look for one or two big quarters to propel the 76ers to cover in this spot.
