NBA Betting Trends
The Sixers are 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall. Philadelphia is 8-20 ATS in its last 28 games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400.
The Cavs are a 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight games versus the Pacific Division. Cleveland is 3-1-1 ATS in its last five games overall.
The Cavaliers have alternated between being very competitive and looking completely overmatched this season. With a Philly squad coming in that has been poor on the road and often plays down to its competition, I am betting we get the good side of Cleveland today. The Cavs played well in the second half against Miami Thursday night and even made it interesting for a while in the fourth quarter. I expect that effort to carry over.
