Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Philadelphia 76ers vs Cleveland Cavaliers 11/17/2019 – The hype surrounding the Philadelphia 76ers (7-5) is starting to diminish especially after suffering back-to-back losses against sub .500 teams. On Sunday, the Sixers will try to end the losing streak against the team they barely defeated five days ago, the Cleveland Cavaliers (4-7). The Sixers, who are a terrible 0-4 in NBA spread betting over their last four games, opened as the 7-point road favorites over the Cavaliers, who boast a 3-1 ATS slate in their last four outings.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Sixers’ 119-127 overtime loss to the OKC Thunder marked their second consecutive loss against a team with a losing record. Two days prior to that, Philadelphia was held down to a season-low point production in a 97-112 loss to the Orlando Magic. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have been putting up steady numbers for the Sixers this season, but the absence of another shot creator in the same caliber as Jimmy Butler has so far doomed Philadelphia.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (23.0 PPG, 12.4 RPG, 3.1 APG), Tobias Harris (16.5 PPG. 8.4 RPG, 3.5 APG), Al Horford (15.7 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 3.8 APG)
Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers are still a work in progress two years after LeBron James left for the glitz and glamor of Los Angeles. And while making the playoffs is obviously not the goal this season, the Cavs are becoming relevant again in the East by competing hard in each game. Cleveland came close to defeating the Sixers, 98-97, and then competed with the Heat before collapsing down the stretch, 108-97. The only negative news is the hand injury Larry Nance Jr. suffered in the fourth quarter of the Miami game.
Players to Watch: Kevin Love (18.7 PPG, 12.6 RPG, 3.2 APG), Collin Sexton (18.4 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 2.4 APG), Tristan Thompson (15.2 PPG, 10.6 RPG, 2.2 APG)
