Philadelphia 76ers Betting

The Sixers have made the necessary adjustments with Joel Embiid at the front. Ben Simmons remains out of action, meaning coach Brett Brown needs to turn to other players. Tobias Harris and Josh Richardson need to step up on the offensive end to make up. Philly is limiting opponents to just 106.5 points this season but may need to tighten up more. Though the Cavs are struggling offensively, there are players like Collin Sexton and Darius Garland who can drop buckets in a hurry.

Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The Cleveland Cavaliers are hoping that their recent win over the Miami Heat will motivate them to get another win. In that game, the Cavs showed heart, battling back from as much as 21 points down. Kevin Porter Jr. and Kevin Love led Cleveland in that match but may find rough sailing against the 76ers. With Embiid in the middle, scoring points will not come easy for coach JB Bickerstaff’s charges.
