The Philadelphia 76ers look for a statement victory after winning five of their last six games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 109.6 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 107.4 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 22.4 points and 11.2 rebounds while Ben Simmons is averaging 18.5 points and 7.7 assists. JJ Redick is the third double-digit scorer and Robert Covington is grabbing six rebounds. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.2 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 32 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.8 rebounds per game. The Philadelphia 76ers have won five of their last six home games.
The Cavaliers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The 76ers are 22-8 ATS in their last 30 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference and 48-21 ATS in their last 69 games overall. The Cavaliers are 1-10 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Philadelphia, 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings and the under is 13-5 in the last 18 meetings.
I'm assuming Embiid and Simmons are both playing due to the 76ers being favored. If that's the case, I'll lay the bucket with the home team. The Cavs have been winning as of late, but it's not like they're dominating teams. The Cavs have had some very close calls against below average teams, and the 76ers are a consistent young team that should thrive in a statement game like this. I look for Philly to be packed and for these young kids to take advantage of the moment. I like the 76ers to end the Cavs winning streak.
