The Philadelphia 76ers and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 115.1 points on 48.5 percent shooting and allowing 111 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 33.4 points and 4.1 assists, while James Harden is averaging 21.9 points and 10.8 assists. Tyrese Maxey is the third double-digit scorer and Tobias Harris is grabbing 5.9 rebounds. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 38.9 percent from beyond the arc and 83.5 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.6 rebounds per game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 112 points on 48.7 percent shooting and allowing 106.7 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 27.6 points and 4.7 assists, while Darius Garland is averaging 22.1 points and 2.7 rebounds. Evan Mobley is the third double-digit scorer and Jarrett Allen is grabbing 9.8 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 77.8 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 37.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.7 rebounds per game.

The 76ers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. The Cavaliers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games. The over is 6-2 in 76ers last 8 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 8-3 in Cavaliers last 11 overall. The 76ers are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Cleveland and 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

This line has to do with Mitchell and Allen being ruled questionable. I’m still siding with the Cleveland Cavaliers at home and the free bucket. The Philadelphia 76ers aren’t nearly as good on the road as they are at home and the Cavs are one of the best home teams where they win by an average of 9.1 points. The home team has won both meetings this season. Give me the bucket.
