Cavaliers vs 76ers Prediction and Odds (Back Cavs to Slow 76ers in new look)

The new-look 76s have won four in a row and look unstoppable. James Harden and Joel Embiid were as good as promised, and Philadelphia are rolling over their opponents. But they will face their toughest defensive test tonight when they host the 36-26 Cleveland Cavaliers at 7:00 p.m. EST.

Cleveland are only 1-5 and 0-6 against the spread (ATS) in their last six games, but Darius Garland was absent for most of that stretch, leaving them without a healthy point guard.

That depth of coverage is still an issue, but the Cavaliers have been lively underdogs all season. Can they slow down the 76ers’ offense or will Philly drive to an easy home win?

Let’s have a look the odds at WynnBET:

In total:

As the first good defense the 76ers have played since Harden’s acquisition, Cleveland presents a unique challenge. It’s like someone throwing a kid into the deep end of a pool to teach them how to swim. I mean, we could have warmed up beforehand or something? Instead, Harden and Embiid are up against a Cavaliers defense ranked 4th in NBA standings.

I think the 76ers will be a popular play tonight. Cleveland has been awful lately and Philadelphia is the hottest thing in town. But that means the Cavaliers are the right bet. They’re 10-6 ATS in their last 16 as underdogs and that line is just a little too big.

Philly is 2-4 ATS at home in the last six and could struggle against such a sharp, athletic defense.

This is one of those games where everything points to taking the 76s, or at least that’s what the odds makers want us to believe. This matchup has a huge impact on the Eastern Conference playoff races and traps the Cavaliers. Philly’s redesigned lineup is terrifying, sure, but they won’t win forever and Cleveland won’t lose forever. This is the perfect spot for the Cavaliers to keep it tight and force competitive play.

Choice: Cavaliers +7
