The Philadelphia 76ers will host the Cleveland Cavaliers for an Eastern Conference showdown. The Cavs will try to get their fourth consecutive win on Saturaday night while the sixers will try to get their 2nd straight win at home after beating OKC.
The Cavs are having a great season so far and they achieved their 35th victory against the Spurs. All-Star Darius Garland scored 27 points in his return from a back injury and Caris LeVert added 11 in his debut for Cleveland, leading the Cavaliers to a 105-92 win.
Cleveland is tied for first in the Central division with both Chicago and Milwaukee. The team is averaging 106.5 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 101.9 points on 43.9 percent shooting.
Defensively, they're giving up 101.9 points per game and are allowing 33.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game. They gave up 92 points in their last game and will need a similar effort if they want to get the win.
Philadelphia is first in the Atlantic division and they just acquired James Harden from the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond and two draft picks. Harden is out for this game.
The Sixers beat the Thunder at home 100-87 and covered the spread as -12 pts favorites (opening line). Joel Embiid had 25 points, 19 rebounds and five blocked shots. Tyrese Maxey scored 24 points and Harris 17 for the Sixers.
The team is averaging 107.83 pts and shooting 46.57% FG and they rank 5th from the free throw line with an 81% of efficiency. Defensively they're allowing 105.8 points on 45 percent shooting and 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.1 rebounds per game.

Cleveland are 10-2-1 when the spread was +3 to +6.

Philadelphia are 10-16 ATS at home.
The Cavaliers are playing some of their best basketball right now and will look to stay hot. They're 19-9-1 as underdogs while the 76ers are just 7-16 as home favorites. Jarret Allen should be able to contend Embiid, I like the Cavs to cover.
PICK: Cavaliers +4.5 (-110)
