BETTING TRENDS

Philadelphia are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.

Philadelphia are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Cleveland are 4-8 ATS in their last 12 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Cleveland's last 12 games at home.

Prediction

The Sixers have been up and down in their last 5 games and have failed to cover the spread in 5 of their last 6 games but this a NBA Finals contender and they're full healthy right now. The Cavs have lost many players due to injuries and they barely beat a shorthanded Clippers team. The 76ers are 2-0 against the Cavs this season, and they'll be 3-0 after this one.

PICK: 76ers -4 (-110)
