The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to the City of Brotherly Love to take on the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Basketball Two in a Row

The Cleveland Cavaliers have their first winning streak of the season. Cleveland has won two games in a row now, defeating the Washington Wizards and New York Knicks by double-digit margins. The Cavs are 4-5 SU on the season and they are currently third in the NBA’s Central Division.

Kevin Love has registered a double-double in six out of their nine games played this season. The five-time NBA All-Star is averaging 18.3 points and 13.4 rebounds per game this season. Tristan Thompson is having a career year with 16.45 points and 11.3 rebounds per game this year. Sophomore guard Collin Sexton is coming off a 31-point game against the Knicks.

Cleveland ranks 22nd in scoring at 107.1 points per game this season. The Cavs are tied for 15th in rebounding at 46.1 rebounds per contest and they are tied for 25th in passing at 21.2 assists per game.

Basketball Looking for Consistency

The Philadelphia 76ers opened the season with a perfect 5-0 record. They have gone 1-4 since and are currently 6-3 SU on the year and in 3rd place in the Atlantic Division. The Sixers lost Joel Embiid to a two-game suspension for his fight with Karl Anthony Towns and they have missed Ben Simmons in their last two games with a sprained shoulder.

Tobias Harris is averaging 18.3 points and 8.6 rebounds to pace the Sixers. Embiid is putting up 22.3 points and 11.8 rebounds this season while Simmons leads the team with 6.8 assists per game while also scoring 13.1 points per outing. Newly acquired big man Al Horford is averaging 15.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game for Philadelphia.

Philadelphia ranks 16th in the league in scoring at 111.0 points per game this season. They are also 5th off the glass at 47.7 boards grabbed per contest and 4th in passing at 26.0 assists per game. The Sixers are 9th in the NBA in scoring defense with an average of 106.2 points per game allowed.

Basketball Who Wins?

Cleveland is 4-15 SU in their last 19 games played. The Cavaliers are 2-14 SU in their last 16 games played on the road and 2-6 SU in their last eight November games. The 76ers are 6-3 SU in their last nine games played. Philadelphia is 7-1 SU in their last eight games played at home and 5-1 SU in their last six games played against the Eastern Conference. Head to head, the Cavs are 6-4 SU in their last 10 games played against the Sixers but Philly has won four out of their last five meetings and they are big betting favorites in this contest.

The Cavaliers head to this game with back to back wins over the Washington Wizards and New York Knicks. However, they face a tough task against a Sixers team that is looking to get back on track after going just 1-4 SU in their last four games. Cleveland is having good starts from Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson while Collin Sexton is coming off a career-night in scoring.

The Sixers may miss Ben Simmons for a third straight game as the Aussie continues to nurse a sprained right shoulder. Shake Milton is also out of this game so Brett Brown will need to shuffle his rotation here. Thankfully for the Sixers, they are playing at home where they are 3-0 SU so far and they boast of a more superior team in terms of talent.

I think the Sixers can find consistency playing at home. Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris have enough support to pull off this victory against the Cavaliers.

Odds from SportsBetting as of 11/12/19

The Sixers have defeated the Cavs by an average margin of 8.2 points per game in their last 10 meetings and 7.0 points per game in their last three games played. Cleveland has covered well against the Sixers, even in Philadelphia and they have been solid against the spread this season. Remember that this is the Sixers team which had a big lead trimmed to five in the final 30 seconds against the Hornets in their last game. I trust the process but not the Sixers’ ability to cover a double-digit spread.

Prediction: Cavs +10

Place Your Bet Here

The under is 5-4 in the Cavs’ nine games played this season. The total has gone under in four out of the five road games played by Cleveland so far. The over is 10-4 in the Cavs’ last 14 games against the Atlantic Division and the over is also 5-2 in their last seven Tuesday games played. The total has gone under in 12 out of the last 18 games played by the Sixers. The over is 4-1 in the Sixers’ last five games against the Central Division and the over is also 12-5 in their last seventeen November games played. Head to head, the over is 3-1 in the last four meetings between these two teams.

What are the Total Odds?


219 (-110)


219 (-110)

Odds from SportsBetting as of 11/12/19

These teams have combined to score 219.5 points per game in their last 10 meetings and 223.66 points per game in their last three encounters. These teams are in the Top 11 in scoring defense with the Cavs allowing 108.0 points per game and the Sixers 106.2 points per game this season. These teams play good defense this year and with the Sixers possibly without Ben Simmons for the third straight game, consistency may be an issue here again. I’ll take the under here.

Prediction: Under 219
