Cavaliers vs 76ers Prediction
The current betting odds have the 76ers listed as a 7.5 point favorite in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. This is a regular season game in Philadelphia but this game is also on Tuesday night which means it is part of the group stage for the NBA In-Season Tournament. The 76ers have looked really good this season with their 10-3 record overall and they have also looked great in their home games too with their 6-2 home record. They have some momentum coming into this game with 2 wins in a row now and they will be looking to keep pace with the Celtics in the East while also trying to win the group in the In-Season Tournament. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers are only 7-6 overall this season and have a 4-3 road record too. They have looked a lot better lately with 3 wins in a row now but now their star Donovan Mitchell is banged up and they have already been struggling with injuries early on this season. The 76ers are the healthier team right now but they have also looked a lot better in their games with their new head coach. The 76ers will be motivated to pick up the win at home against a Cavs team that has struggled all season so far. The best way to place a bet here is on the 76ers to cover the spread in this game.
Cavaliers 76ers Prediction: Our NBA Pick for Tuesday, November 21, 2023 (7:30 pm ET start time) is 76ers 122 Cavaliers 110.
