Spread: Cleveland Cavaliers +2.5 (-110) @ bet365

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to build on their earlier win over the Philadelphia 76ers this season. The Cleveland Cavaliers enter this game on a seven-game win streak while going 8-2 over their last 10 games. The Philadelphia 76ers have won three games in a row and have won seven of their last 10 games.

The Cavaliers thrive through their excellent perimeter defence, which allows just 105.9 points per game (1st in the NBA) on 46.5% from the field (5th in the NBA) while limiting teams to just 11.3 threes per game (3rd in the NBA).

Over their seven game win streak the Cavaliers' defence has been locked in, allowing just 99.6 points per game on 45.3% from the field and 29.8% from three. 

The Sixers are also a strong defensive team, allowing just 110.4 points per game (3rd in the NBA) on 47.1% from the field (12th in the NBA) and 34.4% from deep (2nd in the NBA). Over their three-game win streak, the Sixers have allowed just 103.3 points per game on 44.4% from the field and 31.3% from deep.

We're taking the Cleveland Cavaliers in this matchup with the Sixers.

Philadelphia may be ahead in the standings, but Cleveland are in excellent form and already have a win over Philadelphia this season. 

Given the strength of Cleveland's interior defence as well as their ability to limit teams from deep, the Cavaliers look set to maintain their win streak.

Both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers bank on the quality of their defense to earn victories. The Cavaliers are averaging a combined points total of 217.7 points per game on a plus-5.9-point differential. The Sixers are averaging a combined 224.7 points on a plus-3.9-point differential.

Over the course of Cleveland's seven-game win streak, the Cavaliers have averaged a combined 215.2 points per game on a plus-16.0 differential due to the quality of their defense through that run. Through Philadelphia's three-game win streak, they averaged a combined 217.6 points total on a plus-11.0 differential as they've shot a solid 51.0% from the field and 36.8% from deep.

We're expecting these teams to clear 217.0 in this matchup. The last time these teams met, they combined for just 198.0 - but key players like Jarrett Allen, Tyrese Maxey, and James Harden were unavailable for that outing. With most parties available to play this time out, the defenses won't be able to collapse as much and the points total should be much higher.
