The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Philadelphia 76ers duke it out at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been in great shape as they’ve won 13 of their past 16 games overall and they will be gunning for a fifth straight victory after rallying past the Pacers in a 120-113 road win last night. Jarrell Allen and Caris LeVert each scored 22 points, Rajon Rondo scored 17 points 16 points with seven rebounds and six assists off the bench while Kevin Love chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 53 percent from the field and nine of 24 from the 3-point line as they got off to a sloppy start and allowed the Pacers to explode for a season-high 47 points in the first quarter, but they chipped away at the deficit and rallied past the Pacers in the fourth quarter to finish with the impressive comeback victory. The Cavaliers’ bench combined for 45 points and LeVert was clutch down the stretch against his former team.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been in fine form as they’ve won seven of their past 10 games overall and they will be eager to stay hot after routing the Thunder in a 100-87 home win last night. Joel Embiid led the team with 25 points, 19 rebounds and five blocks, Tyrese Maxey added 24 points on nine of 14 shooting while Tobias Harris chipped in with 17 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks. As a team, the 76ers shot just 38 percent from the field and seven of 26 from the 3-point line as they held the Thunder to just 17 points in the second quarter to take the early lead, before going on a run in the third quarter to push the lead out to 19 points. Embiid had a rough shooting night as he made just eight of 25 from the field while Shake Milton finished with just four points on one of nine shooting off the bench.

Looking at the betting trends, the Cavaliers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games, 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games playing on zero days’ rest and 18-6 ATS in their last 24 games against a team with a winning record. The 76ers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team above .600.

Head to head, the under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings overall and the Cavaliers are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings in Philadelphia.

The Cavaliers have quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league lately and they would’ve taken so much confidence from last night’s comeback win over the Pacers after trailing by as many as 21 points early in the contest. The 76ers have been on a nice run themselves and they will be eager to keep it moving after routing the lowly Thunder last night. The 76ers will again be without James Harden who is still dealing with hamstring tightness, so I’m leaning towards the Cavaliers who are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings in Philadelphia.
