76ers Have Dropped Nine Straight to Surging Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers never stay down for too long, and after starting the season with a string of underwhelming performances, the wine and gold have rebounded in the form of seven straight wins to re-establish themselves as a force in the Eastern Conference. The Cavs aim to collect their eighth straight win when they visit the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.

MyBookie opened the Sixers as 2.5-point home underdogs for the tilt, but as of 1 p.m. ET Thursday afternoon the line had jumped the fence to Philadelphia -2. This is the first time since 2013 where the Sixers were favored over the Cavs.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games after consecutive wins.
  • The 76ers are 7-2 SU in their last nine games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Cavaliers’ last 18 games against the 76ers.

LeBron James has been an absolute workhorse lately, but it’s definitely showing in the win column for Cleveland. James has logged at least 40 minutes per game in eight of the Cavs’ 19 games, and he’s averaging 37.7 minutes while shooting 58 percent from the field in that span. James notched 27 points, 16 boards and 13 assists to help Cleveland squeeze by Charlotte in a 100-99 triumph on Friday.

The 76ers are winners of three straight and five of their last six after hammering the Orlando Magic 130-111 on Saturday. Rookie sensation Ben Simmons didn’t play in that game due to elbow soreness but is likely to play in tonight’s contest. Backup point guard T.J. McConnell started in place of Simmons vs the Magic and recorded season highs of 15 points, 13 assists and seven rebounds.

To say Cleveland has long dominated this series would be a massive understatement. The Cavaliers have won nine straight vs the 76ers and took the three meetings last season by an average of 7.3 points.
