NBA Betting Preview
Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers
Wednesday, 8:05 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Cavaliers – 6.5 , Total 186.5
The Cleveland Cavaliers take their dominance on the road on Wednesday as they visit Elton Brand and the Philadelphia 76ers. Brand has missed the last two games for the 76ers but is expected to play on Wednesday. “If you did a survey, unless you’re a rookie or don’t play a lot of minutes, everybody has something,” Brand said. “This is one of those ‘somethings.’ I know the body.” Philadelphia has been struggling all the way around of late, shooting just 43.4 percent from the field and 32.2 percent from the 3-point line. SBG Global reports that early NBA betting has the public taking Cavaliers on the Road.
The Cavaliers are off to the best start in their history and have been winning by double-digits on a regular basis. LeBron James has been leading the team in scoring once again this season but he is getting a lot of help, especially from guard Maurice Williams. The one disadvantage the Cavaliers might have tonight is that they had to play last night against Toronto while the 76ers are well rested.
