What to Know

The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t won a contest against the Portland Trail Blazers since Nov. 2 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Monday. Philadelphia will stay at home another game and welcome Portland at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 1 at Wells Fargo Center. The 76ers will be strutting in after a win while Rip City will be stumbling in from a loss.

You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for Philadelphia this past Saturday. They blew past the Atlanta Hawks 122-94. The matchup was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Philadelphia had established an 89-69 advantage. Their power forward Tobias Harris did his thing and posted a double-double on 22 points and 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Portland ended up a good deal behind the Charlotte Hornets when they played on Sunday, losing 125-113. Shooting guard CJ McCollum (25 points) was the top scorer for Rip City.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the 76ers are expected to win a tight contest. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Saturday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

The Sixers were close but no cigar when the two teams previously met in February as they fell 118-114 to Rip City. Maybe the Sixers will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
