Cavs are an Unreliable Bet vs Pacers

The Cleveland Cavaliers are turning the corner under newly appointed head coach Tyronne Lue, however tonight they’ll be tasked with covering the spread against a team that’s traditionally given them fits —the Indiana Pacers. Cleveland is 0-4 ATS in its last four against Indy.

Shark Bites
  • The Pacers are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Cavaliers are 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games after winning as an underdog.
  • The Cavaliers are 5-17 SU in their last 22 games against the Pacers.

On January 23, Lue told reporters his team was out of shape after a sloppy loss to the Chicago Bulls in his debut. Since then, the wine and gold have rattled off four straight wins while averaging 115 points per game, with a 117-103 victory over Western Conference heavyweight San Antonio, solidifying the belief that the Cavs look considerably better in the wake of the coaching change. The Cavs have covered in three straight heading into the tilt.

The Pacers have earned back-to-back wins after dropping six of their previous seven but haven’t done anything to inspire any confidence in their backers. Indiana has been one of the most inconsistent teams in the Association this season despite Paul George playing some of the best basketball of his life.

When the Cavs and Pacers collide, UNDER bettors are laughing all the way to the bank. The UNDER has paid out in 12 of the last 15 clashes between the Eastern Conference foes.
