Home Court Huge When Cavs, Kings Meet

A pair of the NBA’s most dramatic franchises square off on Wednesday when LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers invade Sleep Train Arena for a date with DeMarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday. Home court advantage has been huge in this series, as visiting clubs are 0-6 SU in the last six matchups between the Cavs and Kings.

Shark Bites
  • The Kings are 0-4 SU and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games after losing as favorites.
  • The Cavaliers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against the Western Conference.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Cavaliers' last 10 games after a loss.

Cleveland, who’s kicking off a four-game road trip, will be looking for a much better effort compared to their last outing. The wine and gold fell 106-103 to Memphis on Monday despite the Grizzlies only dressing eight players. While the players keep brushing off the rumored discord in the locker room, there’s no debating this team is not operating at 100 percent.

The Kings (25-37 SU, 27-35 ATS) have been far from a reliable spread bet this year, however, they have been profitable in one area — cashing OVER tickets. Sacramento has gone above the closing total in 12 of its last 17 games.
