Cavs Finding Success Against Clippers

Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James

The Cleveland Cavaliers-Los Angeles Clippers series has been extremely one sided at the betting window as of late. In the last 10 meetings between the teams, the Clips are just 2-8 ATS. They’ll square off once again in Ohio, where Clips backers won’t find any more relief when looking at trends, as L.A. has failed to cover the spread in eight of their previous nine trips to Quicken Loans Arena.

Shark Bites
  • The Clippers are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games as road underdogs.
  • The Cavaliers are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last six games against the Western Pacific division.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Clippers' last three games with two days off.

Chris Paul and company have had no issues getting the job done recently, however. The Clippers have won 11 of their last 12 heading into the contest while covering the spread in eight of those occasions.

Los Angeles has been beating up on weaker competition in the last week (5-0 against teams with losing records) but will have their hands full now, as four of their next five opponents are considered the top teams in the East and boast combined home records of 69-29.

UNDER bettors have found value when the Clips and Cavs collide. Four of their last five meetings have gone below the closing total, with the UNDER going a perfect 4-0 in the prior four meetings between the squads in Cleveland.
