Cavs are on an ATS Roll vs Knicks

The Cleveland Cavaliers have made a habit of absolutely dominating the New York Knicks, and LeBron James and company will look to make it 10 consecutive wins in the series when the Eastern Conference foes renew acquaintances in Northeast Ohio on Thursday. Oddsmakers initially set the wine and gold as 11-point chalk with an OVER/UNDER of 221.

Shark Bites
  • The Knicks are 4-14 SU in their last 18 games on the road against the Cavaliers.
  • The Knicks are 0-4 ATS in their last four games against the Cavaliers.
  • The Cavaliers are 1-3 ATS in their last four games as a favorite of 10.0 or more.

The Cavs will look to post a season sweep over the struggling Knickerbockers, as Cleveland has taken all three meetings between the clubs this year by an average of 22.7 points, including wins by 29 and 32 points. Yikes.

New York has dropped five of its last six and stands four games behind the eighth-place Detroit Pistons for the final playoff spot in the East. With today being trade deadline day, rumors continue to swirl regarding the status of superstar Carmelo Anthony, as the Boston Celtics and L.A. Clippers are perceived as Anthony’s likeliest landing spots. I don’t think he’s going anywhere, however, which you can read about in my NBA trade deadline odds preview.

The key to Cleveland’s triumphs over New York this year has been their success from downtown. The Cavs are 51-of-115 from 3-point range vs the Knicks.

When these teams collide in Ohio, UNDER bettors are profiting. The UNDER is 8-2 in the Knicks’ last 10 on the road vs the Cavaliers.
