Trail Blazers Have Become one of the Worst Bets in the NBA

Churning out wins at Quicken Loans Arena has become commonplace for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs, winners of seven of eight at the Q this year, will look to collect another victory at home against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Trail Blazers are 2-14 SU in their last 16 games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The Cavaliers are 0-7-1 ATS in their last eight games after a win.
  • The Trail Blazers are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games.

Sportsbooks opened the Blazers as 11.5-point road underdogs with a total of 216.

The Cavs haven’t played since hammering Detroit 104-81 on Friday, but the rest should do the team some good. Cleveland’s roster is fully healthy now that 3-point specialist J.R. Smith is back in the fold. Smith is back from a sprained ankle that caused him to miss three games.

The Blazers are on the back end of a grueling road trip that sees them playing their fifth game in seven days away from home. Portland is 1-3 SU during that stretch in the wake of a 107-103 setback to the New York Knicks on Tuesday.

The Trail Blazers have fared well in recent clashes with the Cavs. Portland is 8-3 SU in its past 11 meetings against Cleveland.
