Spurs Ride a 5-Game Over Streak Into Cleveland

The Quicken Loans Arena will be the stage for one of the premier NBA matchups and a potential Finals preview tonight when the San Antonio Spurs take on the Cavaliers in Cleveland looking to continue the dominance they’ve exacted on their cross-conference rivals. This will be the first matchup between the teams since last January when the Cavs earned one of their two wins against the Spurs in their last 11 matchups.

SHARK BITES
  • The Spurs are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games against the Cavaliers.
  • The Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games at home against the Spurs.
  • The Spurs are 17-3 SU in their last 20 games on the road.

Betting on the Cavs at home has been pretty cut and dry this season. They win at home, with a 19-3 record so far, and cover the spread more often than they don’t. That said, they’re just 6-9 against the spread in all their games against Western Conference teams this year and the Spurs have been an excellent bet away from the AT&T Center.

Contrary to the view of the public, the Spurs are one the hottest OVER teams in the association. With an overall OVER/UNDER record of 26-16 and 10-2 in their last 12, bookmakers just can’t seem to hone in how to set totals for this team. Although sportsbooks have been a bit sharper on the Cavs, they too have a tendency to breach totals.

The computer likes the Spurs to win this road game outright so take that into account when books release a spread line for tonight.
