Cavaliers are a Terrible Bet at the Q

LeBron James has long reigned supreme as the top player in the Eastern Conference, but don’t tell that to DeMar DeRozan. The red-hot DeRozan and his Toronto Raptors are set to tangle with King James’ Cavs in an Eastern Conference finals rematch tonight.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 2-5 SU and ATS in their last seven games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The Cavaliers are 12-2 SU in their last 14 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The visiting team is 2-8 SU and ATS in its last 10 games in this matchup.

Sportsbooks opened the Raps as 5.5-point underdogs with an OVER/UNDER of 208.5.

DeRozan leads the NBA in scoring at an average of 34 points, and he hung 32 at home against the wine and gold on October 28. The Raptors are firing on all cylinders offensively right now by averaging 114.3 points during a three-game winning streak.

Cleveland is unsurprisingly on a tear to start the year, and a large reason for that is their success from beyond the arc. The Cavs set an NBA record by making double-digit 3-pointers in nine straight games to begin the campaign. Power forward Kevin Love has recorded four straight double-doubles as well.

As good as Cleveland has been in Ohio lately, it’s been a different story when it comes to covering the spread. The Cavaliers are an ugly 0-4-1 ATS in their last five home tilts.
