Cavs Cashing UNDERs With Ease

Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been nearly unbeatable at home this season and will be looking to keep up that hot play at Quicken Loans Arena Monday evening when they welcome their northern neighbors, the Toronto Raptors, to town. Cleveland is a red-hot 14-1 on home court in the 2015-16 NBA campaign.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 5-1 in the Raptors' last 6 games.
  • The underdog is 15-3 ATS in the last 18 meetings between the Raptors and Cavaliers.
  • The Raptors are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.

If you’re a totals bettor and haven’t taken note of the wine and gold, it’s about time you did. The UNDER has paid out in 13 of Cleveland’s previous 16 games heading into the tilt.

The Raps are playing in the second of back-to-back games and are coming off a disappointing 115-113 home loss to the Chicago Bulls. Toronto held a comfortable lead for most of the game before allowing Bulls’ star shooting guard Jimmy Butler to score 40 points in the second half – a franchise record. The Raptors entered the game as one of the better second-half teams in the league with a +3.9 scoring margin.

Magic Have Awful History vs Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers are beginning to stretch the gap between themselves and everyone else in the Eastern Conference and will be looking for their eighth victory in 10 games when they welcome the Orlando Magic to town Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The Magic are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 road games.
  • The Cavaliers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games.
  • The Magic are 0-5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings between the teams in Cleveland.

To say the Cavs have given the Magic fits as of late would be a massive understatement. Orlando is winless in their previous 12 games against the wine and gold. The good news for Magic backers is they’ve recently fared well coming off a loss, going 4-1 ATS in their last 5 after dropping the previous game.

The UNDER is trending ahead of this one for both sides. Cleveland has seen its prior six contests go below the closing total, while the UNDER is also 4-1 in the last five meetings between the clubs in Ohio.

Pacers-Pistons Games Cashing OVERs

November seems like a long time ago for the Indiana Pacers, as the team failed to follow up that hot month by gliding through a rocky December. The Pacers have an opportunity to start 2016 with some consistency when the Detroit Pistons come to town in Saturday’s NBA action.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 6-0 in the Pacers last 6 games following a ATS loss.
  • The Pistons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings with Indiana.
  • The underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between the Pistons and Pacers.

When the Pacers and Pistons collide, high-scoring affairs are the story. The OVER is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings between the teams. Detroit comes into the game cashing OVER tickets with ease, with the O/U going 8-2 in their previous 10 tilts.

Indiana allowed an average of 87.5 points in a pair of consecutive wins over Minnesota and Atlanta before losing to the Chicago Bulls in overtime and then allowing the Milwaukee Bucks to shoot a sizzling 58.4 percent from the floor in Thursday’s 120-116 loss.

Needless to say, solid efforts on the defensive end of the floor are going to be needed from the Pacers this year if they have any aspirations of making a deep playoff run.

Bulls are a Great Bet vs Raptors

The Toronto Raptors are looking like a different team as of late and will have an opportunity to avenge their lone loss in their last five games when they welcome the Chicago Bulls to town in Sunday’s slate of NBA action.

Shark Bites
  • The Bulls are 6-0 SU and ATS in their last six games against the Raptors.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Raptors' last six games in January.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Bulls' last eight games.

Like most teams, the key to Toronto’s success has been success on the defensive end of the floor. The Raps have won 14 straight games when holding the opposition to under 100 points. That’s bad news for Dinos backers, as the Bulls have reached triple digits in six straight games heading into the tilt.

Stringing covers together for Canada’s lone NBA club has not been an easy task. Toronto — who covered the -6 spread in a 104-94 victory over Charlotte on New Year’s Day — is an ugly 0-7 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS win.

Hawks are Going Streaking

The Atlanta Hawks are beginning to conjure up some of the magic of last season’s 60-win campaign and are winners of seven of their last eight heading into Sunday’s matchup with the New York Knicks. The Hawks are averaging 112.9 points in its last seven wins, including a 117-98 hammering of New York on Dec. 26.

Shark Bites
  • The Knicks are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games in January.
  • The Hawks are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games against the Knicks.
  • The Hawks are 11-0 ATS in their last 11 games on the road in January.

Meanwhile, the Knicks are trending in the other direction. Carmelo Anthony and company have dropped five out of their last six thanks largely in part due to ineffective fourth quarters. Perhaps the friendly confines of Madison Square Garden can cure what ails the Knicks, as each of New York’s previous four losses have come on the road.

Atlanta has taken the first two meetings of the season in this series by an average of 15 points. For trend seekers, totals bettors will be happy to know the OVER is 6-1 in the last seven clashes between the Eastern Conference foes.
