Kings and Cavs are Trending UNDER

DeMarcus Cousins Kyrie Irving

The Cleveland Cavaliers-Sacramento Kings series isn’t a premiere NBA matchup, however totals bettors have been getting rewarded when the two sides collide. In the last eight meetings between the squads, the UNDER is a solid 6-2. They’ll renew acquaintances Monday in Ohio.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in the Cavaliers' last four games after a win.
  • The Kings are 5-1 SU in their last six games against the Central Division.
  • The favored team is 4-11 ATS in its last 15 games in this matchup.

The Kings are a team in turmoil right now, which is nothing new for the downtrodden franchise. Sacramento has lost seven of its last eight, which has effectively caused the seat under head coach George Karl to warm up. DeMarcus Cousins and company have allowed an awful 128 points in each of its last two setbacks.

Cleveland is still struggling to adjust to newly appointed bench boss Tyronne Lue’s system and is clearly experiencing some growing pains, but it’s important for the wine and gold to get that out of the way well ahead of the playoffs. The wine and gold may be a rocky play over the course of the next month or so, so bettors should approach this volatile team with caution.

Clippers Own Series With 76ers

Chris Paul Jahlil Okafor

The Philadelphia 76ers have spent the better part of the last three seasons being doormats for the rest of the NBA, and the Los Angeles Clippers are especially enjoying seeing Philly on the schedule. The Clips are a perfect 8-0 SU and ATS in their last eight matchups with the Sixers. They can make that nine in a row with a win on Monday in the City of Brotherly Love.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 17 of the 76ers' last 24 games as home underdogs.
  • The Clippers are 5-0 ATS in their last five games when favored by 9.5 or less.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Clippers' last 10 games with no days off between games.

L.A.'s last four wins over the lowly 76ers came by margins of 45, 36, 31 and 21 points. Sportsbooks opened the Clippers as 9-point road favorites for the affair.

Philadelphia ended a four-game skid on Saturday with a win over fellow Eastern Conference cellar dweller Brooklyn to increase its win total to eight. While the Sixers are still one of the worst teams in the league, the pre-Christmas addition of point guard Ish Smith has transformed the look of this team. Before the acquisition of the speedy Smith, Philly was an awful 1-30 SU.

The Sixers have been a solid play at home as of late, with the squad covering the spread in six of its previous eight tilts in front of their hometown fans.

Knicks are on an Ugly ATS Skid

Kristaps Porzingis

You'll have to forgive even the most passionate Denver Nuggets fans if their mind is on something else ahead of the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 Sunday matchup with the Carolina Panthers. Regardless, the Nuggets will take their talents to New York and tangle with a floundering Knicks team that's looked more like a pretender than a contender as of late.

Shark Bites
  • The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. the Eastern Conference.
  • The Knicks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 day of rest.
  • The home team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings between the Knicks and Nuggets.

The Nuggets have flown under the radar this season as one of the best bets in the NBA at 28-21-2 ATS. Denver picked up its third win in four games thanks to a 115-110 home triumph over the Chicago Bulls on Friday, while the Knickerbockers have dropped four straight SU and ATS to sink farther in the Eastern Conference standings.

Totals bettors, take note: the UNDER is trending heading into this one. New York has gone UNDER the closing total in five of its last six, and the UNDER is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these clubs.
