Cavs Out for Blood vs Nets Wednesday

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be looking to put an embarrassing loss to the Golden State Warriors behind them when they visit the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday evening. The Cavs, who were thumped 132-98 by the Warriors on Monday, are currently 12.5-point road favorites in Brooklyn.

Shark Bites
  • The Nets are 1-8 SU and ATS in their last nine games.
  • UNDER has gone 10-3 in the Cavaliers’ last 13 road games.
  • The Cavs are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games versus the Atlantic Division.

Brooklyn has been bad all season long but has been especially atrocious recently. Since changing the calendar to January, the Nets have gone 2-8 SU and ATS and take a three-game SU and ATS losing streak into Wednesday’s meeting with the Cavs.

The Nets have been regularly losing by double-digits as well, dropping six of those eight January defeats by at least 10 points, including an average margin of defeat of 17.3 points in their last three games.

The two teams have met once already this season with Cleveland winning 90-88 but failing to cover the spread as 9-point home faves back on November 28.

Despite the fact that the Cavs are just 6-4 SU and 4-6 ATS in games coming off a loss this season, don’t be surprised to see LeBron James and Co. look to make a statement after a humiliating loss to the Warriors.
