Bucks Haven’t Been Able to Solve Cavaliers Recently

The Cleveland Cavaliers are relying on LeBron James more than ever and the results are speaking for themselves. Cleveland has won 18 of its last 19 and sets its sights on the young Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

MyBookie opened the wine and gold as 2-point road favorites with a total of 217.

  • The Cavaliers are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games with one day off between games.
  • The Cavaliers are 5-0 SU in their last five games against the Bucks.

James is averaging 25.8 points, 13.4 assists and 11 boards during a five-game winning streak.
