Bet on the Floundering Cavs at Your Own Risk

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in disarray right now thanks to losses in nine of their last 12 games. Things won’t get any easier on Tuesday when LeBron James and company travel to the Lone Star State to renew acquaintances with the San Antonio Spurs.

Xbet opened the Cavs as 1-point road favorites with a total of 208.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 14 of the Cavaliers’ last 20 games with a closing total of 208.5 or less.
  • The Cavaliers are 0-6 SU and ATS in their last six games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The Cavaliers are 2-13 SU in their last 15 games against the Spurs.

Cleveland was hammered by the Oklahoma City Thunder 148-124 on Saturday while matching the most points allowed in franchise history in a regulation game. Over their past six games, the Cavaliers have five losses, three of them by margins of 34, 28 and 24. As a result of their struggles, the seat under head coach Tyronn Lue has started to warm up in Northeast Ohio.

The Spurs possess the best home record in the Association at 19-3 SU but fell 94-86 to the Indiana Pacers on Sunday while committing 20 turnovers and ending a 14-game home winning streak in the process. The Spurs won both meetings between the clubs last season, including a 103-74 blowout at the AT&T Center.

Cleveland is by far the worst wager in the NBA at 12-32-1 ATS. In the Cavs’ last eight games, they’re an awful 0-8 ATS.
