Can the Cavs continue to take care of business vs Wizards?

The Cleveland Cavaliers bounce into Washington to face the Wizards in an Eastern Conference showdown. The Cavs are on their third game in four nights and took care of business at home vs the Jazz last night. They’ll face a Washington team that is 8-5 SU at home this season and has won both of their games since point John Wall returned from injury. The Cavs opened as slight road-dogs to get the W.

SHARK BITES
  • Cleveland is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the last seven games in this matchup.
  • Washington is 2-0 SU in two games since John Wall returned from injury.

The Wizards are trying to make an impact in the depleted Eastern Conference but can’t seem to get over the hump. Washington is 16-13 SU this season and is still trying to chase the Cavs and Celtics despite Wizards’ backers claiming “this is their year.” The Wiz may also be shorthanded tonight as forward Otto Porter left their last game with a hip injury and is questionable to lace ‘em up for this matchup. As Washington is 1-5 SU in its last six games vs Cleveland, bettors may want to use caution if placing a wager on the Wizards tonight.

Cleveland continues to be on a roll and LeBron James is superhuman. The “chosen one” secured his third triple-double in four games and the Cavs are 17-1 SU in their last 18 games. The veteran team is also expected to be missing some pieces in their lineup tonight as Tristan Thompson and Dwyane Wade have been ruled out. That shouldn’t matter much to a powerhouse like Cleveland who is 9-4 SU in 13 road games this season. Bettors should feel confident backing the Cavs in this matchup.

The total opened at 213 and the OVER would be a respectable wager. In the last three games, these two teams combined for an average of 256 points and the OVER was shattered each time. The teams empty the chamber when they face-off as they jostle for Eastern Conference supremacy.
