Cavaliers at Clippers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Clippers 125, Cavaliers 109
Money line (ML)
The Cavs have lost six in a row and eight of nine. The Clippers have won two in a row and kick-off a homestand Sunday night. They are healthy except for the absence of George and they are the third-highest scoring team in the league, averaging 115.3 points per game.
Cleveland is missing key players and is playing bad basketball. That said, the money line is a waste of time at -650. PASS on the money line tonight. The Clips will win but there isn’t enough of a profit margin to wager. Go with the spread instead.
Against the spread (ATS)
The Cavs have failed to cover the spread in their last nine games. In their eight losses over the last nine games, they have lost by an average of 19.3 points per game.
They have been getting blown out consistently. One of those losses was 121-99 to the Clippers in Cleveland. Take this bet confidently. Go CLIPPERS -11.5 (-105).
Six of the Clippers’ last seven games have gone Over. So have Cleveland’s last three games. LA is 17-10 O/U this season. Expect them to score a lot and that will make it so the Cavs don’t have to do much to still hit the Over. Take OVER 220.5 (-110).
