The San Antonio Spurs travel to Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers Wednesday night and Ron McCoy says that the Cavs will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting at San Antonio –2, but the line has since risen to San Antonio –2.5.

McCoy writes: Wednesday a road weary Spurs limp into Cleveland and expect an easy victory over the tema they defeated in the NBA Championship last year. OK maybe they won't limp in but it is not the team of last year with Parker out. Cleveland is not much better with their injuries but they proved to Orlando and the rest of the world they are not out of this yet. Expect a fired up Larry Hughes and LeBron James to upset the Spurs today.

Public betting information currently shows that of the 729 wagers placed on tonight’s game, 65% of bettors like the Spurs –2.5. Accuscore agrees with the public and has the Spurs as a 55% favorite.
