DENVER KEY TRENDS: The Nuggets are 11-5 against the spread in their last 16 games overall and are 21-5 against the number in their last 26 games after scoring more than 125 points in their previous game. That said, they have not been a good bet playing on zero rest, going just 2-7 at the betting window in their last nine games when playing the second contest of a back-to-back.

CLEVELAND KEY TRENDS: The Cavaliers are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games playing on one day of rest and have covered in four of their last five games overall. That said, they're just 4-10 at the betting window versus Western Conference foes and have failed to cover in five of their last six games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in its previous game as well.
