Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin

The Nets, Raptors and Hornets have reportedly expressed interest in Andre Drummond. Drummond is on an expiring deal, and Cleveland trading for Jarrett Allen was a tell that they aren't super interested in retaining him, so it would make sense for them to send him elsewhere at the deadline rather than lose him for nothing. That said, Drummond hasn't received much interest on the trade market over the years, so it's unclear exactly what these opposing teams would be willing to give up. In terms of fantasy hoops, his best landing spot would be Charlotte, while the worst would be Toronto (for both him and Chris Boucher), but to be clear, nothing is imminent at the moment.

Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin

Paul George (right foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Cavaliers. George is back in Los Angeles, where he continues to rehab his right foot/bone edema injury. Friday night, with Patrick Beverley (knee) back in the fold, the Clippers started he and Reggie Jackson in the backcourt. They could do the same on Sunday, as Luke Kennard struggled while in the starting lineup. Jackson is worth taking a flier on, but if anything George's absence will continue to mean a very high usage rate for Kawhi Leonard.

Cavs vs. Clippers Betting Prediction

The Cavs are winless against the spread in their last four games versus the Clippers and are 0-4 against the number in their last four road games in this series. Cleveland has also not covered in seven straight road games, is 0-7 against the spread in its last seven games as a dog and 0-6 ATS in its last six games as a road underdog. On the other side, the Clippers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus an opponent with a losing record.
