Wizards vs. Cavaliers Free Pick
The Cleveland Cavaliers return from a three-day hiatus to face the surging Washington Wizards tonight at 8PM ET on ESPN.
Cleveland is 42-17 on the season, 25-5 at home and 25-31-3 against the spread. Washington is 30-30 overall, 14-14 on the road and 32-28 against the spread. Cleveland has won four of the last six against Washington, but the Wizards have covered the spread in four straight in this series.
Washington has won four straight coming into tonight to finally get to the .500 mark and move into position for a run at the playoffs. Cleveland has lost three of its last five and the Cavs are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight. Cleveland has surprisingly struggled in conference games this season, going 14-22-1 against the spread against the East. Washington, on the other hand, is 22-17 ATS in conference play. The Cavs just haven’t found much chemistry as of late while Washington has started hitting its stride. This game should be close even if the Wizards don’t win.
