According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Cavaliers are a slight favorite on the road, as they are getting odds of -1.5 points against the Clippers. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 208 points.
The Clippers are 42-22 on the season, 20-11 on the road and 31-30-3 against the spread. Cleveland is 46-18 overall, 19-12 on the road and 29-32 against the spread. Cleveland has won and covered the spread in three straight against Los Angeles, including a 115-102 home win back on Jan. 21.
Cleveland has won five of its last six and gone 4-2 against the spread in that stretch. The Clippers have won five of their last seven but are just 3-4 ATS in that stretch. Cleveland has put on a real emphasis to bunker down after their three-game losing streak a few weeks ago. They seem to be playing stronger now and have put up at least 100 points in their last six games. The Clippers still lack a lot of consistency and don’t have the urgency that Cleveland feels right now. With this a big game on national TV, expect Cleveland to come out strong.
