Bet Tonight's NBA Action

OUR PREDICTION: The Cavs were routed 108-78 last night by the Clippers but LeBron James and Kyrie Irving didn't play. With both players presumably back in the lineup tonight, the Cavs should roll against a Lakers team in clear tank mode. The Lakers are just 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven home games, are 2-10-1 against the number in their last 13 games overall, and are 2-8-1 at the betting window in their last 11 games coming off a loss.
