Cavs on skid

Cleveland has lost six straight games coming into tonight following a 122-113 loss at Phoenix on Monday. The Cavs are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five. Cleveland is 19-59 overall, 6-33 on the road, 36-40-2 against the spread and 42-35-1 with the over.

The Cavs have one of the worst offenses in the league, averaging just 104.6 points per game while shooting 44.3 percent as a team. Defensively, Cleveland is giving up 113.9 points per game while opponents shoot a league-best 49.3 percent against them. Kevin Love will be out for tonight’s game with a shoulder injury. Love is averaging 17.6 points and 11.2 rebounds per game this season. Jordan Clarkson is adding 17.1 points per contest.

Kings bow out of playoff chase

Sacramento is coming off a 130-105 loss at home to Houston for a third loss in four games. The Kings have officially been knocked out of the playoffs. Sacramento is now 38-40 on the season, 23-16 at home, 44-33-1 against the spread and 39-38-1 with the over.

The Kings are a solid offensive team, putting up 113.9 points per game while shooting 46.3 percent as a squad. Defensively, Sacramento is giving up 114.9 points per game while opponents shoot 46.3 percent against them. Buddy Hield is putting up 20.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per game while De’Aaron Fox is adding 17.4 points and 7.3 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Cavs are 9-21 against the spread in their last 30 against Pacific Division opponents and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six road games.


The Kings are 12-3-1 against the spread in their last 16 against Central Division opponents and 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a failed cover.


The Cavs are struggling right now, losing four of their last five by double digits. They are in the midst of a West Coast road trip and I expect this to be another ugly loss. While the Kings are out of the playoff mix, they still have a lot of young talent that is trying to prove themselves. I think they will take advantage of this poor Cleveland offense and roll to a big win.

NBA Prediction: Sacramento Kings -9.5
