Are the Washington Wizards and host Cleveland Cavaliers going to play a high-scoring game that goes over the betting total tonight? Tip-off is slated for 8PM ET.
705 Washington Wizards at 706 Cleveland Cavaliers, 8PM ET
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Cavaliers are a 5.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 218.5 points.
The spread remains at -5.5 where it opened, while the over-under has dropped a point from 219.5. Cleveland is at -5.5 at most books, but can also be found at -6 through shopping around. The total ranges from 218 points all the way to 219.5.
As of Thursday afternoon, 76 percent of public bets are coming in on the Cavaliers. Online wager info also states that 51 percent of bets are on the under.
INJURY TO WATCH
Washington does not have any injuries to report. Cleveland one has one injury as point guard George Hill (ankle) is questionable to play.
It's refreshing to see a late-season NBA game with only one combined injury on the report. With two healthy teams and plenty of offensive weapons, expect there to be plenty of points scored. With the game in Cleveland, the home team should dictate the pace of play Although the Cavs have played four unders in a row, I feel like the recipe is there for a shootout tonight. Take the over.
