NBA Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games. Cleveland is 3-10-1 ATS in its last 14 Friday games.

Washington

The Wizards are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. Washington is 2-5 ATS in its last seven home games.

Prediction:

Washington cannot find any consistency this season and this could be a prime opportunity for the Cavs to snap their losing streak. Cleveland still has a very capable interior in Love and Thompson, so as long as it finds good backcourt play tonight against a Wizards team that plays at a fast pace and isn't good defensively it should be in good shape.
