Cavs drop fifth straight in Chicago
Injury-plagued Cleveland fell to 1-11 on the season Saturday night with a 99-98 loss at the Bulls. The Cavaliers rallied back from a 16-point deficit in the contest, but were unable to pull it out.

NBA Betting Trends
The Hornets are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games after allowing 100 or more points in their previous game. Charlotte is 1-4-1 ATS in its last six meetings in Cleveland.
The Cavaliers are 7-2-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall. The under is 4-0 in the last four Cleveland games following a straight up loss.
The Cavaliers have only won one home game this season, against lowly Atlanta, and every other home contest has been a loss by at least nine points. Charlotte is solid and Walker is having a huge season, so the dreadful year for Cleveland should continue. You can take a shot on the Cavs keeping it close if you want, but they stink and I think the better play is going with the stronger team in Charlotte that just won by 10 at Detroit.
