Cavs drop eighth straight

Cleveland suffered its eighth consecutive loss on Wednesday night a 116-110 loss at home to Houston. The Cavs managed to cover for just the second time in this losing streak. Cleveland is 5-19 on the season, 2-9 on the road, 9-14-1 against the spread and 14-10 with the under.

The Cavs are a mess on both sides of the court. The offense is putting up just 102.6 points per game while shooting only 43.4 percent from the field. Defensively, Cleveland is allowing 113.2 points per game while opponents shoot 49.2 percent against them. Collin Sexton has been leading the Cavs with 17.3 points per game while Kevin Love is adding 15.7 points and 10.5 rebounds per contest.

Spurs trying to heat up

San Antonio has won three of its last four games, including two overtime wins over Houston and Sacramento in their last two games. The Spurs haven’t played in six days. The Spurs are 9-14 on the season, 7-6 at home, 6-17 against the spread and 13-10 with the over.

The Spurs are putting up 111.7 points per game this year on offense while shooting 46.5 percent from the field. Defensively, San Antonio is allowing 115.4 points per game, while opponents shoot 46.9 percent against them. The Spurs are being led by DeMar DeRozan, who is averaging 21.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 18.9 points and 7.0 rebounds per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Cavs are 6-13 against the spread in their last 19 Thursday games and 0-5 ATS in their last five road games.

San Antonio

The Spurs are 5-16 against the spread in their last 21 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite.


These two have yet to meet this season, but the Spurs have won six straight and covered in five of the six meetings against the Cavs. Cleveland just hasn’t been competitive on the road. Their last five road games were by at least 18 points and that includes against New York. The Spurs definitely haven’t been great this year, but they are at home and have very fresh legs. Cleveland has no reason to be competitive and they seem to be having issues with their new coach.
