Thunder, Cavs put win streaks on line
A pair of hot teams clash in Cleveland tonight at 8:00PM ET as both the Thunder and Cavs will put their respective winning streaks on the line.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the Cavs opened as a 3.5-point favorite over the Thunder but the line has been bet down to Cleveland -3.
Oklahoma City has won six straight games while Cleveland has won three in a row. Off a win this season, the Cavs are just 5-10 against the spread but that number is a bit deceiving.
That's because they've won by a margin of +6.9, so they're not covering but they're still winning by at a decent clip off victories this season.
As for the Thunder, they're 9-7 against the spread coming off a win this season, winning by a margin of +10.2. Cleveland is also just 4-7 against the number as a home team this season, while Oklahoma City is 1-2 ATS as a road underdog.
Recent history shows that the home team is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two teams while the Thunder is just 1-4 ATS in its last five games versus the Cavs. OKC has also struggled to cover in Cleveland of late, going 2-7 ATS in its last nine road games versus the Cavs.
