It is the first game of a three-game road trip for the Cavaliers. Basketball betting odds show that Cleveland is a solid road favorite in this matchup. Bet on basketball trends support Cleveland in this game. They have won 7 of the last 10 games against the Clippers straight up and they are 6-4 against the basketball odds.
Los Angeles has actually won three of the last five games at home against the Cavaliers as bet on basketball stats show but they have dropped the past two. The teams met at Cleveland in January and the Cavaliers blew away the Clippers by a score of 112-95 as bet on basketball results tell us.
The Cavaliers have a winning record both at home and on the road versus the basketball odds this season but they have been far better at home. Cleveland has the best defense in the league as bet on basketball stats show. Their offense is just outside the Top 10 in the league and LeBron James has been battling Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant for the overall scoring lead.
The Clippers have been rotten against the bet on basketball pointspread this season and it hasn’t mattered whether they are at home or on the road. Most gamblers will go against the Clippers in this game but one note of caution. The Clippers did beat the Celtics in Los Angeles so they can sometimes get up for the big games. Al Thornton leads the team in scoring as bet on basketball stats indicate but at just about 17 points per game that is not saying very much. Baron Davis has been an official bust in his first season in Los Angeles and no longer impacts the bet on basketball lines like he used to.
Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the bet on basketball total. Three of the last five games at Los Angeles have gone under the basketball betting total. The Cavaliers have been a solid under team versus the bet on basketball team on the road this season.
