The Cavaliers have the best home record in the NBA and they are unlikely to be challenged by the Wizards. Let’s take a look at some of the basketball betting stats for this matchup.
Basketball betting trends show that Cleveland has won 6 of the last 10 games against Washington and in basketball odds they are 5-5 for those games. The Cavaliers have won four of the last five home games against Washington but they are only 2-3 against the basketball odds. The teams have met twice this season and the home team won each time. The Wizards though covered both games as they lost by only four points as 16 point underdogs in NBA betting back in December.
The Wizards have been a mess this season both straight up and versus the basketball betting number. It hasn’t mattered whether they are home or on the road in basketball betting. The one wildcard that might make the Wizards attractive in NBA betting on Wednesday is Gilbert Arenas. He has returned after missing most of the season and although he is not at full strength, he can impact the basketball betting pointspread.
Cleveland has simply been fantastic at home this season. They have been a basketball betting cash machine at home this season. The NBA betting odds makers have underrated the Cavaliers at home and gamblers have cashed in big. Cleveland has a great defense, (#1 in the league as basketball betting stats show) an efficient offense led by LeBron James and a good supporting cast. Gamblers either take the Cavaliers in basketball betting or they don’t play the game.
Six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total including three of the last four. Four of the last five at Cleveland have stayed under the NBA betting total. That could easily happen again considering the Cavaliers have the best defense in the NBA as basketball betting statistics indicate.
