The Cavaliers have pretty much wrapped up everything in terms of the best record in the NBA so they may not have much motivation to face the Pacers in this basketball betting matchup on Monday. Let’s take a look at the Cavaliers versus the Pacers.
Bet on basketball scheduling information tells us that the Cavaliers played yesterday in Boston and they finish up the regular season at home versus Philadelphia. The Pacers finish at home vs. Milwaukee on Wednesday. The basketball betting trends favor the Cavaliers in this matchup. Cleveland has won 9 of the last 10 games between the two teams and in the basketball odds they are 7-2-1. At Indiana, the Cavaliers have won three of the last four games between the two teams and they are 3-1 against the basketball odds. The teams have met three times already this season with the Cavaliers winning two of the three straight up. Indiana is 2-1 against the basketball betting line in those games.
Cleveland has been an excellent team for gamblers who bet on basketball this season. The Cavaliers have been far better at home though where they have the NBA’s best record. On the road the Cavaliers are right around the .500 mark versus the bet on basketball number. Cleveland has the best defense in the NBA as bet on basketball stats indicate and their offense is solid led by probable MVP LeBron James.
Indiana is really the opposite of Cleveland in some respects as bet on basketball numbers indicate. The Pacers have a good offense but a rotten defense. Danny Granger is the main scoring threat for the Pacers as bet on basketball stats indicate. Indiana has been a solid team against the bet on basketball number at home and on the road. The Pacers usually score enough points to be competitive and with Granger healthy, they are always a threat to cover the basketball betting number. The problem for Indiana is a defense that ranks right near the bottom of the NBA.
Four of the last five games between the two have gone under the bet on basketball total. Before that basketball betting streak the previous four games had all gone over.
