Basketball betting on Thursday includes a nationally televised game on TNT between the Portland Trail Blazers and Cleveland Cavaliers.
Gamblers love to bet on basketball TV games and this one has superstar players Brandon Roy and LeBron James.
Basketball betting odds favor the Cavaliers in this matchup and there is a lot to like about Cleveland. The situation also does not favor Portland as they are playing the fourth game of a five-game road trip as the basketball betting schedule indicates. They are also in a back-to-back basketball betting situation as they played last night at Indiana.
The basketball betting trends really favor the Cavaliers. Cleveland has won 8 of the last 10 games against Portland and they are 8-2 against the basketball odds in those games. At Cleveland, the Cavaliers have won the last five games against Portland and they are 5-0 against the basketball odds in those games. The teams met earlier this season in Portland and the Cavaliers came away with a 104-98 victory.
Portland has not been a good team on the road versus the basketball betting pointspread this season. The Blazers do most of their damage at home. Brandon Roy continues to lead them in scoring as basketball betting stats illustrate.
Cleveland has been fantastic this season at home against the basketball betting number. The Cavaliers have the top ranked defense in the league as basketball betting information demonstrates and their offense is good enough to cover the spread most of the time at home. It hasn’t really mattered how high the numbers have been, as the Cavaliers have just been a moneymaking machine at home this season versus the bet on basketball number. LeBron James continues to lead them in most categories as basketball betting stats indicate.
The over/under basketball betting numbers are split at 5-5 in the last ten meetings between the two teams. At Cleveland, three of the last five games have gone over the bet on basketball total.
