Basketball betting fans will see the Cleveland Cavaliers favored at home on Tuesday as they host the Washington Wizards.
It is the first half of an NBA betting back-to-back for the Wizards as they host Miami tomorrow. Here is a look at some of the trends and results for this series between the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers.
Basketball betting started slowly on the Cavaliers this season but they were a great team at home a year ago. They have won the last five home games in this basketball betting series against Washington. Last year the teams split their four meeting with each team winning their home games. The Cavs won 98-86 at home back in April as Lebron James scored a team-high 21 points.
Mo Williams scored 14 points on 6-12 shooting. Cleveland led from start to finish in that basketball betting contest. In the other home win the Cavaliers won 93-89 but they did not cover the basketball betting number. Mo Williams had 24 points while Delonte West had 18. Antawn Jamison had 28 points while Mike James had 26 points for the Wizards.
Washington won at home 109-101 in basketball betting even though LeBron had 31 points and Mo Williams added 19. Caron Butler led the Wizards with 25 while Gilbert Arenas had a double-double with 11 points and 10 assists. The other home win in basketball betting for Washington was an 80-77 slugfest. LeBron had 30 points and 10 assists. Antawn Jamison led the Wizards with a double-double as he had 26 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Jamison hit the game-winning shot with 10.5 seconds left. Caron Butler added 19 points and seven rebounds for the Wizards.
The Wizards have started strongly this NBA betting season as they are 2-1 both straight up and against the basketball betting number. Gilbert Arenas leads them at 28 points per game as NBA betting statistics show. He also leads them in assists while Mike Miller leads the team in rebounds.
Cleveland is 2-2 straight up this season but just 1-3 against the basketball betting pointspread. LeBron James leads them in scoring, assists and rebounds this NBA betting season. Cleveland has definitely disappointed early this basketball betting season as many people didn’t believe they would lose two games this early.
This could be a competitive game in basketball betting. The Wizards are vastly improved this season while Cleveland has struggled.
