BETTING TRENDS

LA Lakers are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 games against Cleveland.

LA Lakers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against Cleveland.

LA Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of LA Lakers' last 8 games when playing on the road against Cleveland..

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Cleveland's last 5 games.

Cleveland are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games.

The total has gone OVER in 13 of Cleveland's last 18 games against LA Lakers.

Cleveland are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Cavaliers have been pretty good this season and have been one of the best records at home with an 10-1 record but they have been struggling offensively in their last games averaging only 98.2 points last 5. On the other hand, the Lakers are whole different team now and are on fire offensively scoring over 120 points in their last 10 games. The Cavs beat the Lakers last month in L.A. but the Lakers are playing very different now and with the Cavs recent struggles to score I think the Lakers can win this game or at least keep it close to cover the spread.

PICK: Lakers +4.5 (-110)
