The (2-12) SU (7-7) ATS Cleveland Cavaliers got their second taste of victory in the 2018-19 season on the 13th of this month in a 113-89 blowout over Charlotte as 9 point home UNDERDOGS ATS. However, the next night they were back to their losing ways in a 119-95 SU loss as 11′ point road UNDERDOGS AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD.

Rookie point guard Collin Sexton led Cleveland with 24-points as Cleveland allowed 41 first-quarter points in defeat.

  • Cleveland is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 when giving up 100 or more points or more their previous contest.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 the Cavaliers last four after allowing 100 or more point the game before.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in Cleveland last seven overall.
  • The Cavaliers are 5-1 the last six between the teams.

The (7-6) SU (6-7) ATS Detroit Pistons have won three of four both SU/ATS and are three games behind first-place Milwaukee in the Central division. Detroit is back in action after a 106-104 SU win over Toronto on November 14th as 9′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

Former Raptors and current Pistons head coach Dwane Casey didn’t put too much emphasis on his return to Toronto; he just wanted his team to play competitive basketball. Detroit outscored Toronto in the final period as Reggie Bullock hit a buzzer beater for the win.

  • Detroit is 12-5 ATS their last seventeen vs. Teams with a losing SU record.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 4 of Detroit last five when they’ve scored 100 or more points their previous game.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 the last five times the teams have played in Detroit
  • Detroit is 0-4 ATS their last four at home.

Monday’s game is at 7:00 PM EST at Little Caesars Arena in renovated downtown Detroit, Michigan. The Local Network will be broadcasting.

The Opening Betting Line has Cleveland as 11 point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 213′ points for Monday’s contest.

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert brung an NBA title to Northeast Ohio, but now he’s finding out the impact Akron native LeBron James had on the organization. Last season All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving said he no longer wanted to play with LeBron and Gilbert sent him to Boston as a decision he wishes he regrets. However, they should finish with the worst record in the NBA which would make them the favorites for the first overall pick in the 2019 draft.

Larry Drew takes over for Tyronn Lue who was fired on October 28th and insists he’ll turn rookie point guard Collin Sexton (12.9) ppg into an All-Star.

Cleveland averages (103.4) ppg as a team which is 28th in the NBA but with leading scorer and rebounder Kevin Love out until December with a foot injury someone needs to take the lead. Tristan Thompson (10.8) rebounds per game will do his part on the glass for a team that ranks 19th league-wide grabbing (44.3) rebounds per game. The backcourt of George Hill (12.6) ppg and Jordan Clarkson along with Rodney Hood are all capable scorers, but Sexton is the future.

The Cavaliers are giving up (111.8) ppg to the opposition which is 19th league-wide. Cleveland ranks last in the NBA in field goal percentage by opponents as they allow (48.7%) shooting. Leadership is missing on a team that is now searching for an identity after the best player in the world took his talent to Los Angeles.

Since Drew has taken over, they’re starting to play more team ball instead of isolation. An emphasis on defense will get the Cavalier their first road win of the season.

Bovada.Lv list the Cleveland Cavaliers win total at 30′ for 2018-19.

With all the talk in the Eastern Conference surrounding Boston, Toronto, Milwaukee, and Indiana this Sports Handicapper believes the Detroit Piston could be the team which could reign supreme in June. Afterall Casey has previous Eastern Conference coaching experience when it, and they’ve got Center Andre Drummond (16.2) rgp who leads the 4th ranked rebounding team in the NBA Power Forward Blake Griffin is equally effective on the glass and also scores a team-high (24.5) ppg. Detroit’s 18th ranked scoring offense averages (109.9) points per contest, but they have room for improvement. Shooting guard Luke Kennard is out until later this month; his ability to shoot from beyond the three-point line will be needed for a team that ranks last in the NBA.

Point Guard Reggie Jackson (15.7) ppg with a team-best (4.9) assists per contest is a multi dimensional player who’s growing into a leadership role. However, they may have to add a proven scorer to come off the bench to take it to the next level.

Detroit allows opponents (110.7) points per contest good enough for 16th in the NBA while allowing (46.5%) shooting from the field by opponents, 20th in the league.

The team got confirmation of how defense wins games with their impressive performance as they held Toronto to 16 fourth-quarter points for the best win of the 2018 season thus far. The Pistons need to play tight defense from start to finish, after all, they’re well rested.

Bovada.Lv list Detroit Pistons win total at 38 games for 2018-19.

The (6-4) SU/ATS Los Angeles Clippers are on a two-game winning streak both SU/ATS after their 120-109 home victory over Minnesota as a five and a half point home FAVORITE ATS.

Los Angeles is tied with Sacramento for second place in the Pacific division both teams trail Golden State by three and a half games. Forwards Tobias Harris and Danilo Gallinari scored twenty-two points apiece in the win over the Timberwolves as the Clippers outscored the T-Wolves in each quarter.

  • The Clippers are 1-4 ATS the last five meetings between the teams.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 6 of the Clippers last seven on Thursday’s.
  • The Clippers are 0-4 ATS their last four on the road vs. Teams with a winning home record.
  • The OVER has been profitable three of the Clippers last five on the road.

The (8-3) SU/ATS Portland Trailblazers have the third best record in the Western Conference behind Golden State and Denver. Portland beat an excellent Milwaukee team 118-103 SU as a two-point home UNDERDOG ATS.

They’ve won 5 of six SU, and from the looks of things, the Northwest could be the most competitive in Basketball. Denver, Minnesota, Utah, and Oklahoma City could all qualify for postseason play.

  • The OVER is 4-0 Portland last four on Thursday’s.
  • Portland is 9-1 ATS their last ten on Thursday’s.
  • Portland has stayed UNDER the total their last 3 of their last four at home.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 5 of Portland last six after they scored 100 or more points the previous game.

Thursday’s game is at 10:00 PM EST at the Moda Center in beautiful Portland, Oregon. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Opening Betting Line has the Clippers as five-point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 225 points for Thursday’s contest.

Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers seems to always have the team in the thick of the playoff hunt only to fall short when it counts the most.

Management decided to part way’s with Blake Griffin along with Chris Paul last season and DeAndre Jordan signed with Dallas in July of 2018. Rivers seems to have the new cast of characters playing with a sense of purpose. Small

Forward Tobias Harris tops the team with a (21.3) ppg scoring average on an offense that averages (116.2) ppg which ranks eighth in the league. The Clipper is especially good shooting from beyond the three-point line as Harris, Gallinari and Lou Williams averaging over 40.0% good enough to be ranked third league-wide as a unit. Even without Griffin and Jordan who were known to be terrific in the post, the Clippers are still among the top ten leading rebounding teams.

In Doc Rivers fashion his team is efficient on defense as opponents are shooting just (43.2%) good enough for fifth in the league.

The Clippers can run with any team in the league except for Golden State; the Clippers play a similar style as Portland with the only thing separating them, and that’s the star power of Portland All-Star guard Damian Lillard.

Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Clippers at +3,000 to win the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Pacific.

All seems well in the Rose City even after last season’s debacle in the first round of the playoffs. Head Coach Terry Stotts welcomes the challenges of the 2018-19 season with a competitive attitude. He’ll have too as every team in their division is capable of making the 2018 NBA Western Conference finals.

Before the season began, all of the talk surrounding the Northwest division was about the Utah Jazz, but Denver is performing at an elite level so far.

Portland averages (117.3) ppg, seventh in the NBA with Lillard leading the way with (26.7) ppg along with (5.5) assists per contest.

The first round exit against New Orleans the Blazers lost game-one by two points 97-95 but the final three the Pelicans increased their scoring. In game four Portland allowed 131-point which sent them packing for the summer; it also could have been fools gold for New Orleans who’s scoring but are challenged on defense this year.

Stotts has put a premium on defense this season, and it’s paying dividends as the Trailblazers are allowing opponents (107.4) ppg which is sixth league-wide. Portland must continue to play tight defense the way the rest of the division is trending, Denver in particular.

Bovada.Lv, list the Portland Trailblazers at +450 to win the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Northwest Title.
