Today we get many games, many of them are really interesting, but I will focus on one that promises to be particularly interesting and even one.
Cleveland Cavaliers – Washington Wizards
For some strange reason, Wizards having a hard time at home. But on the road, they hold 70% success rate ATS wise, with 19 – 8 record and as I said yesterday already, take this stretch of games with great seriousness.
Teams met three times this season and the underdog won SU in all three games and together with last season’s games, the underdog won ATS and SU in all the last 5 games between the two teams (though 4 out of 5 times it was Cleveland).
Trade deadline passed and both teams added decent additions to the roster. Andre Miller, the veteran PG, joined the Wizards, giving them great depth and he was just the right player that Wizards needed.
Cleveland added Hawes, mostly due to Varejao’s injury, otherwise, it’s hard to understand that addition.
The problem is Deng – star player that arrived as the savior only a month a go from Chicago, said that he is shocked by the low level of professionalism in Cleveland and was so disappointed, that Cleveland tried to move him already, for Ariza, before trade deadline passed.
All in all, I think that match ups and rosters wise, this is 50 – 50 game, but trends and H2H give Wizards the edge here in my eyes.
Wizards +1, 1.94 odds – 6 units play – Pinnacle
