NBA Betting Los Angeles Clippers – Cleveland Cavaliers Preview & Prediction

8:00 PM ET, February 5, 2015
Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH

An East versus West battle is set for tonight in Cleveland as the 30-20 (23-27 ATS) Cavaliers play host to the 33-16 Clippers (20-29 ATS). The Cavaliers currently have the longest active winning streak in the NBA at 11 games. Bettors using sites for local bookies like Premier Per Head Online Bookie Software placing action on the UNDER/OVER have seen the Cavaliers 16-33-1 and the Clippers 23-25-1 so far this season.

Los Angeles is presently on a season high 8 game road trip, going 2-2 in their first 4 games. The last being a 102-100 loss in Brooklyn on Monday after a late breakdown and making only 8 of 25 shots from the free throw line.

In their last game, Cleveland defeated Philadelphia at home Monday 97-84, getting 24 points from Kyrie Irving. The win put the Cavaliers in a tie for 5th place in the Eastern Conference, but share the same record with the Bulls in the Central Division for first.

The Cavaliers and Clippers have already met once this season, on January 16th, with Cleveland coming out on top 126-121 as an 8.5-point road underdog. The score resulted as an OVER for those agents using bookie software. Lebron James was 3 assists shy of a triple-double after finishing with 32 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Irving led all scorers with 37. Blake Griffin lead the Clippers with 34 points and added 10 rebounds, while DeAndre Jordan scored 19 with 12 rebounds.

Agents using Pay Per Head see the Clippers No.2 in the power rankings with the Cavaliers coming in at No.6, as per ESPN. Both teams rank in the top 10 in scoring this season; the Clippers are No.3 with an average of 106.7 points and the Cavaliers at 101.7. However, in their last 10 games, both teams are scoring at the same pace, 108.7 and 108.3 respectively.

Defensive rankings are very close this season, as Cleveland is No.13 giving up 99.1 PPG while LA are giving up an average of 99.7, good for No.16. However, in the last 10 games, Cleveland holds the edge allowing 94.8 to LA’s 99.3.

The head to head summary between the two shows a disparity with Cleveland winning 7 of the last 10, going 7-3 ATS. For those bettors using sites for local bookies like Premier Per Head Online Bookie Software   preferring OVER/UNDER betting, the last 10 between these two resulted in a 5-5 record.

Recent trends show the Clippers 1-4 ATS in their last 5 with results ending UNDER in 5 of its last 6. As well, LA is 3-9 ATS in its last 12 on the road. The Cavaliers are 9-2 ATS in its last 11, going 6-1 ATS at home and seeing the UNDER in 5 of their last 5 games.

I expect the top players for both teams to show up tonight and keep this one close. Cleveland has been playing with a chip on their shoulder recently after going 2-10, with a 6 game losing streak prior to their current 11 game winning streak.

Prediction: Cleveland Cavaliers 108 – LA Clippers 105
