One extended winning streak came to an end earlier this week when Atlanta lost to New Orleans after reeling-off 19 straight wins and another one will be on the line this Thursday night when Cleveland plays host to the Los Angeles Clippers in the opener of a NBA betting double-header on TNT.

The Clippers come into this matchup with a straight-up 7-2 record in their last nine games, but they fell to Brooklyn their last time out 102-100 as 8.5-point road favorites. They have been rough on the wallet since mid-January with a costly 4-8 record against the spread and the total has stayed UNDER VietBet’s closing betting odds in six of their last eight games. Los Angeles is 13-9 SU in 22 previous road games this season while going 9-13 ATS.

The Cavaliers extended their current SU winning streak to 11 games with this past Monday’s 97-84 victory against Philadelphia as heavy 17-point favorite at home. It was just the second time during this run that they failed to cover ATS. The total stayed UNDER VietBet’s closing 195.5-point line and it has now stayed UNDER in Cleveland’s last six contests. The Cavs are now 18-9 SU at home this season with a 13-14 record ATS.

Thursday’s TNT nightcap sends Phoenix on the road to face the Portland Trail Blazers in a 10:30 p.m. (ET) tip. The Suns are coming off back-to-back losses to Golden State and Memphis to fall to 2-4 SU in their last six games. While they did cover as 2.5-point home underdogs in a tight two-point loss to the Grizzlies this past Monday, they are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven sports betting outings. The total has stayed UNDER in Phoenix’s last five games.

The Trail Blazers have been one of the top teams in the Western Conference all year long, but they have hit a mid-season swoon with just three SU victories in their last 11 games. Portland snapped a three-game skid this past Tuesday in a 103-102 squeaker against Utah, but it could not cover as an 8.5-point favorite at home. It is now just 2-9 ATS during its current slide. Overall, the Trail Blazers are still a solid 21-5 SU at home this season with a 13-12-1 mark ATS in the 26 games.
