Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors 1/9/2022 Betting Odds
Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers are very much in the playoff picture as of the moment as they sit at 6th place in the NBA Eastern Conference standings with their record of 22-17. They have a chance to go up higher and chase the Philadelphia 76ers who are just half a game above them. The Cavs have been struggling for the past weeks since Ricky Rubio went out with an injury but they managed to win two of their last three games. The Portland Trail Blazers were their most recent opponents and won over them by 13 points, 114-101, thanks to Darius Garland leading the team with 26 points and six assists.

Golden State Warriors Betting
The Golden State Warriors have been slipping for the past few days dropping their last two road games against the Dallas Mavericks and the more recent was a humiliating defeat against the New Orleans Pelicans. They are still the second-best team in the NBA trailing the Phoenix Suns by only half a game with their record of 29-9. Stephen Curry is not playing this game due to a quad injury while Draymond Green is still questionable to play. This may mark the return of Klay Thompson to the roster but for now, the most reliable Warrior to lead the team would be Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole.
Players to Watch: S. Curry PG 35 GP 35 GS 34.7 MIN 26.8 PTS 0.6 OR 4.8 DR 5.3 REB 6.1 AST 1.4 STL 0.5 BLK 3.4 TO 2.1 PF 1.8 AST/TO 22.21 PER
