Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in Los Angeles for two consecutive nights and this is going to be tiring for them battling against two of the top teams in the NBA right now. Kevin Love is going to be the leader of this team but at his age, managing back-to-back games will be tough. Collin Sexton is on his second year and he should have the legs to manage the grind of a back-to-back. Aside from him, Darius Garland should be another guard for the Clippers to watch out for. Not much can be expected from the bench of the Cavs but expect them to be tired in this game and trying to hang on.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting

The Los Angeles Clippers have been a tale of two teams. One is the team that manhandled the Lakers and looked like they can win the championship. The other one is the team that the Lakers are not facing. Some blame that they have not been consistent and they lost the underdog mentality that has been their mantra for the past seasons under Doc Rivers. With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, they own two of the top 10 players in the league and their record right now doesn’t speak well on the type of potential that they can put out. Expect Pat Beverly and Lou Williams to lock-in on Collin Sexton and Darius Garland for this game while Kawhi Leonard will be at his usual self of being a two-way threat.

Players to Watch: K. Leonard SF 30 GP 30 GS 32.2 MIN 25.8 PTS 1.1 OR 6.4 DR 7.5 REB 5.1 AST 1.9 STL 0.5 BLK 3.4 TO 2 PF 1.5 AST/TO 24.69 PER
