Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The Cleveland Cavaliers will kick off the second half of their campaign with a new coach. This week, Cleveland announced the resignation of John Beilein from head coaching duties. J.B Bickerstaff will take over as the coach of the team that is now virtually out of playoff contention, yet still trying to search for answers concerning their young core and their veterans on bloated contracts.

Players to Watch: Collin Sexton (19.8 PPG, 3.2 RPG and 2.7 APG)

Kevin Love (17.7 PPG, 9.8 RPG, and 3.0 APG)

Andre Drummond (16.5 PPG, 14.5 RPG and 2.0 APG)

Washington Wizards Betting

Despite missing their All-Star point guard John Wall for the entire 2019-20 NBA season, the Washington Wizards are surprisingly in the thick of the playoff race in a top-heavy Eastern Conference. Bradley Beal’s terrific performance has put the Wiz in this spot. The All-Star shooting guard is leading his team in points, assists, and minutes per game. Nine other Wizards are also scoring in double figures for this high-powered offense.

Players to Watch: Bradley Beal (29.1 PPG, 4.4 RPG and 6.2 APG)

Davis Bertans (15.0 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 1.8 APG)

Rui Hachimura (13.9 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 1.5 APG)

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Washington Wizards Betting Picks

The Cavaliers and the Wizards split their first two games, making it a bit tough for Online Bookmakers to set a favorable NBA betting line. Still, the Cavaliers’ ongoing struggle, on and off-court, should be a sign that everything isn’t going for this franchise this season. The Wizards, on the other hand, are a model of perseverance despite another injury stricken-year.

Moneyline: Pick the Wizards to win the game. Washington lost to Cleveland, 113-100, in their first game of the season but bounced back with a 124-112 win in their second head-to-head game. A healthy Bradley Beal is enough reason why bettors should pick this team over a skidding Cavs team.

ATS: Bet on the Wizards to cover the 4.5-point spread. Washington had been solid against the spread in their last 10 games with a 6-4 slate.

TOTALs: Back the OVER. I feel the Wizards’ high-octane offense will control the tempo of the game. The Cavs are 27th in the league in points per game, while the Wizards are the 6th best offensive team in the league.

Score Prediction: 123 – 107 Wizards
