LA Lakers vs Cleveland Cavs by Marlo
Lakers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4, which is absolutely no surprise. Equally, unsurprising is the fact that Cavs are favourites here.
Lakers will be shorthanded as Byrant, Nash, Farmar and Blake are out for sure. However, even more worrying is the fact that doubts are Gasol and Young, two key players for them despite their horrid run.
Cavs put in a shocker last time out and fell by over 20 pts, which perhaps has played a hand in the odds setting for this game. I see Cavs winning here as they have a better unit at the moment. Deng has been added to the enhance the defence. They have Varejao, Thompson, Miles, Waiters and last but definitely not least, Irving who can really trouble this Lakers team which has a shocking defensive game.
Lakers were down by more than 40 last time out against the Clippers and fell in the end for only 39 pts loss.
Cavs are 3-16 on the road, a terrible stat. However, I see that becoming 4-16 tonight.
Line opened at -2 for Cavs but support has forced it to drift. However, -3 is still good enough for me on the alternative spread.
Good luck if you're on.
