The Sacramento Kings head to Cleveland on Tuesday to face off against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are having a horrible season, but thanks to the Bucks, the Cavs aren’t in the basement of their division right now. The Cavs are currently 18-33 on the year, and on their home court, where traditionally the Cavs play pretty well, Cleveland is just 12-13 this season. The Cavs have a very solid scorer in Kyrie Irving, who is putting up better than 21 points per game this season, but the Cavs just haven’t been able to put the right pieces in place around him. Cleveland did get a win in their last outing, defeating the Grizzlies 91-83 in overtime on Sunday in Cleveland.

The Sacramento Kings are just 17-34 this season, with a horrible road record of 6-18 currently. The Kings do have a solid offense, putting up an average of 101.2 points per game, but the defense is horrible, ranking near the bottom of the league with 103.5 points per game allowed on average. The Kings have dropped back to back games heading into this meeting with the Cavs. The last outing for the Kings resulted in a 93-84 loss to the Wizards in Washington on Sunday night.
The Kings are 0-3-1 against the spread in their last four games against another team with a losing record. The Kings however are a positive 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games after an ATS loss.
The Cavs are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games following a win, and the Cavs are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games at home against a team with a losing record on the road.
I’m going with the under here. Neither one of these teams have shown me any kind of motivation this season, and I think we will see a sloppy game here. The Under also has some trends behind it as the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between the Cavs and the Kings and the under is 9-1 in the last ten home games for Cleveland.
