The Suns are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games. The Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Pacific and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Cleveland and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
The Suns are a team that's going to blow things up and have already given up on the season. However, I don't trust the Cavaliers with any big spreads. Cleveland isn't at that stage yet. So, I'm going to side with the ove to avoid both of these teams. The over is 4-1 in the Cavs last five home games.
