The Line: Cleveland Cavaliers -8.5 -- Over/Under: 194.5 See the Latest Odds
The Milwaukee Bucks head to Cleveland on Friday to face off against Kyrie Irving and the Cavs.
The Cleveland Cavs are currently 15-27 this season, and for a team that normally plays pretty well at home, this season the Cavs are only 10-10 on their home court. Cleveland is one of the better teams in the league on the boards, and has one of the better scorers in the league in Irving, but still this Cavs team struggled putting up points consistently. The Cavs have dropped two out of their last three games heading into Friday’s meeting with the Bucks with their last two losses coming at home against the Mavs and the Bulls.

The Milwaukee Bucks…are not good at basketball. Milwaukee has totaled just eight wins on the year, with four of them coming on the road, giving the Bucks a road record this season of 4-18. Milwaukee has one of the worst ranked offenses in the league, scoring just over 91 points per game with Brandon Knight leading the way with 15.9 per outing. The Bucks did get a win in their last outing, defeating the Pistons in Milwaukee on Wednesday 104-101, breaking a nine game losing streak.
The Milwaukee Bucks are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games on the road, and the Bucks are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games following an outright win. . The Bucks are also just 3-7 against the spread in their last ten games overall.
The Cavs are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against losing teams, and the Cavs are 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 games on their home floor. Cleveland is also 7-3 against the spread in their last ten games following an outright loss.
Not loving this game and I will be staying away from this one, but if you want to make a play here, my suggestion would be on the under. I just don’t see either offense doing much as the Bucks do have a decent defense, and should be able to keep the Cavs attack in check. You may have to sweat this one out a bit, but the under looks like the side here if you want on this one.
