The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to the AT&T Center to battle the San Antonio Spurs tonight.
The Cavaliers will be looking to build on their current eight-game win streak after sneaking past the Mavericks by 110-107 in overtime on Tuesday. Kyrie Irving had 22 points and nine assists while Kevin Love added 15, but it was LeBron James who led the way with 27 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for the Cavs. It was a strong win for Cleveland who have now won 14 of their last 16 games to improve to 27-9 overall and 12-8 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Spurs 16 of their last 17 games and their last nine straight after taking down the Pistons by 109-99 on Tuesday. Tony Parker turned back the clock with a game-high 31 points while LaMarcus Aldridge added 22 points as the Spurs took down the in-form Pistons in a solid win. San Antonio is now second in the league rankings with a 34-6 season record and 12-6 record on the road.
In ATS trends, the Cavs are 5-0 ATS in their last five against teams above .600 and 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven road games, while the Spurs are 4-0 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record and 25-9 ATS in their last 34 home games.
Head to head, the Cavs are 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings and the over is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings.
I can see this game being a high scoring affair so a play on the total to go over is a valid pick. However, if you prefer picking a side, I'd go for the Spurs who are still a perfect 22-0 at home.
