The Cleveland Cavaliers are a tough team to bet against right now, as they’re piling up the wins and covers, and they’re getting better and better offensively. With that said, this is a weird early start that usually favors the home teams, and the Los Angeles Lakers have played better ball their last few contests since making lineup adjustments. The Lakers can’t afford games to keep slipping away if this season is going to go anywhere. I’ll grab the free bucket if forced to pick.
