Spurs and Cavs Both Struggling to Find Identity

Two top NBA powers struggling to find wins lately clash on Tuesday night with the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road against the San Antonio Spurs. The game will have an 8 p.m. tip on TNT from the AT&T Center.

BetAnySports opened the Spurs as 3.5-point home favorites. The total line opened at 210 points. The line moved to Cleveland -2-points and the total has risen to 212.

Spurs Catch Cavs In a Bad Rut

The Cavaliers have now lost 10 of their last 13 games straight-up. They have been even worse against the spread at 2-16 over their last 18 contests. This is all part of a SU 27-18 record while going a costly 12-32-1 ATS.

Cleveland has failed to cover in 14 of its first 23 road games this season. The total has gone OVER in three of their last four road games on BetAnySports’ closing line.

Isaiah Thomas is back in the lineup for Cleveland. He led the way in scoring with 24 points against Oklahoma City on Saturday. His team was still on the wrong end of a 148-124 loss. They were a slight 2.5-point home favorite.

LeBron James added 18 points and seven assists. The Cavaliers could not bounce back from a 19-point deficit at the end of the first quarter.

Spurs have Been Struggling as Well

San Antonio has been sliding down the standings in the Western Conference. A 2-4 SU slide in its last six games has been detrimental. The Spurs have gone 2-3-1 ATS during this same span. The total stayed UNDER BetAnySports’ closing spread in all six games.

San Antonio is still one of the best home teams in the league at 19-3 SU. They have covered in 14 of the 22 games. The total has stayed UNDER in four of its last five home games.

The changing of the guard in San Antonio continues to take shape. Veteran guard Tony Parker is playing off the bench with fellow veteran Manu Ginobili. Manu remains out of the lineup with a thigh bruise. In Sunday’s 94-86 loss to Indiana as six-point home favorites, Parker scored 12 points while going 5-for-10 from the floor.

The Spurs are ranked 28th in the league in scoring with 100.6 points per game. They remain at the top of the list in points allowed at 97.5 a game.

Both teams are trying to regain their winning form at the midway point of the season. When it comes to this matchup, I would have to lean towards San Antonio ATS coming off a bad loss on its home court.
