NBA Free Betting Pick: Cleveland at Sacramento

Cleveland +9 at Sacramento O/U 214.5 
Recommendation: Cleveland

There aren’t many bettors who look forward to wagering on the Cleveland Cavaliers these days – only the Wizards have been worse against the spread this year. And the Cavs have been complete no-shows in each of their last four games, losing all four by double-digit margins.

Head coach Byron Scott is not amused: “I’m really starting to question what type of heart we have as a basketball team. I care about competing. I care about coming out every single night, going against an opponent that has a different color jersey on that’s trying to kick your butt - and not to respond to that is shocking and scary to me.”

Scott has called out the Cavs more than once this year, and we’ve seen Cleveland come through with some solid efforts following those outbursts. But more than anything, this bet is about fading the Sacramento Kings in this price range. The Kings have been money-losers at home all year. They are a 30% ATS proposition when laying points. And, as a favorite of five points or more, Sacramento is 0-for the entire season.

We’re talking about a team with a losing SU record as a favorite – not just ATS! This is not a team to lay nine points with, even against the NBA’s worst. The first meeting between these two teams was decided by three points, and there’s no reason to think that tonight’s rematch will be any less competitive, with or without Baron Davis in the lineup.
