NBA Betting Total:
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been mighty disappointing this year and their schedule gets no easier here, as they take on a Washington Wizards team who will be desperate to pick up this win on home court.
The Cleveland Cavaliers finally snapped their 11 game losing streak last time out, but it did come against a depleted Boston Celtics team who really looked like they had the life sucked out of them following the injury to their All-Star Jaylen Brown.
Nonetheless the Cleveland Cavs got the job done by 8 points and it was mainly because of the play of Kevin Love who broke out and had a big game putting up 30 points and dominated the boards pulling down 14 rebounds.
The concerning thing about the Cleveland Cavs in this game is the play of their bench, as they have been pretty awful and were no better in that game against the Celtics, as the starters needed to do the vast majority of the work in that game and they will likely have to do the same here against the Wizards.
The Cavs poor play this year is not all their fault though, as they have a laundry list of injuries, so this could be a better team then a lot of people think going into a new season when they are fully healthy.
It has been an incredible run for the Washington Wizards over the last couple months and it looks like they may fall just short of the play-in games after two tough fought losses against the Atlanta Hawks.
They were extremely competitive in those last two games against the Hawks and easily could have won those games, and at this point it is interesting to think about where the Wizards will be next year if they can carry over some of this momentum and maybe add a piece or two.
The main thing they will need to work on in the offseason is their defense which currently ranks in 30th place and if you have been watching the Wizards lately you will know just how crazy their games can get scoring-wise.
This is an interesting stylistic matchup for the Wizards though, as this team typically likes to push the pace, but the Cavs will almost certainly look to slow this one down as much as possible, so it will be interesting to see what kind of game we get here pace-wise.
Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
This total is a bit too high based on Washington’s recent games, but they were playing other teams who really wanted to have a track meet with them and the Cavaliers are not that team, so I think we see this pace slowed significantly and subsequently this total staying under.
One of the key pieces for this Wizards offense will be out for this one as well with Bradley Beal being held out due to a hamstring injury so that does not really help things here, as he has been an absolute sharp-shooter this year putting up well over 30 points per game here in 2021.
