7* NBA ATS Play
Cleveland vs. LA Lakers,
01/13/2013 21:30 EDT,
Score: 93 - 113
Point Spread: +8/-110 Cleveland
Who are the Los Angeles Lakers to be laying eight points to anyone right now? The Lakers weren’t very good at full strength, and now they are playing without Howard and Gasol.
Los Angeles has terrible team chemistry and they can’t stop anyone on the defensive end.
Clearly, the Cavaliers are far from a good NBA team. Still, Cleveland has proven that they do play hard on a nightly basis.
Cleveland actually beat the Lakers 100-94 as a 6.5 point underdog a couple weeks ago at home. The Cavs have played Brooklyn and Denver to close games in the past week or two.
Kobe Bryant is having a good season, but no one else for the Lakers is producing the way they should be.
Kyrie Irving is a super star in the making in Cleveland, and it won’t surprise me a bit if he has a huge game against the Lakers defense.
The Cavs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. Cleveland is also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings with the Lakers.
The Lakers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. Take Cleveland.
