4* NBA BOOKIE BEATDOWN
Cleveland vs. Charlotte,
01/16/2012 14:00 EDT,
Score: 102 - 94
Point Spread: -2/-102 Charlotte
The Bobcats snapped a six-game losing streak with a 112-100 win over the Warriors. What a lot of people don't realize is Kemba Walker made his first career start in that game, and the team just seemed to respond to him. I look for the Bobcats to start playing much better basketball with Walker in the starting lineup, and it starts tonight against the Cavaliers.
Charlotte will be playing with a bit of revenge in this game as well. The Cavaliers beat the Bobcats 115-101 back on January 1.
Cleveland is just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog of 0.5-4.5, while Charlotte is a respectable 17-6 ATS in home games off a home win over the last 3 seasons. BET THE BOBCATS -2!
