4* NBA BLOCKBUSTER BLOWOUT
Utah vs. Cleveland,
03/05/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 109 - 100
Point Spread: +1½/-110 Cleveland
The Cavaliers are showing some great value as a home underdog against the Jazz on Monday. Cleveland will be extremely motivated to put an end to their five-game losing streak, and the Jazz figure to be just the opponent to make that happen. Utah put together a couple of big wins at home over Houston and Miami at the end of last week, but went out and lost at Dallas on Saturday.
Utah is one of the worst road teams in the NBA and there is no reason they should be favored to win this game. The Jazz are 3-13 on the road this season and are only 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite. The Cavaliers are just 8-11 at home this season, but that doesn't hurt us here. Utah is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
Backing Cleveland as a home underdog has been profitable in the past. The Cavaliers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a home underdog, including a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as a home underdog of 0.5-4.5. BET THE CAVALIERS!
