15* NBA Wednesday Undervalued Underdog on Cleveland Cavaliers +7.5
Cleveland vs. Atlanta,
03/21/2012 19:30 EDT,
Score: 102 - 103
Point Spread: +7½/-105 Cleveland
The Cleveland Cavaliers should not be this big of an underdog to the Atlanta Hawks tonight in a game I believe they can win outright. Cleveland will be the more motivated team due to events leading up to this game. Atlanta is in a huge letdown spot tonight.
Atlanta has won six straight over Cleveland, including a 103-87 victory on March 18th just three nights ago. With a rematch occurring in such a short amount of time, I have no doubt that the Cavaliers are going to be hungry for payback. Look for Atlanta to be 'disinterested' when they take the floor after winning six in a row over Cleveland.
This play falls into a system that is 22-6 (78.6%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet on any team (CLEVELAND) - revenging a loss vs opponent of 10 points or more against opponent off an embarrassing home loss scoring less than 80 points.
The Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog. The Hawks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite of 5.0-10.5. Atlanta is 4-17 ATS in home games after playing a game as a home favorite over the last 2 seasons. The road team is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings. Roll with the Cavaliers Wednesday.
