The Cleveland Cavaliers and Denver Nuggets meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Ball Arena.
The Cleveland Cavaliers need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 104 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 110.3 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Collin Sexton is averaging 23.6 points and 2.5 rebounds while Andre Drummond is averaging 18.5 points and 2.7 assists. Darius Garland is the third double-digit scorer and Jarrett Allen is grabbing 7.3 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 71.5 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 39.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game.
The Denver Nuggets need a win to snap a three-game losing streak. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 115.3 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 112.7 points on 47.8 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 27.5 points and 11.5 rebounds while Jamal Murray is averaging 18.6 points and 4.4 assists.

The Cavaliers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 8-2 in Cavaliers last 10 road games. The over is 22-8-2 in Nuggets last 32 home games. The Cavaliers are 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Denver.
The Cleveland Cavaliers once provided some betting value, but they're on the struggle bus right now, which includes losing their last five games by an average of 13.8 points while allowing 50.2 percent shooting from the field. The Cavs have also failed to cover each of their last seven games. The Denver Nuggets have had issues over the last week as well, but we know those issues won't last long, and they do win by an average of 7.5 points in the favorite role. Backing the Cavs isn't an option right now. I'll lay the chalk with the Nuggets.
