The Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz meet Monday in NBA action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.
The Cleveland Cavaliers need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 103.5 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 111 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Collin Sexton is averaging 24 points and 2.8 rebounds while Darius Garland is averaging 16.6 points and 5.7 assists. Jarrett Allen is the third double-digit scorer and Cedi Osman is grabbing 3.5 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 38.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz look to build on their five-game winning streak. The Utah Jazz are averaging 117 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 108.2 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 25.9 points and 5.5 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17.4 points and 2.2 assists. Mike Conley is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 13.3 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 39.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78.5 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.2 rebounds per game.
The Cavaliers are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 road games and 9-19 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Jazz are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games and 26-11 ATS in their last 37 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Cavaliers last 4 overall. The over is 7-1 in Jazz last 8 Monday games. The Cavaliers are 0-4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Utah and 4-15-3 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are not a team you should be running to the window to back, as they're not only losing games, but they're a rough 19-27 against the spread despite being underdogs nightly. The Utah Jazz have been automatic backs for much of the season and are 29-16 against the spread while winning their last five games by an average of 15.4 points. Everything points to the Jazz winning comfortably. However, this is a lot of points to leave on the table regardless of what you think of both teams. It's Cavs and the boatload of points or pass for me.
