The Cavaliers are 9-24 ATS in their last 33 road games and 18-40-1 ATS in their last 59 games overall. The Lakers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The under is 8-3-1 in Cavaliers last 12 road games. The over is 5-1 in Lakers last 6 overall. The Cavaliers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.

With or without LeBron, the Los Angeles Lakers haven't looked good this season and aren't a team I'm running to the window to lay decent sized chalk with. The Cleveland Cavaliers have also been one of the biggest surprises of this young season, which includes three straight wins and upset blowouts over the Clippers and Nuggets. It's hard to see this feisty Cavs team have success and turn down this many free points. Give me the Cavs.
