The Cavaliers are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games and 22-6 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Wizards are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Cavaliers last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Wizards last 5 overall.

The Cleveland Cavaliers got a major blow with the ACL injury to Ricky Rubio, so a step back for the Cavs wouldn't be shocking, but this is a young team that has found ways to win regardless of their circumstances. The Cavs are winning their last five games by an average of 19 points, and they win on the road by an average of 5.1 points. The Washington Wizards are still missing key players, and they weren't all that good at full strength anyway. Until we see a regress, I'm still riding with the Cavs in the underdog role.
