2 units on Houston -3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: LOSS
It's unusual for a team as bad as Cleveland to be in a letdown situation, but the Cavaliers will still be riding high after snapping a 10-game losing streak last night with a 112-111 victory against Atlanta. Amazingly, it was the first time the Cavs covered the spread since Jan. 27, a span of 13 games. On a losing streak of its own, Houston is now desperate for a win, and this will be the first meeting between these teams since December, 2019. Cleveland is 1-6 ATS its last seven home games and 1-4 its last five games playing on no rest. Houston has a good opportunty to take advantage of this scheduling situation as the Cavaliers appear to be incapable of putting together two good performances in a row. Take the Rockets as my Max Play.
