Chesapeake Energy Arena will play host to a Sunday night betting matchup in the NBA, as the Cleveland Cavaliers meet up with Oklahoma City at 7:00 PM EST.
Highly reputable Sportsbook Bookmaker.eu has listed the home team Thunder as heavy -10 1/2 favorites, while posting the over/under total at 202 points.
The Cavaliers have stumbled out the gate to the tune of a 2-4 won/loss record, but own a 3-1 against the spread record playing on the road this season. However, Cleveland has lost their last two games straight up.
The good news for bettors siding with the Cavaliers in the contest is their 4-0 ATS record following a straight up loss. However, Cleveland is just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games played on a Sunday and 1-7 against the spread in their last 8 games played on the road versus a team with a winning record.
Meanwhile, after six games this season, the Thunder are 4-2 overall and 2-2 against the spread in four games played at home. Additionally, they are currently riding a three-game winning streak.
The Thunder are 7-3 ATS in their last ten games played at home and 8-2 in their last ten following a game in which they scored more than 100 points. But, they have only covered 2 of their last 8 games played against teams in the Eastern Conference.
In head to head action, the road team has covered four of the last five meetings.
Thunder -10 1/2
