Spurs vs Cavaliers Prediction | NBA Picks

Additionally, so far during this 2021-22 NBA regular season, San Antonio is 11-8 as a favorite, 9-26 as an underdog and 14-11 ATS away, while Cleveland is 20-6 as a favorite, 13-15 as an underdog and 17-9 ATS at home. The Spurs defeated the Rockets at home, ending their three-game skid. But, it is evident that this particular Western Conference team is inconsistent from game to game. Bettors will likely pick against an unpredictable team. Plus, the Cavs are on a six-game home winning streak.

Moreover, heading into Wednesday night’s contest, Cleveland is a seven-point favorite. For one notable observation, the Cavs are the superior team at home than the Spurs are on the road. In the minds of undecided risk-takers, the Cavaliers are in better shape. So, think about taking the Cavs to win, they will cover the spread and the total will go over 219.
