Phoenix Suns vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
Take Suns +12½
By Ben Burns
Off a blowout loss against the Warriors a few days ago, many are likely going to back the Cavs here. The logic being that the Cavs will be in an angry mood and looking to take it out on somebody. However, that logic hasn’t exactly held water in recent seasons. In fact, the Cavs are only 12-21-1 ATS the last few seasons, when off a double-digit loss. In fact, 15 of those times, they lost outright in their next game. With the Spurs on deck, it figures to be easy to look past the Suns.
Phoenix has covered five of its last six games though and is 10-3 ATS (8-5 SU!) against teams from the East. The Suns gave the Cavs all they could handle at Phoneix, less than two weeks ago. Cleveland ended up winning by only four. Don’t be surprised if this one also proves closer than most will be expecting.
