Cleve­land over WASH­ING­TON by 8

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2017-18 Ncaa & Nba Basketball -

While we’re cer­tain the NBA will tout tonight’s meet­ing as a ‘show­down of divi­sion lead­ers’, the fact is that Wash­ing­ton has lost five of its pre­vi­ous seven games and barely re­mains over .500. Com­pare that to the smokin’ hot Cava­liers, whose stum­bling 6-10 SU and 5-10-1 ATS start to the sea­son is now in the rear view mir­ror fol­low­ing their re­cent 13-game win skein (fi­nally lost at In­di­ana 9 days ago). And while Chick-Fil-A restau­rants choose to keep their doors closed on Sun­days, King James and com­pany don’t mind rolling up their sleeves and go­ing to work on the Sab­bath: Cleve­land has won 13 straight games on Sun­day, in­clud­ing 7 in a row on the high­way! Wash­ing­ton cer­tainly hasn’t chal­lenged the Cavs in re­cent se­ries get-to­geth­ers, post­ing a paltry 3-9 ATS record at Cap­i­tal One Arena and dump­ing four of the last five over­all meet­ings both SU and ATS. Hey, the Wiz­ards have been more pre­tenders than con­tenders and un­til they prove they can run with the big boys, we’ll keep them on our fade list. No magical out­come for Wash­ing­ton fans here.
