The two worse teams of the Eastern Conference are clashing today, when the second-worse Cleveland Cavaliers (11-45), looking to end their current losing streak, are hosting the team with the worse record in the whole NBA, the New York Knicks (10-45), who have been on a free fall and have won only once in their last twenty-five games.

Date/Time: 02-11-2019, 19:00 EDT

Spread: Cleveland Cavaliers -1.5

Total: +211

Cleveland Cavaliers have a 11-45 record (24-31-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the second to last place of the East. They have four consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Pacers with a 90-105 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Jordan Clarkson with 16.8 ppg and 3.3 boards off the bench. He is followed by Kevin Love with 16 ppg and 11 boards per game.

New York Knicks have a 10-45 record (23-31-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the whole league. They have lost 24 of their last 25 matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Raptors with a 99-104 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Dennis Smith Jr with 19.2 ppg, adding 3.5 boards and a team high 6.5 dimes per game. He is followed by Emmanuel Mudiay with 14.7 ppg and 3.9 dimes per game but he is out with an injury.

In their previous meeting earlier this season the Cavaliers won at home with a 113-106 score. Cavaliers have a 6-21 home record, while the Knicks are 6-22 on the road. Knicks are better offensively, scoring 105.2 ppg to Cavs’ 102.2, while Cavaliers are better defensively, allowing 113.1 ppg to Knicks’ 114.3. Cavaliers have better percentages both in field goals (44.1% to 43%) and in 3-pointers (35.3% to 33.7%). They are also better in turnovers committed (12.7 to 13.2) and in dimes made (20.4 to 19.7), while Knicks are better in boards grabbed (44.2 to 42.3). Knicks have been absolutely terrible for the most part of the season and Vegas odds give the Cavaliers a -1.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home victory.
