Cleveland Cavaliers' Darius Garland drives to the hoop on Warriors Juan Toscano-Anderson

The Cleveland Cavaliers (8-3) have been falling off a little recently after playing some excellent basketball to start the season, as they’ve dropped two straight games.

The Golden State Warriors (4-7) have not looked good to start the season at all, but they finally stopped the bleeding Monday night, which was the last time they played.

Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Preview

The Cavs dropped their last couple of games to the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Clippers, as they are out West on a road trip.

Donovan Mitchell continued to build on his early season MVP case, as he dropped 38 and 30 points in those games, respectively.

Caris LeVert also went off for 21 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists. Jarrett Allen put in 20 points, and Evan Mobley chipped in with 16 points.

The Cavs just had trouble defending their opponents, as everybody in the starting lineup on the opposing team finished with double figures.

It’s been a struggle for Darius Garland in his return from injury, but as he gets up to speed, the Cavs should become even deadlier as the season progresses, as Garland will provide a steady scoring and playmaking presence. The pieces are all there for Cleveland to be one of the scariest teams the league has to offer. It’s just about getting their chemistry to build up. 

Golden State Warriors Betting Preview

Stephen Curry is putting in work this season, as he’s averaging 32.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game. However, the success of the Warriors hasn’t followed despite Curry putting up MVP-type numbers, as they are well below .500 after dropping five straight games.

Andrew Wiggins hasn’t taken the leap in his game many were expecting, as his averages are hovering around the same as they were last season.

Jordan Poole also hasn’t been playing great basketball, as he is currently one of the most inefficient players in basketball.

It’s been a struggle for Klay Thompson, as he has not looked like his usual self as a scorer or defender.

Draymond Green is also looking a step slow compared to what we’ve been used to, as age is clearly factoring into his ability to push the ball in transition and be a versatile defender.

With the depth the Warriors possess, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them make a move to add another superstar. Perhaps if Kevin Durant became available, they’d look into him again? We’ll see.


The odds favor the Warriors in this one with a -2.5 spread. Given that the Warriors are home, well-rested, and can go off at any moment, it’s easy to see why they’re favored.

However, the Cavs are just the more complete team at this time, so it would be prudent to go with them to win this game.
