Cavaliers vs Rockets Betting Preview

The Cavaliers are hot. They’ve won four straight and have gone 8-2 in their last 10. They have the second-best shooting defense in the league and are the best team to place spread bets on. In fact they’re so good that their ROI on spread bets is nearly double that of the second-ranked Golden State Warriors.

Houston aren’t too bad either. They’ve turned their season around since rookie Jalen Green got injured. Houston have managed impressive wins over Chicago, Charlotte and Brooklyn in their last 10 games.

The Rockets however should struggle against the Cavaliers’ height and defense. Expect them to get out-rebounded by the Cleveland’s tall lineup. They should also experience a dip in their shooting. The Cavaliers are limiting opponents to 33% from deep this season and the Rockets already aren’t great shooters.
