NBA Free Vegas Plays-Tuesday Jan. 30

Here are two personal plays that I recommend for tonight’s NBA Action.

Cleveland Cavaliers (29-19) at Detroit Pistons (22-26)

Tuesday, January 30, 2018  8:00 PM ET
Line: Cleveland Cavaliers -2 point favorites, Over/Under 218.5 points

The Cleveland Cavaliers numbers against the spread have not been pretty on the road.  The Cavs will head into this game with a dismal 1-11 record against the spread in their last 12 road games.

At -2, this is pretty close to a pick’em.  Despite the Cavs recent bad stretch, the Cavs have now won two straight games against the spread, including a 121-104 home win against the Pistons two nights ago.
A lot has changed in less than 24 hours since that game. The Pistons have now acquired Blake Griffin in a trade that sent their two leading scorers Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley to the Clippers.

The Pistons have lost eight straight games overall and have a 1-7 record against the spread during the current losing streak. This will be the third match-up between these teams this season with Cleveland winning 116-88 at Detroit on Nov. 20, and 121-104 in Cleveland this past Sunday, Jan. 28.

With the recent trade, I expect the Pistons to sell more tickers with Blake Griffin, but necessarily become a better team. As for just tonight, the Cleveland Cavaliers are the better team. Then once you add in the extra distractions and team chemistry issues, I definitely don’t expect the Pistons to beat a Cavs team with a lot to prove.

Denver Nuggets (26-24) at San Antonio Spurs (33-19)

Tuesday, January 30, 2018  8:30 PM ET

The Spurs will be hosting the Nuggets for the second time this season. On January 13th the Spurs defeated the Nuggets 112-80 in San Antonio.
