NBA Basketball Sports Odds & Expert Picks on Portland Trail Blazers vs Cleveland Cavaliers

Time: 7:00 PM ET
Date: Tuesday, January 2, 2018
Where: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, Ohio
Watch on: NBCS Northwest, FS Ohio
Odds: Cavaliers -8½
Total O/U: 211½

The reeling Cleveland Cavaliers return home for just one game and will look to snap a three-game losing streak as they get ready to lock horns with the Portland Trail Blazers in a non-conference showdown with the contest set to be broadcasted on the NBCS Northwest Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. ET and live from Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

This will be the first of two meetings between the two rivals this season. The two clubs split their two-game series last year with each winner prevailing on home soil. The Cavaliers have won the last three contests played at Quicken Loans Arena. They will play just one game in Cleveland before they begin another 5-game road trip.

The Cavaliers have lost four of their last five games and haven’t covered the numbers in each of the tilts. The good news for the Cavaliers is that they have not lost a home game since November 5 which amounts to 12 straight wins. They enter this affair as a 8½-point favorite, according to BetOnline Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 211½ points.
