In tonight’s East vs West battle, the high-flying Cleveland Cavaliers take on the struggling San Antonio Spurs at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on Monday (February 13). Let’s look ahead at what the odds and previews say.
The two sides are on completely opposite spectrums as the Cavs have been one of the most in-form sides in the East, while the San Antonio side have been one of the biggest strugglers in the NBA this campaign.
Cleveland are in tremendous form, having won all of their last six. On the back of this excellent run of form, they have improved to a 37-22 record and are now up to the fourth seed. The Spurs, on the other hand, have now lost 12 in a row and are looking to settle the ship quite quickly. Both sides need a win tonight, but for completely different reasons.
Donovan Mitchell will once again be expected to be the difference maker, having led the scoring for the Cavs this season.

San Antonio vs. Cleveland Betting Prediction
Surely the Spurs couldn’t pull off a miraculous upset, could they? The stats don’t really reflect that. The Cavs have been one of the very best teams in the NBA this season and are on a very strong triumphant run. San Antonio also come into this game with an extremely rotated and injury-riddled side and shouldn’t really compare with the quality of Cleveland.
