Cleveland Cavaliers Betting History

The Cavaliers do not have an overall strong team, but they do have a few key players that stand out and make it possible for the team to win games. Their 2013/14 record was the best since LeBron James left (wins were in the 30s rather than 10s or 20s) and their ability to beat the spread was fairly even at 48.78%. They weren't the best team to bet on, but they weren't the worst either. Not to mention for the Cav's it was a pretty good season. Deciding between Over/Under betting was hit or miss with the two split down the middle.

2014/2015 Cleveland Cavaliers Schedule

The Cleveland Cavaliers begin their 2014/2015 season at home on Thursday October 30. Although their longest road trip of the season is only five games, the Cavaliers will have some tough road stretches this season. Cleveland will play 21 sets of back-to-backs this year - including seven home-away sets, seven away-home sets and seven away-away sets. The return of LeBron James to the Cavs is sure to see a rise in ticket sales, especially the opening game.

Cleveland Cavaliers History

The Cleveland Cavaliers entered the NBA in 1970 as an expansion franchise. The Cavaliers did not have much success in their early seasons but had a decent run at the end of the 1970s and won the Central Division in 1976. The franchise was fairly consistent during the late 1980s and early 1990s but could never mount a deep playoffs charge. Cleveland struggled in the late 1990s and early 2000s and were unable to take advantage of a number of early draft picks. The franchise's fortunes turned around when they won the number 1 draft pick in 2003 and picked up Lebron James. With James leading the roster, the Cavaliers became regular playoff qualifiers and won the 2007 Eastern Conference Championship. However, James was never able to win an elusive NBA Championship and left the side in controversial circumstances before the start of the 2010 schedule. The Cavaliers have struggled without James and are still rebuilding their roster.

Cleveland Cavaliers Star Player: Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving was selected with the number 1 draft pick in the 2011 NBA draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers after playing just one season of college basketball. Irving began his NBA career with a bang and was easily the Cavaliers best player in the 2011/2012 NBA schedule. Irving finished the season as near-unanimous winner of the NBA Rookie of the Year Award, was the MVP in the Rising Stars Challenge, and was the only unanimous selection to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. He became the youngest player in NBA history to score 40 points in Madison Square Garden — a year younger than Michael Jordan when Jordan did it in 1985. Irving is a two time NBA All-Star starter and was voted the All-Star game MVP in 2014. Irving is the future of the Cavaliers roster and will be hoping to lead the side back to the elusive playoffs.

Cleveland Cavaliers Star From the Past: Lebron James

Never in NBA history has a player gone from beloved franchise hero to villainous traitor in such a short period. Lebron James was selected with the number 1 draft pick in the 2003 NBA draft and quickly emerged as one of the leading players in the NBA. In his time at the Cavaliers he led the franchise to the playoffs on five occasions as well as the Eastern Conference Title in 2007. He won the NBA MVP award twice and was a regular selection for the All-Star game. James' contract at the Cavaliers expired at the end of the 2009/2010 NBA season and he made the controversial decision to sign with the Miami Heat. James has been called a traitor by the majority of Cleveland and is booed out of the building whenever he returns to his former team.

Cleveland Cavaliers Head Coach: David Blatt

David Blatt was hired as the Cavs head coach in June after Mike Brown was fired. This will be Blatt's first time hosting an American basketball team but he has plenty of experience in Europe, being one of the most successful American coaches in European basketball history. Over four years as Maccabi Tel Aviv head coach, he compiled a 225–55 record. Blatt is known as an excellent communicator who gets the best out of his players and teams. He is widely regarded as an offensive genius.
