LeBron James. The King, as they call him. King of not covering, that is. The Cavs are running away with the worst ATS mark in the league this season. Now boasting a 12-30-1 ATS record, they’ll be faced with the tall task of covering a double-digit spread against Orlando. Luckily for Cavs backers, they’ve thrived as a double-digit favorite … oh wait, nevermind. They’re 0-11 in that spot.
Tonight’s four-gamer features the lowly Cavs, a Boston-Philly rematch back in the States, and a Royal Rumble between the T-Wolves and Rockets. Oh, and the Pacers head to Portland — can’t forget that one. — Mark Gallant

ORLANDO MAGIC AT CLEVELAND CAVALIERS (-11) | O/U: 227
7 p.m. ET | TNT
What I’m watching for: Is this rock bottom for the Cavs? We’re still searching. They’ve lost to bad teams. They’ve lost to good teams. They’ve denied anything’s wrong. They’ve openly sought out reporters to say how worried they are. Is this the night where the ATS streak ends? How far down does the rabbit hole go for this team?
Additionally, Derrick Rose is back, so … no, their chances of turning it around are not great. — Matt Moore
