Cavaliers Losing Streak

The Cleveland Cavaliers have tied the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for most consecutive losses in professional sports the same week that FC Barcelona broke the record for most consecutive wins in Spain’s football history at 16.  There is even talk of Barcelona winning the treble. No club has ever won the treble twice and the thought of Barcelona doing it in just three years would be nearly miraculous.   

But those poor Cavaliers!  They have lost 26 straight.

"Everybody's mad as hell," guard Daniel Gibson said when told of his coach's surly mood. "To lose like that and for it to get to this point and still sometimes not see a sense of urgency, I can see why it would push you to that point. What are you going to do? It's either do it or don't.

"The guys have to figure that out."

Bookmaker.com was considering offering odds on whether the Cavs would make it 27and enjoy the most futile record in professional sports history.  They are set to play the Los Angeles Clippers (20-32)at home Friday night.  Further odds could include, at what number will the slide end. As for FC Barcelona, they were at -600 vs. Sporting Gijon in the Spanish Liga, which suggests their streak will also continue. 

Perhaps we will get odds on that happening as well.

Note that the Lakers were the most bet on team Thursday, going up against Boston

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Not much has gone right for Washington State this season, including three losses in four PAC-12 contests. While the Cougars were able to bring down UCLA earlier in the year, Washington State has dropped its other three conference games by an average of 14 points apiece. Although Washington State will have an opportunity to protect its home floor in Thursday night’s PAC-12 action, they’ll be facing off against an Oregon Ducks team with two victories in three attempts on the road this season.

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

Just last season the Portland Trail Blazers won 53 games and reached the Western Conference final. They are currently on pace to win 33 games and miss the postseason for the first time in seven years. There still is plenty of basketball left with the Blazers hitting the midway point and snatching a victory last time out. But the West is stacked and the Houston Rockets are one of the teams at the top of the standings. Led by NBA scoring leader James Harden, Houston is one of five times within three games of each other in the congested West race and look to get back in the win column after dropping Tuesday’s game in Memphis.
