Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

So far 2024 has been a disaster for the Nets who are only 1-6 SU in the last 7 games played. They are barely clinging on to the final play-in tournament spot, but if things don’t turn around soon both the Hawks and Raptors will pass them up. Last time out they dropped a home game to the Portland Trail Blazers in OT, that wasn’t a good look as the Blazers are one of the worst teams in the NBA right now. This team needs some fresh ideas, especially on the offensive end where they rank only 19th in efficiency over the last 10 games. The return of Ben Simmons could resolve a few issues, but we’re still unsure when he will recover from his back injury.

Prior to their current 3-game win streak, the Cavaliers were in a similar situation but they’re slowly turning things around. Three wins in a row sounds good on paper, however two of them were against the Wizards and one of them was against the Spurs, two teams that have a combined record of 12-61 SU this season. Just like the Nets, the Cavs are also missing their 2nd best player Darius Garland who is out with a jaw injury. They’ll be happy to have this game at home where they’ve won 7 of their last 9 games. The first meeting of the season between the two teams was decided by just a single point as the Cavs won 114-113 in Brooklyn.

Cleveland Cavaliers Point Spread

Cleveland Cavaliers -2 Point Spread is priced at -110 odds at the time of publishing.

When they’re the favorites the Cavs are pretty hard to beat. They boast a 15-6 SU record in 21 such games this season. They’re in much better form at the moment with 8 wins in 11 games, while the Nets have just 1 victory in their last 7 outings. Taking all that into account, I think backing the Cavaliers to cover is the likely outcome here.

Nets vs Cavaliers Total Points: Over 224.5

Over 224.5 Total Points is available at time of publishing. Playable at that number.

It is a relatively modest 224.5 projected total for this game, at least by today’s NBA standards. The two teams went over that number in the first meeting of the season, in general the over has been the more consistent bet in head-to-head meetings over the years. In the last 10 meetings we saw this bet cash a total of 7 times, with an average of 226.1 points per game scored. Games played in Cleveland are 4-1 on the O/U in the last 5 meetings, after seeing the last 2 Nets games and last 5 Cavaliers games all going over 224.5 points I feel like backing the over is a really good bet here. The Cavs are also the 6th best team in the NBA in terms of offensive efficiency (121.1) in the last 10 games played, so expect them to attack early and often here. Back the points.
