Cleveland Cavaliers vs Phoenix Suns: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

After just 1 game since returning from injury, Donovan Mitchell is already out. The Cavs didn’t miss him too much though as they routed his former team the Jazz 129-113 last night in Salt Lake City. Mitchell is expected back in the line-up tonight as the Cavs face Phoenix on a 2nd night of a back-to-back. Not the most ideal scenario for him to come back as Cleveland is only 5-8 SU in 13 such games this season, with 4 losses in their last 5 games. Phoenix dominated the first meeting of the season in mid-March 117-111, behind 37 points from Kevin Durant. Mitchell did not play in that game, without him the team is just 11-13 SU this year. If there’s one thing the Cavs have to improve on compared to that first meeting it’s blocks. They finished the game without blocking a single shot in the 6-point loss.

The Suns recorded a much needed win at New Orleans the other day, mainly thanks to Devin Booker who exploded for 52 points in a 124-111 triumph. All 5 Suns starters scored in double figures, although that’s a good thing, the bench production is a worry as the Suns got just 9 points from their reserves in the win. As things stand, the Suns would face Sacramento in the play-in tournament on the road, but things can still change with 7 games remaining. Ahead of tonight’s game they’re 5.5 point favorites, which is understandable considering their 5-2 ATS/SU record over the last 7 games. This team is also on a run of 8 wins in 11 games vs East teams and 7-2 SU in their last 9 vs Central Division opponents.

Cleveland Cavaliers Point Spread Prediction

Cavaliers +5.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Mitchell returning should spark the Cavaliers here. Playing their 2nd game in two nights won’t be ideal, but against an inconsistent Suns team I think they should be able to keep things close here. Back Cleveland to cover.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Phoenix Suns Total Points Prediction: Under 228.5

Under 228.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

A total of 228 points were scored when the two teams played in mid-March, that’s exactly where the oddsmakers have set tonight’s projected total. In order for the Cavaliers to stay competitive in this game they’ll have to bring it on the defensive end. Pace will be a major factor in achieving that goal, this team is the slowest paced offense in the NBA over the last 10 games, averaging just 94.1 possessions per game. Points have been hard to come by during this stretch of games, they’re in the bottom 10 in efficiency scoring just 113.1 points per 100 possessions. The Suns have been doing a lot better, but consistency is something that’s plagued this team the entire season. Because of this, we’ve seen the under cash 8 times in the last 9 Suns home games, with the regular season drawing to a close I think more teams will tighten things up at the back in an effort to get ready for the postseason. The last 10 meetings are averaging 218.7 points per game, I am backing the under in this one.
