Betting on NBA Games in the Eastern Conf. this Tuesday Evening
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
Fans betting on NBA games Tuesday evening will have the opportunity to sink their teeth into a total of 5 different matchups. There are plenty of intriguing matchups on the day, with some being more competitive than others. However, if players are looking for an easy prediction this Tuesday night they need to look no further than the Eastern Conference matchup between the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Oddly enough, this will be the first time that LeBron James and Dwayne Wade have teamed up against their former team. Let’s take a look at what kind of turnout sports betting sites are predicting for tonight’s contest.
Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers – Tuesday, November 28th
When: 7:00 pm ET
Where: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, Ohio
TV: NBA TV
Stream: NBA League Pass
Miami Heat +4 ½ (-110) 209 (-110) +160
Cleveland Cavaliers -4 ½ (-110) 209 (-110) -185
Surprisingly enough, the Heat; who rank near the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference with a 10-9 record on the season, are actually facing some decent odds this evening. Furthermore, the 4 ½ point spread is predicting that the Heat will play competitively against Cleveland. Miami has had a so-so season at best but the thing holding the team back so far in 2017 is inconsistency: their inability to put their best foot forward each time they step on the court. Against LeBron & Co., there is no other way to overcome what many players betting on NBA games this season consider to be the best player in the NBA.
If the Heat are to shock the world this evening, they’ll need Goran Dragic to get them there. Dragic leads the franchise in points with his averages of 19.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game. Dion Waiters is No. 2 in points for the Heat as he’s putting up 15.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists each contest for Miami. Those numbers aren’t all that inspiring and actually make you question this evening’s NBA odds.
The Cavaliers pounce into Tuesday’s contest flashing a 13-7 record that keeps getting better each week. Cleveland currently ranks 3rd in the Eastern Conference, a position they’re not all that used to being in with Bron in the lineup. To claim the top spot in the conference, Cleveland would have to usurp the 13-6 Detroit Pistons as well as the 18-4 Boston Celtics. Passing the Pistons might not be that hard but passing the Celtics, with the way Kyrie Irving has been playing, might be easier said than done.
Players betting on NBA games this evening should expect James to have a big game against Miami. Right now James is putting up 28.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 8.5 assists per game. In lieu of Irving, both Kevin Love and Derrick Rose have emerged as contributors. Love is putting up 17.7 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 1.9 assists. Rose does his part with an average of 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per night.
