It looks like the law of averages is finally catching up with the Cleveland Cavaliers after a surprising 2-2 start. Finally free from injuries, Kevin Love is racking up big numbers for Cleveland this season, including a 29-point, 8-rebound performance in a 131-111 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Picks

Despite playing without their two starters (Kanter and Brown), the Celtics enter Tuesday night’s ballgame as the overwhelming NBA Moneyline favorite at -225. Boston swept Cleveland in four meetings last season, with Jayson Tatum leading the way with 18.5 points and 4.5 rebounds.

Moneyline: The Celtics will cruise to their fifth win of the season by dismantling the Cavaliers. Walker and Tatum are expected to put up big outputs against the Cavs defense that is allowing 111 points per game.

ATS: The Celtics will have a 4-2 ATS record at the end of this game. Boston’s stingy defense, which is conceding only 103 points per game, should power them to a double-digit victory.

TOTALs: This game will fall short of the O/U Total (213 points). Boston is averaging 108 points per contest, while Cleveland is scoring at 103 points. The Celtics’ defense should hold the Cavaliers below 100 points in this game.

Score Prediction: 108-94 Celtics
