Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers pulled themselves up to a winning record of 8-7 after winning three consecutive games and two of them are against the new-look Brooklyn Nets. This team now has Collin Sexton looking great during their last two matches while Darius Garland is also back and played during their last matchup against the Nets. The Cavs are also looking well with the inclusion of Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince into the fold. Andre Drummond has more players surrounding him and that eases his way into the paint to get some buckets and boards for his team.

Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics are now on a three-game losing streak and two of their last matches were against the Philadelphia 76ers. They did not look good inside the court as the team is not on the same page in most plays.

Brown had 42 points during their last matchup while Marcus Smart and Kemba Walker combined for 39 markers. Other than that, the team had a hard time extracting production from other players such as Tristan Thompson and Daniel Theis.
