Cleveland Cavaliers vs Brooklyn Nets 4/12/2022 Betting Odds
Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers are coming into this game having forward Evan Mobley back and the rookie needs to grow up quickly in order for them to get over the healthier Brooklyn Nets. This team will still miss the services of Jarrett Allen who is still on the injured list. Darius Garland will also have to play his game and the first-time all-star’s performance will be the barometer of how far the Cavaliers will go. Lauri Markkanen has been a good addition to the team and he has been getting more minutes on the floor to help with the team’s size. This will be a huge test for the young Cavaliers if they are ready to contend in the playoffs.
Players to watch: D. Garland PG 67 GP 67 GS 35.9 MIN 21.8 PTS 0.6 OR 2.7 DR 3.3 REB 8.6 AST 1.3 STL 0.1 BLK 3.7 TO 1.7 PF 2.3 AST/TO 19.02 PER
J. Allen C 56 GP 56 GS 32.3 MIN 16.1 PTS 3.4 OR 7.3 DR 10.8 REB 1.6 AST 0.8 STL 1.3 BLK 1.7 TO 1.7 PF 1 AST/TO 23.13 PER
C. Sexton PG 11 GP 11 GS 28.7 MIN 16 PTS 1.2 OR 2.1 DR 3.3 REB 2.1 AST 0.9 STL 0 BLK 2.8 TO 2.3 PF 0.7 AST/TO 11.31 PER.
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets are still one of the best teams in the league despite a 7th place finish in the NBA Eastern Conference. They are going to be a tough customer to handle with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant healthy. Ben Simmons is still not ready to join the roster as the team feels he will be ready by the first round of the playoffs. More or less, the combination of Durant and Irving will be tough for the Cavaliers to handle. Having Seth Curry and Andre Drummond gives the team more dimension from the inside and the outside while Bruce Brown has stepped up as a reliable starter.
Players to Watch: K. Durant PF 54 GP 54 GS 37.2 MIN 30.1 PTS 0.5 OR 6.8 DR 7.4 REB 6.2 AST 0.9 STL 1 BLK 3.4 TO 2.1 PF 1.8 AST/TO 25.91 PER
K. Irving PG 28 GP 28 GS 37.6 MIN 27.2 PTS 0.5 OR 3.8 DR 4.3 REB 5.8 AST 1.4 STL 0.6 BLK 2.5 TO 2.8 PF 2.3 AST/TO 21.13 PER
S. Curry SG 19 GP 19 GS 29.9 MIN 14.9 PTS 0.2 OR 2.4 DR 2.6 REB 2.6 AST 0.9 STL 0.2 BLK 1.3 TO 2.5 PF 2 AST/TO 14.64 PER.
