Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking like a team that is slowly dispatching their old pieces and making room for upgrades. This team will be boasting the third-overall pick in the 2021 draft in Evan Mobley and he is expected to see action early this NBA pre-season. Alongside Mobley, Lauri Markannen is looking to prove that he fits in the roster and help stretch the floor. Jarrett Allen will be the team’s regular starting center along with the talented backcourt tandem of Collin Sexton and Darius Garland. Kevin Love is the last remnant of the championship year of the Cavs and he is expected to be the first man off the bench.
