Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers are reported on the media right now for being a dysfunctional team and for other unlikely reasons. Going to the Nuggets game, they are going to have a hard time containing Jokic in Tristan Thompson gets into foul trouble. Recently, the Cavs traded for Dante Exum and it has not panned out for the newly acquired player. Cavs are going to rely heavily on Collin Sexton to lead the way with Darius Garland backing him up. It will be a long night for the Cavs but if they limit the production of the players around Jokic, they may get into the striking distance to pull an upset.
