Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers have gone full-blown with their youth movement with Darius Garland and Collin Sexton forming a dynamic backcourt. They will have more help in the paint after the team signed Jarrett Allen to a long-term deal and he will be joined by 2021 third overall pick Evan Mobley. Isaac Okoro will round up the starting lineup and will share the minutes at that position with former Chicago Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen. Kevin Love is still with the team and reunited with former Minnesota Timberwolves teammate Ricky Rubio to add veteran experience and leadership.

Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies found their cornerstone player with former NBA Rookie of the Year Ja Morant heading on to his third year in the league. Jaren Jackson Jr. has been the team’s second-best scoring option but he missed most of last season. Dillon Brooks has joined Morant in the backcourt adding an offensive punch. This team’s biggest move was trading for bruiser center Steven Adams to the New Orleans Pelicans and parted ways with Jonas Valanciounas. Desmond Bane will start at small forward and he is expected to split the minutes with Kyle Anderson who was fantastic last season.
Players to Watch: J. Morant PG 63 GP 63 GS 32.6 MIN 19.1 PTS 0.9 OR 3.1 DR 4 REB 7.4 AST 0.9 STL 0.2 BLK 3.2 TO 1.4 PF 2.3 AST/TO 16.81 PER
