Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been in the news on a positive note as this team looks to build on their “Sexland” tandem of Darius Garland and Collin Sexton. Unfortunately, both players are not going to be on the roster due to injuries so they will expect to have bigger roles for other players such as rookie Damyean Dotson and Isaac Okoro. Andre Drummond will have to double up on his touches but he will have his hands full going up against Brook Lopez and Bobby Portis. Things are not looking well for the Cavaliers in this game as their backcourt rotation is heavily undermanned.
Players to watch: C. Sexton PG 8 GP 8 GS 37.4 MIN 25.1 PTS 0.5 OR 1.6 DR 2.1 REB 3.5 AST 1.4 STL 0.3 BLK 2.1 TO 2.9 PF 1.6 AST/TO 20.04 PER

Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks just got their winning streak snapped by the Utah Jazz but this team has not been convincing so far owning a 5-4 record. But this is a game that they should be winning as the Cleveland Cavaliers don’t have their top guards handling the rock. It should be a field day for Jrue Holiday going up against rookies while Giannis Antetokuonmpo is expected to dominate as well. Khris Middleton doesn’t have much threat from his matchups as the Bucks look to get back in their winning rhythm. Expect this team to try and get to a strong start and get their chemistry kicking in doing so.
Players to Watch: G. Antetokounmpo PF 8 GP 8 GS 31.3 MIN 26.1 PTS 1.9 OR 9 DR 10.9 REB 5.4 AST 1.4 STL 0.9 BLK 3.5 TO 3.4 PF 1.5 AST/TO 27 PER
