Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cavaliers entered this season with a goal of turning doubters into believers. After dropping their season-opener vs. the Orlando Magic 94-85, Cleveland salvaged a big win against the visiting Pacers on Saturday. Kevin Love came through with a huge all-around production (21 points, 13 rebounds and 9 assists) and Tristan Thompson racked up a double-double (25 and 13 rebounds) to power the Cavs to their first win of the season.
Players to Watch: Kevin Love (16.0 PPG, 15.5 RPG, and 6.0 APG), Tristan Thompson (20.5 PPG and 12.0 RPG), and Collin Sexton (17.0 PPG, 3.5 RPG, and 2.5 APG)
Milwaukee Bucks Betting
Nobody thought the Bucks would absorb their first loss of the season in just two games, but it did happen on Saturday as the Miami Heat stunned the Eastern Conference heavyweights. After he opened the 2019-20 NBA season with a triple-double, Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 29 points, 17 rebounds, and 9 assists. Khris Middleton added 25 while sharpshooters Wesley Matthews and Kyle Korver added 14 apiece.
Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (29.5 PPG, 15.0 RPG, and 10.0 APG), Khris Middleton (18.5 PPG and 6.0 APG), and Wesley Matthews (10.0 PPG and 2.4 APG)

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Milwaukee Bucks Betting Picks
Betting on NBA games can be tricky most of the time, but not in this game as the Bucks will enter the game with laser-sharp focus. Giannis is going to be a one-man wrecking crew again, giving the Cavs all sorts of problems.
Moneyline: The Bucks opened as whooping -1200 favorites over the +1200 underdog Cavs. I have no problem with these betting odds since it’s almost certain that the Bucks’ domination on the Cavs will continue Monday night (6-4 head-to-head record).
ATS: The -15 Bucks have a 5-4-1 ATS record in the last 10 head-to-head meetings with the Cavs. Sure, Milwaukee is going to win by double-digit, but I am not confident they are going to win that big. I would say the Bucks by just 11 or 12 points.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 223 points. Cleveland is averaging 85.00 points per game in their first two games while Milwaukee is scoring 117.00 per contest. The Bucks are an elite scoring team with a top-level offensive rating. However, with the way the Cavs are scoring in the last two games, I am not 100 percent sure this game will exceed the O/U total.
Score Prediction: 111-98 Bucks
