Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Picks

Things have drastically changed this season for the Warriors and the Cavaliers, who were NBA future betting favorites a couple of seasons ago. The Warriors are hampered with injuries to their big stars, while the Cavs are still rebuilding two years after LeBron James left for Los Angeles.

Moneyline: Pick the Cavaliers at -125. The Cavs aren’t a good home team with a 6-19 record at Rocket Mortgage Arena, but I feel they have the bulk (Love and Thompson) in their frontline to bully ball the Warriors.

ATS: Bet on the Cavs to cover the 1.5-point spread. The Cavaliers are 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games.

TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 221.5 points. The Cavaliers and the Warriors are both in the bottom five of points per game rankings this season. However, I still feel the lack of defense will allow these teams to combine for more than 221 points.

Score Prediction: 119 – 112 Cavaliers
