New York Knicks vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Picks

This is a tricky game for NBA basketball betting punters because there’s no clear-cut favorite in this game. These two teams already played each other three times this season – all ended in blowouts. The Cavaliers took the W in the first meeting and the Knicks captured the last two.

Moneyline: Bet on the Knicks at +100. New York is coming off a big win over one of the Eastern Conference’s top teams. They will be coming to the Rocket Mortgage Arena with some momentum on their side.

ATS: Pick the Knicks to cover the 1.5-point spread. The narrowed spread set for this game bodes well for the Knicks, who are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games.

TOTALs: Take the UNDER at 218.5 points. While both teams aren’t much known for their defense, they are also two low-efficient offensive teams that are in the bottom five in the league in points per game.

Score Prediction: 105 – 100 Knicks
