Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin

Rajon Rondo made his Cleveland debut vs. Portland on Friday with 11 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and two triples in 17 minutes. His best days are far behind him but this was a good first impression. The Cavs do need another ball-handler behind Darius Garland with Collin Sexton and Ricky Rubio out for the season and there’s a path to 20 minutes if he proves he can play some average defense. We’re not ready to call him a pickup outside of very deep leagues for now.

Golden State Warriors DFS Spin

Klay Thompson (Achilles) will play in Sunday's game vs. the Cavaliers. As expected, Thompson will make his season debut after being sidelined for 941 days. He will be brought along slowly, playing only 15-20 minutes, and will not play in back-to-backs, so fantasy managers should be patient and wait for him to get his legs back under him.

Cavs vs. Warriors NBA Betting Prediction

The Cavs are winless against the spread in their last four games against the Warriors, who are 12-3 against the number in their last 15 games coming off a loss. They’re also 19-6-1 against the spread in their last 26 home games, are 13-5 against the number in their last 18 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game and are 25-10-1 at the betting window in their last 36 home games as a favorite.
