OUR PREDICTION: Both teams have been bad bets at the window, so let's look at the total. The over is a perfect 4-0 in the Cavs' last four games overall, is 11-4 in their last 15 conference games and is 4-0 in their last four games coming off a loss. The over has also been cashing when the Nets play on the road, going 16-7-1 in their last 24 road games and going 4-1 in their last five games coming off an ATS loss. With how hot Cleveland's offense is and how off the Cavs' defense continues to be, the over looks like a good bet to cash tonight in Cleveland.
