Cavaliers vs. Celtics Pick

NBA Predictions: Will new-look Cavaliers down host Celtics? 2/11/18

Are the Cleveland Cavaliers going to win their first game since a slew of trades before the deadline as they take on the host Boston Celtics today at 3:30PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: Boston. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Celtics are a 5-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 212.5 points. Boston opened as a 4-point fave, while the total has gone down from 213.5.

Who the Public Likes: Cleveland. As of Sunday morning, 59 percent of public bets are siding with the visiting Cavaliers. Online wagers also show that 53 percent of bets are on the over.

Who We Like: The two meetings this season have been split 1-1 straight up, while the Celtics have gone 2-0 ATS. Boston has gone 5-4-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings. Cleveland won its second game in a row with a 123-107 victory at the Hawks despite working with a short roster after several trades. The Cavaliers are 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games. The over-under is 6-3-1. Boston has lost two of its last three games following a 97-91 home loss to the Pacers. The Celtics are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games. The over-under is 5-5.

I just can't trust the Cavs in their first game with a new-look roster that now includes George Hill, Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. Boston is strong defensively and should be able to take advantage of a Cleveland squad with very little chemistry right now.
