Nets vs. Cavaliers Pick

NBA Predictions: Will LeBron, Cavs cover big spread vs. Nets? 2/27/18

Are the host Cleveland Cavaliers going to cover the double-digit spread tonight when they play the Brooklyn Nets at 7PM ET?


According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Cavaliers are listed as a 10.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 221 points.

Cleveland opened as an 11.5-point fave before the line dropped by a point, while the total has fallen after opening at 222.5. The line can still be found at -11 at some books.


As of Tuesday afternoon, 61 percent of public bets are coming in on the Cavaliers. Online wager info also shows that 58 percent of bets are siding with the over.


Nets center Jahlil Okafor has missed the last three games with a calf injury and is questionable to play tonight. For Cleveland, Kevin Love is still about a month away from returning after breaking his hand in late January.


Cleveland is the fresher team as the Nets played at home last night in a 104-87 victory over the Bulls which snapped an eight-game losing skid. The two meetings have been split this season with the Cavs winning 109-109 at home on Nov. 22. Brooklyn has actually covered the spread in the last four meetings, but I feel this is a good recipe for the Cavs to win decisively having an extra day of rest and staying at home against the fatigued Nets.
