LINE MOVEMENT

Cleveland opened as a 14.5-point favorite before the spread dropped by a point. The total has gone up slightly from 228.5. The spread is at -13.5 almost everywhere now, but can be bet at -14 in Las Vegas. The total is 229 at most books, but through shopping around it can be found at 229.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Friday morning, 62 percent of public bets are siding with the Cavs. Online wager info also shows that an even 50 percent of bets are on the over and the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Power forward Alan Williams (knee) and shooting guard Devin Booker (hand) are both questionable to play tonight. Small forward TJ Warren (knee) is doubtful. Center Tyson Chandler (neck) is out indefinitely, while point guard Brandon Knight (knee) has missed the entire season. For Cleveland, three players are questionable - small forward Cedi Osman (hip), center Tristan Thompson (ankle) and shooting guard Rodney Hood (back). Power forward Larry Nance Jr. (hamstring) and shooting guard Kyle Korver (personal) are both out.

BETTING STRATEGY

Cleveland rolled to a 129-107 victory at Phoenix on March 13. Last season when the Suns played in Cleveland, the Cavs won by a count of 118-103. So don't necessarily be afraid of the huge spread. Additionally, Phoenix has lost its last four games all by at least 15 points. If Booker plays tonight, that is an upgrade. But this is still a checked out Suns squad. LeBron James won't allow his team to take this game lightly. Expect another blowout and for the Cavaliers to cover this huge spread.
