Cleveland Cavs Fantasy Spin

Kevin Love (illness) had 22 points, eight rebounds, four 3-pointers and one assist in 33 minutes on Friday. Love's recent illness didn't appear slow him down or limit his minutes tonight, and he was efficient with 8-of-14 FGs and 2-of-3 FTs. Another win for fantasy owners is that he avoided any problems after bumping his head on Wednesday, a real concern for a guy with four prior concussions in his NBA career. He continues to suit up, but owners may want to confirm his status before each of the final nine games.

Milwaukee Bucks Fantasy Spin

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle sprain) is questionable Sunday against the Cavaliers. Giannis originally hurt his ankle last Sunday against the 76ers, but appeared to tweak the same leg again on Friday against the Heat. He sat out two games this week prior to Friday, so the Bucks aren't afraid to hold out their MVP. If he can't go, Khris Middleton, Pat Connaughton, Sterling Brown, George Hill and Tony Snell will all see a boost in opportunity.

NBA Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Cavs have covered the spread in 10 of their last 11 games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

Milwaukee

The Bucks have covered the spread in 17 of their previous 25 games overall.

Prediction

This is too big of a number and leaves too much room for error, so I’m going to concentrate on the total. The over has been an outstanding play when these two teams clash, cashing in 14 of the previous 17 meetings in Milwaukee and in 17 of the previous 24 meetings overall. The over is also 4-1 in the Cavs’ last five games coming off a loss and is 6-2 in the Bucks’ last eight games following victory.

Sunday NBA Prediction: Cavs/Bucks over 223.5
