Bet on Cavaliers vs. Knicks

New York actually looks like it has a competent basketball team this season, although the last two years strong starts to the season eventually fell into chaos. But with Porzingis emerging as a star, the Knicks have the look of a team that could snag one of the Eastern Conference playoff spots. This will be a big test against a Cavs squad with issues that haven't really been sorted yet. The spread seems to be a bit big in their favor here. Take the home team.
