The Cavaliers were paced by LeBron James with 30 points, 13 rebounds and six assists in the win at Philly. Dwyane Wade tallied 15 points, five assists and four rebounds off the bench. Jeff Green added 13 points, 10 boards and three assists off the bench. Cleveland outscored the Sixers 53-45 in the first half and outscored the hosts in every quarter.

Miami is 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings in Cleveland. The under is 12-4-1 in the last 17 meetings in Cleveland.

Bet on Heat vs. Cavaliers

The Cavaliers are in cruise control mode as LeBron is dominating on a nightly basis and they are getting solid contributions from the bench. This spread seems a little low considering how well Cleveland has been performing, plus Miami doesn't have good recent history in this arena. Take the hosts in this spot.
