Cleveland host Milwaukee in an all-star clash with the red-hot Cavaliers ready to post a major win against top-shelf competition.

Best Bet

Bucks @ Cavaliers (11:10am)

Caveliers -2

Cleveland look well-placed to claim a big scalp when they host a Milwaukee team the market continues to overrate.

The Bucks have a supremely talented roster but that has not resulted in a strong cover record. They have covered just 3 of their last 13 off a win and just 1 of their last 5 on the road. They have also just covered 1 of 5 off scoring 125-plus.

The Cavs have been absolutely outstanding at home. They have covered 15 of 19 at home while they have covered 18 of their last 21 against teams with a winning road record.

They have covered 6 of 7 against teams with a win rate of .600 or above.

This is a huge opportunity for Cleveland – one they will take.

Next Best

Pacers @ Celtics (11:40am)

Over 231.5

Boston have a big over record at home and that should continue against a Pacers team that play up-tempo.

The over is 10-2 when the Celtics are at home and 13-3 when they are at home against teams with a losing road record. The over is 4-1 when Boston play a losing team.

The over is also 5-0 when the Pacers are against a winning team and 6-1 when they play a team with a record of .600 or above.

The over has hit in five of the last six Pacers-Celtics meetings and the expectations are we will see another free-wheeling affair here.

Value Bet

Trailblazers @ Thunder (12:10pm)


The Thunder did the job at home against the Trailblazers two days back and can do same again. Portland have failed to cover five straight so betting is all wrong. Oklahoma City have covered 9 of 13 off a win and 5 of 6 home games. Betting in this should be closer to pick ’em.
