BETTING TRENDS

Brooklyn are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games.

Brooklyn are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against Cleveland.

Brooklyn are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Brooklyn are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Cleveland.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Cleveland's last 5 games.

Cleveland are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.

Cleveland are 12-2 SU in their last 14 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Nets have been on fire lately as they're on an 8 game winning streak averaging 120.5 points per game on that strecht and 5-1 in their last 6 games against the Cavs. The Cavaliers have won 5 of their last 6 games and have one of the best records at home in the league as they have lost only 3 games in Cleveland so far this season. They're only allowing 103 points per game at home so I expect them to slow down the Nets offense. I'm going with the Cavs.
