Why Bet The Cleveland Cavaliers
Cleveland (33-15 SU, 20-26-2 ATS) put n emphatic 125-97 smackdown on Minnesota on Wednesday night to easily cover the spread as a 6.5-point home favorite to improve to 3-1 over their last four games.
Kyrie Irving scored 14 points and dished out a career-high 14 assists while LeBron James had 27 points and 12 assists to help the Cavs kick off February on a positive note after they went 7-8 in January. The 37 assists were a season high and it was the most points the Cavs scored in a game since a Dec. 7 home win against the Knicks.
"Are we going to have 37 assists every night? No. We have to make shots still, but the way Kyrie was moving the ball, myself, got guys involved, guys felt good when the ball got to them and they just locked and loaded and shot," James said. "We have to continue to do a great job and see what happens.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
LeBron James may be whining louder than ever these days, but the Cleveland cavaliers are the easy pick to beat the dysfunctional New York Knicks – again.
The Cavs got a big win against Minnesota the last time out and I believe they’re going to start taking their games more seriously after LeBron’s recent bitch-fest.
The Cavaliers are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games playing on two days rest while New York has gone 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win and 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a straight up win.
The road team in this rivalry is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings, making LeBron and company the easy pick to win by double digits for the fourth straight game.
My final score prediction is Cleveland 114 New York 100
