Cleveland Vs Brooklyn NBA Betting Guide

Written by on March 23, 2016

What do you get when you have a team that has clinched a playoff berth going against a team that has been officially eliminated from playoff contention? The answer would usually be a comfortable victory for the better team, but you never really know what you are going to get from the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, especially when they head out on the road. The Cavs were basically the consensus pick to win the Eastern Conference this season, and while they do have the lead right now, they are making pretty tough work of it. This is a team that appears to be severely lacking in any sort of chemistry, and while that may be okay during the regular season, it is probably not going to work once they start facing the really good teams when the playoffs begin. For now, the Cavs are just trying to lock up the conference title, and they can get one step closer to that with a win in Brooklyn on Thursday night.

Why bet on the Cleveland Cavaliers

I have spent a lot of time writing about the Cavaliers (50-20) this season, and the unfortunate thing is that a lot of those words have been focused on the negative aspects of what’s going on in Cleveland right now. We all tend to forget that this team still has a 1.5 game lad at the top of the Eastern Conference, and that they have been pretty damn consistent all season long. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games, and have only really looked totally vulnerable when they head out on the road. It is those road woes that make winning the East all the more important for the Cavs, which is why it’s tough to see them slipping up against a team as bad as the Brooklyn Nets. Cleveland are averaging 103.9 PPG, and are giving up 97.8 PPG.

Why bet on the Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets (19-51) are a total disaster, and it’s tough to come up with any reason why they might be able to get anything out of this game. Realistically, their only real hope of stealing a win is if the cavaliers come out and lay an egg, as the Nets really don’t seem capable of coming up with a win without some assistance from their opponents. Brooklyn only has 2 wins in their last 10 games, and one of those came against the Philadelphia 76ers, who are actually marginally worse than the Nets. The current losing streak for the Nets is at 3 games, but that should be 4 by the time this one is over. Brooklyn are averaging 98.3 PPG, and are giving up 104.8 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Cavaliers have already taken down the Nets twice this season, and I see absolutely no reason why they won’t make it 3 in a row.
