NBA Playoffs Odds: Cavaliers Vs Knicks Betting Pick & Prediction

In the opening round of the NBA playoffs, you do expect to see some rather one-sided affairs, but you can also expect that some series will go longer than others. Often times, the teams sitting in the middle of the pack in the seedings are evenly matched, which tends to make for a long, hard-fought series. It looks like we might ne getting a series just like that with the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks heading into Game 3 of their series all tied up at 1-1. It is very much mission accomplished for the Knicks, as their win on the road means that they now have home court advantage, but they will be well aware that a loss at MSG will swing things back in the other direction. The bookies have this one as tight, with the Knicks in as a modest 2-point underdog. The point total for this one is set at 211 ½. Let’s break down the NBA betting analysis for this important game to see wich team unlead the series.

When: Friday April 21 at 8:30 PM EST
Where: Madison Square Garden, NYC


Why bet on the Cleveland Cavaliers

Given that the Cavaliers lost 3 of 4 to the Knicks in the regular season, they were probably well aware that they were going to be in for a tough time of it in the playoffs. It certainly started out that way, as they took a 101-97 loss in Game 1, losing home court advantage in the playoffs. We were going to see rather quickly what this team is made of in Game 2, and they showed out well, winning that one by a score of 107-90, which puts them in a much better place as they head out on the road for the next game in the series. There is some bad news for the Cavaliers ahead of the next 2 games, starting with the fact that they went just 20-21 on the road this season, while also losing in both trips to Madison Square Garden this season. Can they buck those trends and win back home court advantage?

Why bet on the New York Knicks

Starting out on the road in the playoffs is never an easy task, with the majority of road teams more than happy to get out of town with the split. In that case, it is very much mission accomplished for the Knicks after they got that split by winning Game 1. As good as it is to go home knowing that they now have the advantage, it won’t mean much if the Knicks can’t get the job done in their own building. The win in Game 1 will also have been a relief when you consider that the Knicks ended the regular season by losing 2 in a row. This is a team that had pretty similar home and road records this season, going 23-18 at home and 24-17 on the road. As we mentioned already, they had a pair of wins at home to the Cavs in the regular season, which is why they are modest favorites here.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I think we are looking at a series that might go the distance, or at least to 6 games. Game 3 is huge for both teams and will definitely swing the momentum one way or the other. I like the Knicks to come out on top in a close one.
