Suns at Cavaliers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Suns 119, Cavaliers 104

Money line (ML)

Cleveland has lost six in a row and nine of 10. The Suns have won four in a row and no one has more road wins than they do.

Betting the money line seems like less than an ideal bet. At -750, you win just $13.33 for every $100 wager, so there isn’t enough value to bet the chalk. Betting on Cleveland to win straight up isn’t smart, either. Move to the spread and total.

PASS.

Against the spread (ATS)

Phoenix’s 39-24-1 ATS record is the second-best in the league. The Suns are also 17-12-1 ATS on the road.

Only the Houston Rockets have covered the spread fewer times than the Cavs’ 24 ATS wins. Cleveland has not covered the spread in any of its last nine losses.

Take the SUNS -12.5 (-110).

Over/Under (O/U)

The Suns are averaging 118 points per game over their last five outings. The Cavs are averaging only 102 PPG in their six-game losing skid.

The total for Tuesday’s game is relatively low considering those numbers. Four of the Suns’ last five games went Over the total, while the Cavs have alternated going Over and Under in their last seven games.

Take OVER 219.5 POINTS (-110).
