After beating the Timberwolves 106-90 on January 31, Cleveland now boasts nine wins for their past ten games. Lebron hit a game-high that night in Minnesota with 36 points, and it was Love’s first time back with a Cavalier’s jersey on. He earned his 27th double-double this year. The team is now 13/4 to win the NBA Championship.
On Wednesday at 8:00 PM ET, the Cavaliers will head down south to face the Heat. Miami is 22-29 SU and 23-26-2 ATS, which is notably lower than Cleveland’s 32-21 record straight up and 25-28 record against the spread. Miami will also be missing Dwayne Wade, who’s out with a hamstring injury, leaving oddsmakers no choice but to favor Cleveland by a hefty 11.5-point spread. When the two teams faced off in December, Miami won the game 101-91.
Take a good long look at this highly acclaimed Eastern Conference force with 13/4 odds. If these Cavs continue playing this way all year long, those odds won’t last.
