Cleveland Cavaliers ML over Phoenix Suns (+188)

Even without Donovan Mitchell for the past 10 days or so, the Cavaliers have been able to rack up home wins over Boston and Minnesota, two of the leading teams in each Conference. In their last 17 games at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse they’ve come out on top 13 times, plus they’re also on a run of 8 straight wins over teams from the Western Conference. Both Max Strus and Dean Wade have been upgraded to questionable, it would be a major boost to their bench production if they came.

The form of the Suns has been nothing to brag about over the past 5 games. They do have an OT win over Denver in there, but losses to Boston, OKC and Houston prove that this team might not be as good as some people think. With Devin Booker out of the line-up, their offense has become stagnant and way too reliant on an aging Kevin Durant. Having one guy score 40+ points while others just sit around and watch just isn’t going to cut it here. Phoenix is just 1-5 SU in their last 6 games. With Cleveland winning 2 of the last 3 meetings, I’m happy to take them as home underdogs here.

Dallas Mavericks -4.5 over Chicago Bulls (-108)

Dallas is slowly waking up from their post-All-Star weekend hibernation. They started off just 2-5 SU, however they’ve turned things around with wins consecutive over Miami and Detroit this weekend. Dereck Lively II missed the game vs Detroit, he is expected back here which should improve the interior quite a bit. Chicago has had major issues over their last 3 games on the inside, allowing almost 10 points more down low than their season average, so I’m looking for the Mavs to take advantage of that.

Luka Doncic has continued to amaze, he’s averaging 36.4 points, 9.9 rebounds and 10.8 assists over his last 10 games. I can’t see how the Bulls contain him here, Coby White just isn’t equipped physically to stay in front of the 6-foot-7 Doncic. The Mavs won the first meeting of the season 114-105 at home, they’re 10-5 ATS/SU over their last 15 games. With the Bulls covering just twice in their last 7 at the United Center, I think this is a good spot to back Dallas to win their 3rd straight.

Boston  Celtics -7.5 over Portland Trail Blazers (-110)

And finally, the best team in basketball takes on arguably one of the 3 worst teams in the league. After opening as 12.5 point favorites, the spread on the Celtics has now gone to just 7.5 points which would indicate them possibly opting to rest a couple of big name players. Even if that is the case, I still see them beating a Portland team that’s just 3-12 SU in their last 15 games and has just 1 win in their last 10 at Moda Center.

Boston has dominated the head-to-head meetings 6-2 SU in the last 8 games, they enter this game on a run of 12 wins in 14 games and 9 in 11 on the road. Jayson Tatum is averaging 31 points per game in the last 5 meetings, he should have his way against a Blazers team that ranks only 25th in opponent points per game inside the paint this season. Portland has also been poor on the perimeter, allowing opponents to shoot 38.2% from downtown in their last 3 games, so we expect Boston to dominate from the get-go here.
