It’s a rematch of the 1st Round of the 2023 Playoffs as the New York Knicks take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Stakes are once again high with playoff seeding on the line, so both teams will be highly motivated to get the win here. I’ve gone in-depth and prepared a Same Game Parlay featuring a pick on the spread and two Player Prop Bets. Continue reading below to see it.

Let’s dive into my SGP bet now!

CLE Cavaliers -5 (-110)

Donovan Mitchell 4+ Made Threes (+125)

Donte DiVincenzo Over 16.5 Points (-120)

Same Game Parlay odds: +588

CLE Cavaliers -5 (-110)

The Knicks fall-off has been well documented, they just aren’t the same team without Julius Randle and OG Anunoby, There’s still no timetable set for either of them returning, this team is in danger of dropping into the play-in tournament if they don’t turn things around. I can’t see that happening tonight as they take on the Cavaliers, a team that’s looking for revenge after the Knicks eliminated them from the postseason last year.

The Cavs are 3-1 SU in their last 4 games and 13-4 SU in their last 17 overall. Winning at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse has been a tough task for any team in the NBA this season, Cleveland has won 11 of their last 13 games there. Donovan Mitchell didn’t play against Detroit on Friday, but the team still delivered a win showing that they are still dangerous even if their best player is out. With New York managing just 92 and 99 points in their last 2 games, I’m rolling with the Cavaliers here.

Donovan Mitchell 4+ Made Threes (+125)

Mitchell took the night off vs Detroit so he should be healthy for tonight’s game. He has some unfinished business against the Knicks after falling short in the playoffs last season. He’s faced them twice this season and scoring 26 and 30 points. His game at Madison Square Garden was particularly impressive as he connected on 6 threes carrying the Cavaliers to an upset victory. I’m expecting more of the same from him tonight. Over his last 7 outings he’s knocking down almost 46% of his three-point attempts and with Randle and Anunoby out of the way the Knicks will struggle with their coverages on Mitchell here. Opponents are shooting 42.6% from downtown vs New York in their last 3 games, we just saw Curry and Klay Thompson connect on 8 and 4 threes against them at MSG on Friday. I’m confident Mitchell can do something similar here.

Donte DiVincenzo Over 16.5 Points (-120)

DiVincenzo is currently the 2nd scoring option on the Knicks behind Jalen Brunson. That’s mainly due to injuries, but also Bojan Bogdanovic struggling a bit as he settles into his new environment. DiVincenzo is averaging 21.4 points per game over his last 9 outings on really solid shooting splits (44% from the field and almost 39% from downtown). He has cleared this line 9 times over his last 13 games. Head coach Tom Thibodeau’s options are very limited offensively, they have scored under 100 points in 2 games in a row, so we could see them spread the floor a bit more here. That would certainly benefit DiVincenzo who does most of his damage from three-point land. He’s scored in double figures 5 times in his last 7 games vs the Cavaliers, mostly as a 3rd or even 4th scoring option. I have faith in him delivering here, otherwise the Knicks might get blown out.
