Cavaliers at Kings picks and predictions

prediction

Cavaliers 118, Kings 111

money line

The Cavaliers (-210) will cost you more than 2 times your potential return, which is still a bit risky despite the disparity of records between them and the Kings.

PASSPORTand look to the line instead.

Against the spread

CAVALIERS -5.5 (-105) is the play, as they have cashed in 8 of their 10 games overall this season. It’s going to be a close shave, although Cleveland was able to cover an identical number in a 114-100 win on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday.

The Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in the past 5 games on the road and 4-1 ATS in the past 5 against losing teams. While the Kings are 7-2 ATS in the past 9 meetings with the Cavs, this is a new-look Cleveland team playing its best ball in a while. Back the road team.

Over/Under

Play the OVER 224.5 (-110)but go lightly.

While the head-to-head trends lean heavily to the Under, going 5-0 in the past 5 meetings in this series and 4-0 in the past 4 in Sacramento, the Over is worth the play here.

The Over is 17-8 in the past 25 games overall for the Cavaliers while going 17-7-1 in the past 25 road outings dating back to last season. Cleveland ranks 7th in the NBA with 116.3 PPG too, while hitting 3-pointers at the 2nd best rate (39.9%).

On the flip side, Sacramento ranks 25th with 116.8 PPG allowed, and it is 26th in 3-pointer defense, allowing 38.1% from behind the arc.
