The Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers prediction.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have been in a rut as they’ve split their last six games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting routed by the Hornets in a 110-99 road loss last night. Cam Thomas led the team with 31 points on 12 of 24 shooting, Mikal Bridges added 19 points while Nicolas Claxton chipped in with 14 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Nets shot 40 percent from the field and 14 of 42 from the 3-point line, but they were always fighting an uphill battle and couldn’t recover after scoring just 17 points in the second quarter. The Nets will take on the Magic after this one.

Cleveland Cavaliers

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been in fine form as they’ve won five of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to keep it going after outlasting the Timberwolves in a 113-104 overtime win on Friday. Darius Garland led the team with 34 points and eight assists on 13 of 26 shooting, Jarrett Allen added 33 points with 18 rebounds and three assists while Georges Niang chipped in with 16 points, six rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 43 percent from the field and 11 of 34 from the 3-point line as they forced overtime thanks to a clutch free throw from Garland late in the fourth quarter, before they ran away with it in overtime.

Cleveland Cavaliers Team Facts

  • The Cavaliers have won each of their last eight games at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Cavaliers have covered the spread in each of their last nine games as favorites when playing with a rest advantage.
  • Seven of the Cavaliers’ last eight home games against opponents who are on the second leg of a back-to-back have gone OVER the total points line.

Brooklyn Nets Team Facts

  • The Nets have lost each of their last eight games against Central Division opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Nets have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine games as underdogs on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • Each of the Nets’ last five night games have gone OVER the total points line.

Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers prediction

The Nets are still missing some players with Cameron Johnson, Lonnie Walker and Ben Simmons all out, while the Cavaliers are still without Donovan Mitchell and Evan Mobley. The Nets have been playing well below their best lately and their confidence took another gut shot after falling to the slumping Hornets in an ugly loss last night. The Cavaliers are coming into this meeting with plenty of momentum and they looked great in their overtime win over the Timberwolves on Friday, so even though they’re a little banged up, I’m going with the Cavaliers at the reasonable line at home.
