Cavaliers at Thunder: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Cavaliers 109, Thunder 100
Money line (ML)
The CAVALIERS (-155) are 14 games under .500, so on paper the fact they’re favorites might raise eyebrows. But the Thunder (+130) are banged up, and Cleveland is coming off a huge 24-point road win in San Antonio.

Against the spread (ATS)
The CAVALIERS -3 (-115) are worth a roll of the dice on the road after looking so good against the Spurs last time out. Of course, we’ve seen that before from Cleveland, and then they have gotten dusted by a much worse team. They’re erratic, so go lightly.
UNDER 212.5 (-110) is the play, as Cleveland’s offense has scored 105 or fewer points in seven of the past eight outings. For OKC, they’re also struggling mightily to put points on the board, posting 108 or fewer points in four straight and seven of the past eight outings.
