Advice and prediction

Difficult to imagine the Nets lost to this one, so the moneyline is a decent pick here. Don’t touch the spread, though — especially with chance of Garland returning and Durant out.

The best bets here are all James Harden-oriented. No KD? you better believe Harden is about to go off for 30-plus against the Cavs. Then BetMGM has his rebounds and assist over-unders at 6.5 and 8.5, respectively, while he’s had a triple-double each game since joining the Nets? The rebound number is better, but he’ll hit both of those, like he will the points.

The over on Kyrie Irving’s point total is a very good one, too.

Prediction: Nets 123, Cavaliers 119
