The Brooklyn Nets play the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

The game tips off at 7 p.m. and can be seen on YES.

While Brooklyn remains without Nic Claxton (right knee tendinopathy) and Spencer Dinwiddie (ACL surgery), the Cavaliers are much more depleted. Cleveland is without Kevin Love (calf), Matthew Dellavedova (concussion), Dylan Windler (wrist) and Kevin Porter Jr. (personal). Additionally, Collin Sexton (ankle) and Darius Garland (shoulder) are questionable to play.

Advice and prediction

The over is without a doubt the best bet from Wednesday’s game. The Cavaliers don’t have a chance in this one, but they’re still going to put points on the board in response to Brooklyn’s barrage. If either Garland or Sexton plays, the over becomes an even easier target to hit

There isn’t a great second bet on this one. The player scoring props are tough with Irving making his return. The Nets can absolutely cover the double-digit spread, but there’s also the matter of Taurean Prince and Jarrett Allen potentially getting garbage time minutes.

If you’re going to go with a second bet, take the over on Irving’s scoring total.

Prediction: Nets 123, Cavaliers 111
