Cleveland Cavaliers vs Miami Heat prediction
Cleveland Cavaliers will be looking to extend their winning run to nine games when they welcome Miami Heat at their Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday evening. Miami have been in a fine form of late as well, but beating LeBron James and Co. on the road is easier said than done.
Cavs on fire
Cleveland Cavaliers made a slow start to the season, but they quickly got back on course. Cavs have been producing terrific performances in NBA of late and they are on an eight-game winning run in the league ahead of the visit of Miami Heat. Tyronn Lue’s men rolled over Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, with LeBron James leading the team to the 113-91 victory over Brett Brown’s troops. Cleveland Cavaliers seem to be on top of their game at the moment, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to finish the regular season in top position in the Eastern Conference. Dwayne Wade scored 15 points and added 15 assists in the triumph over Philadelphia and he is likely to pose a big threat for his former teammates.
The likes of Derrick Rose, Tristan Thompson and Isaiah Thomas remain in the recovery room, but coach Tyronn Lue has no fresh injury worries ahead of Tuesday’s clash against Miami Heat.
Three consecutive wins
Miami Heat did well to bounce back from a heavy 120-95 loss to Indiana Pacers, with the team recording three straight wins over the likes of Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves and Chicago Bulls. Erik Spoelstra’s charges have been in a splendid form in November and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Cleveland. Unlike previous season, Miami have been producing scintillating displays on the travels this term and they are definitely capable of shocking the star-studded Cavs at Quicken Loans Arena. Cleveland Cavaliers suit Miami Heat and you should bear in mind that Erik Spoelstra’s team emerged triumphant in each of their previous three meetings with the last season’s runners-up. Slovenia international Goran Dragic has been averaging 19.2 points in the 2017/2018 NBA season, thus Cavs should have him at bay. Hassan Whiteside scored 11 points in a 100-93 win over Chicago on Sunday and seeing that Cleveland center Tristan Thompson misses the match with injury, the Miami Heat ace is likely to enjoy a very successful evening.
A.J. Hammons and Hassan Whiteside should both recover in time to face Cavs, whilst Rodney McGruder and Okaro White are definitely out of contention with injury.
- Cleveland are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home
- Miami scored 100+ points in each of their last three games in NBA
- LeBrone James has been averaging 28.6 points this season
- Cavs hit 15 three pointers in the 113-91 win over 76ers
- Goran Dragic has 19.2 points per game
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Miami Heat betting pick
Both Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat have found their best form of late and a real basketball festival is on the cards. In their last meeting in NBA Miami recorded a 124-121 win over Cleveland and we believe that fans will see a high-scoring affair at Quicken Loans Arena. Taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on over 208.5 points.
Pick: Over 208.5 points
