Game Totals Prediction

Analysts of bookmakers consider Cleveland to be the clear favorite of the upcoming fight. It is worth agreeing with them. After an offensive defeat in the first match, the Cavaliers are simply obliged to win on their parquet. However, don't expect an easy ride. Victoria will be mined, but the game will turn out to be hard-fought with a lot of fighting.

Our prediction is Cleveland to win with a handicap (-4.5) points for 1.77 in Mostbet.

Cleveland averages 113 points in home games, New York 114 away. Head-to-head confrontations between teams, as a rule, are not very productive. In the last three matches out of four, the mark of 210 points was not overcome. Everything goes to the fact that this time the basketball players will not be able to please the fans with a spectacular and attacking game.

Our prediction - total under 215.5 points with overtime for 1.74.
