OVER the Hot Bet When the Bucks & Cavs Collide

Championship hangovers are a real thing in professional sports, but the Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t shown any signs of it in 2016-17. The Cavs will look to notch their fifth win in a row when they visit the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 3-0 SU in their last three games against the Bucks.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Cavaliers' last six games against the Bucks.
  • The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against their division.

Sportsbooks opened the wine and gold as 7.5-point favorites with an OVER/UNDER of 210.5.

Cleveland’s offense is always run through LeBron James, and the superstar posted his 45th career triple-double on the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday with 26 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds. James is averaging 23.6 points, 9.7 assists and 8.4 rebounds on the year.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the few players in the league who can combat James offensively and defensively. The Greek Freak leads his team in scoring (22 points) and rebounding (8.3) while ranking second in assists (six).

The Bucks would be wise to let J.R. Smith fire at will tonight, as the shooting guard is in a major slump right now. Smith is 1-for-22 from the field in the last two games, including 1-for-17 from beyond the arc.
