OVER Bettors Love Seeing Cavs and Bucks Collide

A pair of superstars leading the way for their Eastern Conference clubs will collide on the hardwood Friday, as LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers prepare to do battle with Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in Wisconsin.

Xbet opened the Bucks as 2.5-point home underdogs with a total of 209.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games vs divisional opponents.
  • The Cavaliers are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games on the road.
  • The Bucks are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games at home.

Antetokounmpo impressed in his 2017-18 debut, collecting 37 points on 13-of-22 shooting and adding 13 rebounds, three assists and three steals in a 108-100 win over the Boston Celtics. The Bucks bowed out of the first round of the playoffs a year ago and haven’t advanced past the Eastern Conference quarterfinals since 2000-01, but they’ll very likely get further this season.

The Cavs have eight new players on a team that went to the NBA Finals in each of the last three years, but point guard Derrick Rose was the best of the new recruits in Tuesday’s opening win over the Boston Celtics. Rose finished the game with 14 points and four rebounds in 31 minutes of action while filling in for the injured Isaiah Thomas.

James came one assist shy of notching a triple-double thanks to a 29-point, 16-rebound, nine-assist effort in the triumph over Boston.

OVER bettors love seeing these teams get together due to their penchant for participating in high-scoring affairs. In the previous 10 matchups between the clubs, the OVER is 8-2.
