NBA Free Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers @ Brooklyn Nets March 6

NBA Free Pick Linebacker Cleveland Cavaliers vs Brooklyn Nets

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Brooklyn Nets (BKN -9.5, O/U 228)

The Brooklyn Nets will play host to Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight. Brooklyn ended a three-game losing streak with a 39-point drumming of Dallas on Monday and now welcomes a Cavs team that is 6-24 on the road this season. Vegas opened the line for tonight’s game at BKN -8.5, and it’s since moved to -9.5. The Linebacker projects the Nets will cover the spread, giving us a solid play on Brooklyn. Our model suggests a wager of $90 on BKN -9.5 for a $100 average bettor.

The Linebacker’s NBA model has gone 435-387 (52.9%) ATS and 461-413 (52.7%) on OVER/UNDERs this season, producing $3,172 in profit for $100 average bettors. Head to www.thelinebacker.com/pricing to start your free trial today and get every NBA pick!

Why will Brooklyn cover the spread?

  • The Cavs have been one of the worst road teams in the NBA. Not only is their 6-24 (.200 win percentage) record away from Cleveland the third-worst in the NBA, but their -11.5 point differential is second-worst, ahead of only Phoenix.
  • Cleveland’s 44 percent field-goal shooting on the road is fifth-worst in the NBA.
  • Cleveland’s 102.6 points per game on the road ranks second-worst in the NBA.
  • The Nets welcomed Spencer Dinwiddie back to their lineup this past weekend. Dinwiddie is Brooklyn’s second-leading scorer and assist man, averaging 17.0 points and 5.0 assists per game.

How to bet the total in Cavaliers @ Nets:

The Linebacker projects a final score of 118.4 - 105.2 in favor of the Nets. With a projected total of 223.6 and an OVER/UNDER of 228, we have a slight play on the UNDER in this one. Our model suggests a wager of $47 on UNDER 228 for a $100 average bettor.
