Cleveland Cavaliers vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Preview

The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently 25-18, as they’ve won three straight games.

The Oklahoma City Thunder, on the other hand, are 14-27, as they’ve lost seven of their last ten games.

This should be a fun one!

Betting Odds & Lines

The spread for Sunday night is set at CLE -4.5. The over/under is sitting at 210 points.

Darius Garland Coming Off Huge Performance

Darius Garland is coming off a 32 point performance in their win over the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night, as he shot 11-of-25 from the field. He also dished out eight assists.

Garland has been sensational for the Cavs all season long, garnering attention from national media members and fellow players around the league. Stephen Curry even declared before the season even started that Garland will be a superstar in this league.

Jarrett Allen Dominant on Glass

Jarrett Allen was dominant on the glass in the Cavs’ win over the Spurs, as he pulled down 16 rebounds. Allen also put up 17 points, as he shot 7-of-11 from the field.

Allen is as reliable as they come on both ends of the floor, especially on offense, as he knows exactly which spots to go to and how to maximize his skillset in real-time to do what’s best for the team, whether it be identifying a good post up opportunity or getting himself open off the pick-and-roll inside for an easy dunk or layup.

Evan Mobley Continues to Dazzle

Evan Mobley has been everything the Cavs wanted with their third overall pick and more, as he’s coming off a 15 point, six rebound, and three assist performance in his last game.

In his last ten games, Mobley has averaged 17.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game. Mobley is in serious consideration for Rookie of the Year, as there should be a strong argument for him to get it since his contributions are going towards a winning team.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Coming in Hot

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has put up over 30 points in each of his last two games, as he’s averaging 60 percent shooting from the floor during that timespan.

Additionally, he’s been running the show as the primary playmaker, as he’s averaging 8.5 assists per game in those last two games.

SGA is one of the better young guards this league has to offer. He’d probably get more attention if he played on a better or big market team.

Cavs Win

This game should provide the Cavs another easy opportunity to steal a win, as they’ve won four of their last five games, with their only loss coming against one of the top teams in the league in the Golden State Warriors.

The Cavs have their eyes on their first playoff appearance since 2018, and the way for them to get there is to continue to win the games they should be winning since they can’t count on beating teams above them just yet.

Expect them to win and cover the spread.
