Free ATS Pick:
The Nets appeared to have cooled out a bit losing two straight. Tonight they face a Cavalier team that has won 3 in a row and is still in the playoff equation. The Knicks did beat Cleveland by 7 as the host back on January 4th, but despite going 6-3 they have only exceeded tonight’s posted line of 9 in two of their last 9 games. The schedule makers didn’t do the Cavs any favors with this their 3rd in 4 nights with their depleted roster, but they did have yesterday off and our play.
Take the Cleveland Cavaliers +9.
