Free Point Spread Pick:
The Cavaliers lost star guard Kyrie Irving for a couple of weeks and without him in the lineup any chance to be competitive tonight against the Heat. It’s a big line but Miami should be able to light up the scoreboard against Cleveland’s porous unit with no answer from the home team.
Take the Miami Heat -9.
