Free Best NBA bets today expert player props picks and parlays Cavs vs. Nets Play-In Tournament game

Less than a week ago these two teams met to settle the seventh seed ahead of the NBA Play-In games. The 11-point Nets victory last Friday secured the tiebreaker for Brooklyn, who enters this game as the seven seed in the Eastern Conference. More importantly, it is the start of any run for Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, despite their slow start and loss of a third star via trade. Durant struggled to get to 20 points in their season finale against the Pacers but finished with a triple-double and watched Irving torch Indiana for 35 points. The only injury of note would be Seth Curry dealing with an ankle injury, but he is expected on the floor tonight.

The Cavaliers were just here, although they are certainly hoping for a different ending this time around. Darius Garland will have the difficult matchup against Irving but will have Evan Mobley back in the fold and will continue to see big games from Lauri Markkanen. The Cavs closed out with a win over the Bucks but are still missing Jarrett Allen with a finger injury. Kevin Love had another big night off the bench shooting from deep, as Cleveland hopes to win tonight and advance to face Boston next week.

Nets -5.5 First Half Spread: -110 (DraftKings)

This should play out exactly like the first half bet on last Friday’s game. Brooklyn has the top-heavy firepower to establish a lead, but Cleveland has enough shooting to climb back, especially taking advantage of a thin Nets team. Curry, Irving, Durant and a contribution from Patty Mills off the bench will do enough damage in the first half to create a two-possession lead. The Nets are tough to trust holding these leads against better teams and OddsShopper allows a favorable return on a significantly lower number than the nine-point spread on the game. Brooklyn should eventually move on and win this game, but asking them to blow out the Cavs in two straight meetings is asking a lot. Irving and Durant understand there is a long road ahead of them with such an underachieving regular season, so expect some compensation to try to win the game in the first half, at the very least the first quarter.

Kevin Love Over 6.5 Rebounds: -128 (BetMGM)

This is a huge play on OddsShopper combined with Awesemo’s free projection and looking at the extended minutes from Love off the bench. Awesemo projects Love to finish with 8.4 rebounds on the night, nearly two full boards higher than the book’s total. OddsShopper found only -128 on the play, which factors in the 31% xROI if the prop hits. OddsShopper gives that a 74% chance of hitting. Love should see plenty of action on the floor and has shown he is not just a 3-point shooter, he can still go out and grab a couple of rebounds.

Evan Mobley Under 16.5 Points: -118 (FanDuel)

OddsShopper does not expect a big night for the odds-on favorite to win Rookie of the Year. Neither does Awesemo. Mobley is only projected for 14 points, a significant drop from the book’s total. OddsShopper gives this a 66% chance of hitting the prop, along with a 22% xROI. The play factors in the reduced scoring opportunities for Mobley going up against the Nets front court, plus there has not been a major bump in production for him despite not having Allen on the floor. When Allen does return, it should only hurt Mobley’s scoring output.

Bruce Brown Over 2.5 Assists: -154 (BetMGM)

Bruce Brown has been a key third contributor throughout the final stretch of the regular season, and OddsShopper sees no reason why that changes tonight. Awesemo projects Brown to finish with 3.5 assists, combined with a 67% chance of hitting this prop. The xROI on OddsShopper comes back at an 11% xROI, but it is a strong projection that puts this prop into the playable category. Brown went over this number in each of his final five regular season games.
