As they get deeper into the season and closer to the playoffs, the Cavaliers keep answering questions about their staying power in the Eastern Conference. Cleveland has won five of six, is seeing Darius Garland hit double-digit assists in his sleep and boasts the odds-on Rookie of the Year in Evan Mobley. The Knicks are just trying to get back to an even record, something that has plagued them all season. R.J. Barrett is coming off one of his best games all season, and Julius Randle seemed to regain his scoring touch, but injuries still haunt the Knicks. Kemba Walker and Mitchell Robinson are both questionable tonight. The Cavaliers will be without Lauri Markkanen but are hoping Rajon Rondo will play.

Cavaliers -6 (-110, DraftKings)
There are two ways to go with this game and both favor Cleveland. OddsShopper shows low point projections for both Barrett and Randle. That is too much pressure on Evan Fournier, especially without Walker. The Cavaliers are seeing such a balanced attack from multiple players capable of leading the team on any given night. Jarrett Allen and Kevin Love make it difficult for the Knicks up front, and New York will not be able to match the Cavaliers from 3. The other play was the under, but it is just north of 200 points and Cleveland will not bomb enough 3’s to get over that number.
R.J. Barrett Under 19.5 Points (-110, DraftKings)
One thing that stands out with OddsShopper over other sites that provide odds is Awesemo’s free projection. This bet has a 65% chance of hitting, as Barrett is only projected for 16.9 points. The Cavaliers have struggled at times against the wing, but there is still a low point total for the game and some regression from his last game against a worse opponent. The expected ROI on this from OddsShopper is 24% and requires only the standard -110 for this play. Do not sweat whether Walker or Robinson play tonight; it is not going to impact this prop either way.
Darius Garland 10+ Assists (+118, FanDuel)
This young man is carving up defenses with a freshly sharpened butcher’s knife. Garland is not just going over his prop totals — he is smashing them with double-digit assist nights in four straight and six of his last seven. OddsShopper shows us laying -145 to go over 8.5 assists as the best return, so why not increase the return with a highly probable leap? Like in seven straight games, Garland is much more likely to hit 10-plus than land on nine assists.

Julius Randle Under 19.5 Points (-122, FanDuel)
Much like the Barrett points prop, this one will not be impacted by which Knicks play tonight in Cleveland. OddsShopper has a 65% chance of Randle staying under his point total, with a 17% expected ROI on the bet. Awesemo’s free projection shows Randle sitting at 17 points, which means nearly a full possession, 2.5 points, as a gap. Randle has recently seen an uptick in scoring but still struggles against better frontcourts. Cleveland will be a force for Randle as he should struggle the most out of any Knicks player tonight. This is a heavy fade on Randle as he should regress against a better defense.
Evan Fournier 3+ 3’s (-102, FanDuel)
This is a great return on one of the most realistic player outcomes for New York. Fournier is taking 3’s at a high enough clip where the volume alone justifies the bet. He has at least five attempts in five straight games, with three of those games above eight attempts. He has had at least six attempts in three straight games, going over this number in two of them. He should be able to take advantage of shot opportunities, especially with both Randle and Barrett struggling to score. Normally this play is closer to a -115 to -120.
