NBA Free Pick | Knicks at Cavaliers

Wow where do I even begin with talking about this game? These aren’t exactly two teams who have been playing well this season. Heck, both of these franchises will also be competing in the offseason. They will be competing to see who wins the ping pong ball lottery and gets the top pick in the draft. Which, by the way, must be Zion Williamson! No possible way a franchise could pass on him right? More on that some other time.

But I like the under in this matchup tonight. Here are the numbers I’m looking at to form my opinion. The under is 5-1 in the Knicks last 6 road games. It is also 13-3 in their last 16 games overall. Simple as that. They don’t score a lot of points and the under seems to always hit.

On Cleveland’s end, the under is 4-1 in Cavs last 5 home games. The under is also 5-2 in their last 7 games overall. They have not been dropping a lot of points. When you look at this game head to head too, the under has hit 7 of the last 8 times these teams have played in Cleveland. And that’s including when a guy named LeBron James used to play there.

That’s right, even when he played for the Cavs, these two teams always seemed to go under. We have NBA Scores and Odds for every game in the Association.

Simply put, they just aren’t good basketball teams. They are not capable of filling up a scoreboard and I expect both teams to seriously struggle offensively. I’d expect a game in the mid 90s. I will not be surprised one bit if neither team cracks a hundred points. Which is crazy to think about in today’s league. My overall point is that these two teams are bad, and the numbers show the under is the correct play.
