Cleveland Cavaliers at New York Knicks Overview

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers enter off a 123-110 loss at home when they hosted the visiting Portland Trailblazers on Monday. Cleveland failed to come in under the number when they closed as a 9.5-point underdog.

New York Knicks

The Knicks also enter into this contest on the heels of another successful upset bid when they shocked the visiting Orlando Magic on Tuesday. Closing as a 7.5-point underdog, the Knicks defeated the Magic by a score of 108-103.

Reasons To Back Cleveland

It was only 17 days ago that the Cavaliers hosted the Knicks and managed to defeat them by a pivotal three-pointer. Cleveland has the blueprint to beat this team, and that gives them an intangible to work in their favor. Furthermore, another key advantage Cleveland holds is in the turnover department which is instrumental in a game that is forecasted to be settled by a basket where every possession counts. Moreover, Cleveland has also had an extra day to prepare for this game which makes them the more rested team.

Reasons To Avoid New York

New York’s back-to-back upsets of San Antonio and Orlando has sparked an overreaction from the general public. This is evident in 73% of the consensus liking the Knicks here, something that we have not seen all too often this season and we can't help but notice the timing of it all with respect to what they have pulled off as of recent. Preceding events set up New York backers here for a robust potential let-down, and we will have no part of that.

Cavaliers at Knicks Prediction 02/28/2019

This is the first time the Knicks are the chalk in 2019. This is a direct by-product of the Knicks finding a groove at the worst time imaginable as many expected them to be tanking to get the number one pick in the draft lottery. Due to their present penchant for pulling upsets, Knicks takers find themselves in a zig-zag here which sets up the Cavaliers to be a true value play. New York will get back to what it has been doing all season long now that they are no longer the hunter but the hunted. Cavs pull the upset here if you want to call it that.
