Colin Sexton is averaging 19.6 points and 2.5 assists while Kevin Love is averaging 17.5 points and 9.7 rebounds.

The Knicks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Cavaliers are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Monday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 7-2 in Knicks last 9 overall. The over is 10-1 in Cavaliers last 11 home games. The under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings in Cleveland.
The New York Knicks are playing better basketball as of late and are actually a profitable 26-24 ATS on the season. The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost 10 of their last 11 games and haven't won a home game since a couple days before Christmas. This is probably a spot where we should just take the point and the better team, but if the Cavs can't win this game at home, they're probably never winning again. In a toss up game between two teams going nowhere fast, give me the team with the home edge.
