The Cavaliers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Heat are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 14-5 in Cavaliers last 19 overall. The over is 10-3 in Heat last 13 overall. The Cavaliers are 1-12 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Miami and 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

The Miami Heat are comfortably the better team here and have been very tough at home, but they're dealing with injuries to Jimmy and Herro, so I'm not thrilled to back them with big chalk. The Cleveland Cavaliers have been a feisty bunch that continues to compete and play hard, and they're only losing by an average of 0.8 points in the underdog role. This is a lot of points. Give me the Cavs and free buckets, especially if the Heat are still undermanned.
