Basketball Betting – New York Knicks at Cleveland Cavaliers

January 31st, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting odds on Wednesday have the Cleveland Cavaliers heavily favored over the New York Knicks. The public loves to take LeBron James and the Cavaliers, especially when they are playing weaker teams.  Online NBA betting odds favor the Cavaliers but some of the trends do not.

Basketball history shows that the Knicks are 6-4 against the online NBA betting number in the last ten games against Cleveland even though they are 4-6 straight up.  At Cleveland, the Knicks are 1-3 straight up but they are 3-1 against the Basketball betting pointspread in the last four games.It is a tough basketball betting scheduling spot for the Knicks as they had to play last night against Portland in the Garden.  The back-to-back situation might come into play here on both the online NBA betting side and the total.

A big trend exists on the basketball total in this game.  The last five meetings between the two teams have all gone over the online NBA betting odds.  Last month the teams combined for 220 points in a 119-101 Cleveland win according to basketball betting results.  The Knicks have been an over team this year versus the basketball number, although not as much since they traded away Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph.  The Knicks are now led in scoring by Al Harrington who they picked up in the trade from Golden State according to basketball stats.  The Knicks are still scoring points though under head coach Mike D’Antoni, so expect another high total on the basketball odds board.

Cleveland is again led by LeBron James who is playing perhaps the best basketball of his career.  He has led the Cavaliers in scoring, rebounding and assists for most of the season according to basketball stats.  The Cavaliers have been among the league leaders in offense and defense this season and have been a very pleasant surprise versus the basketball betting odds.
