Milwaukee Bucks Travel to Cleveland to Face the Cavaliers
Although it isn’t the final game of the night, it could be one of the most entertaining. The Milwaukee Bucks, ranking third in the Eastern Conference, head to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers.
Milwaukee could rest a few players, or they could try to make a jump past the Celtics for better positioning. We’ll have to wait and see who’s in when the lineups come out on Sunday.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are likely to play all of their starters in this game. Cleveland sits at the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference, following closely behind the Bulls. If Cleveland can get a win here, they could move up a few spots.
Cleveland has taken a few losses lately; ending the season with a win could be exactly what they need. So, who should you take at the sportsbook?

Milwaukee Bucks at Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Prediction
The Bucks have been fairly lackluster against the spread this season. In their last game against the Cavaliers, they lost by quite a large margin. Milwaukee was also on the road in that game but was favored by four points.
The Cavaliers’ defense was the superstar in that game, holding the Bucks to just 99 points. By the end of the game, the Cavaliers beat the Bucks, 115-99.
If Milwaukee decides to rest a few players, we could see this outcome happening again. The Cavaliers’ defense is among the best in the NBA and is 24-16 at home this season.
We don’t see the Cavaliers resting anyone either since they have the chance to improve their standings. Because of this, we’ll take Cleveland to win this game at home and cover the spread.
As far as the total goes in this game, there are a few things to remember. One, the Cavaliers are 35-43-2 against the total this year.
The second is that in the last three meetings between these two, the total has gone under twice. If the total is set anywhere near 220.5 and above, take the under.
