Cavaliers game line basics
When it comes to betting on the Cavaliers or any other NBA team, you’re going to be presented with odds listings that look similar to this on betting apps, such as the BetMGM Sportsbook app or DraftKings mobile app:
|Milwaukee Bucks||-150||-3.5 (-110)||Over 210.5 (-110)|
|Cleveland Cavaliers||+140||+3.5 (-110)||Under 215.5 (-110)|
The standard set of Bucks/Cavaliers game lines above make Milwaukee slight favorites, The Cavaliers moneyline odds have them as +140 underdogs, which means betting $100 to win $140, plus your bet back if the Cavs win outright. The flipside of that is the Bucks as -150 moneyline favorites, which means betting $150 to win $100, plus your bet back if the Bucks win outright.
The Cavs are also +3.5 spread underdogs, which means you can bet on Cleveland winning the game outright or losing by three points or less. You can also bet on the Bucks winning by four or more. Both spread bets are at -110 odds, which means betting $110 to win $100, plus your bet back.
Finally, there’s a 210.5 totals line. The under wins if the final score adds up to 210 or less and the over wins if it adds up to 211 or more. Both bets are also at -110 odds, which means betting $110 to win $100, plus your bet back.
Cavaliers Championship, Eastern Conference futures odds
Cavaliers futures allow you to bet on the Cavaliers’ season. That might mean winning more or less than a specific number of games, winning the Eastern Conference Championship, or even the NBA Finals.
Most futures bets are available throughout the year at odds that change with the team’s chances. That often means the earlier the bet, the better the odds. Once a team proves itself a true contender for the NBA title, the odds contract significantly.
The Cavaliers might have opened at +5000 odds to win the NBA Finals but late in the season, with the team contending for a playoff spot, the odds would be closer to +2000. Even a team like the NBA Champion Bucks might have opened at +1500 with the odds dropping to +500 or less as the playoffs neared.
Cavaliers live betting odds
Once Ohio legalizes and regulates sports betting, you’ll be able bet on live Cavaliers games while you watch. It is mostly betting on the same sports lines available before the game, but new betting opportunities also present themselves with in-play betting.
Live odds are always changing and changing fast, so sportsbook apps are the best way for you to keep up with the latest Cavaliers betting odds.
Brief Cavaliers history
The Cleveland Cavaliers joined the NBA as an expansion team in 1970. They went from the Cleveland Arena to the Richfield Coliseum and moved into their current home at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in downtown Cleveland in 1994. Quicken Loans businessman and investor Dan Gilbert bought the team in 2005 and remains the owner.
The Cavaliers were perennial playoff contenders in the 1980s and 1990s, led by stars Mark Price and Brad Daugherty. However, the team fell on hard times as the 2000s began. The Cavs were able to get local Ohio high-school star LeBron James with the first pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, changing the course of the franchise forever.
They selected James. Behind James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the Cavaliers again became a regular playoff contender by 2005. The Cavs made the franchise’s first NBA Finals appearance in 2007 but failed to get back there again before James made the free-agent decision to sign with the Miami Heat in 2010. Hard times came to Cleveland again before they could get young star Kyrie Irving in the 2011 draft.
James returned in 2014 and alongside Irving led the Cavs to four straight NBA Finals appearances, including the team’s first NBA Championship in 2016.
