Cleveland Cavaliers Player Stats
The 2020-21 season was another middling step in the rebuild for the Cleveland Cavaliers, as they won just 22 games en route to another season in the lottery. The Cavs did no favors to bettors who backed them throughout the season, going an abysmal 26-46 against-the-spread (ATS), the worst mark in the league.
With the young backcourt of Collin Sexton and Darius Garland continuing to put up stats and gaining experience, there’s still a sense that something is building in Cleveland. See all the Cavaliers odds, as well as their win totals, player props, future bets, and all the gambling information you need to know.
Cleveland Cavaliers Point Spreads
As mentioned previously, the Cleveland Cavaliers were the worst team in the league against-the-spread last year. The point spread is a margin of victory determined by bookmakers that the favored team has to overcome for a bet on them to win. Favored teams are “giving points,” indicated with a minus sign (-), whereas the underdog is always “plus the points,” indicated with a plus sign.
Use the example below to understand further:
- Detroit Pistons (+3.5)
- Cleveland Cavaliers (-3.5)
In the example above, the Cavaliers are 3.5-point favorites, meaning that bets on them against-the-spread would win only if Cleveland won by four points or more. The Pistons, on the other hand, are 3.5-point underdogs, so tickets on them would cash if Detroit won the game or lost by only one, two, or three points.
Cleveland Cavaliers Moneylines
If betting on a point spread seems a little tough, moneylines are straightforward bets on who will win the game, regardless of the margin. Just as with point spreads, the favored team is tagged with a minus sign (-), while the underdog is given a plus sign (+).
Let’s revisit our example from earlier:
- Detroit Pistons +150
- Cleveland Cavaliers -180
The numbers next to those +/- signs are the odds expressed in American format. As -180 favorites, a bet on the Cavaliers would require risking $180 to win $100. As +150 underdogs, betting $100 on the Pistons would net $150 in the case of a Detroit victory.
Cleveland Cavaliers Over/Unders
Bets on the Cleveland Cavaliers don’t necessarily need to be tied to the winner of the game: Over/unders, also known as bets on the total, are wagers on the combined number of points scored between the two teams. Bookmakers hang a number, called the total, and bettors are invited to bet over or under that number. If the total of a Pistons-Cavaliers game was 220, over bettors would need a final score that adds up to 221 or more points, whereas under bettors would be rooting for a final score that summed to 219 or fewer points. If the score landed right on the total of 220, all wagers would be refunded, and the bet would push.
Cleveland Cavaliers Props
Bets that don’t fall neatly into any of the above buckets are often categorized as prop bets. These bets can differ greatly from book to book, but the most common prop bets are player props. These are often bets on a player’s final stat line, such as betting over/under a point total for a game, or betting that Darius Garland will record a double-double. But still others are discrete questions answered during the course of the game, like “who will win the race to 20 points?” and “who will record the first basket scored?” Different props are offered on different books, so make sure to read our sportsbook reviews to find the right bet for you.
Maybe you think the SexLand backcourt will bring the Cavaliers success sooner rather than later; in that case, your bet would likely be a future. Futures bets are bets on events that won’t take place until far in the future, such as betting a team’s season-long win total or betting the Cavaliers to make the playoffs.
