Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Prediction, point spread, odds, over/under, betting picks

After a tough road trip, the Boston Celtics will return home to TD Garden to host the surging Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night. If you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

The game tips off at 7:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on NBC Sports Boston and Fox Sports Ohio.

The Celtics are on a three-game slide, and will be without star Jayson Tatum again on Sunday as he prepares to return from the health and safety protocol. Boston is still a considerable favorite against the Cavs despite Cleveland’s recent three-game winning streak, which included a series sweep of James Harden, Kyrie Irving and the Nets.

Payton Pritchard and Romeo Langford are also out for Boston, in addition to Tatum. Kevin Love, Matthew Dellavedova, Marques Bolden and Lamar Stevens are out for the Cavs.

Advice and prediction

The Cavaliers have been making moneyline bettors rich over their win streak, as they’ve won each game outright, while the Celtics have failed to cover their last three games. With Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince being worked into the Cavs rotation, it feels like bettors are undervaluing a surprisingly competitive Cleveland team, especially with Collin Sexton appearing to be making a leap as a player. Take the points, Cavs +6.5.

Prediction: Cavaliers 116, Celtics 114
