Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Miami Heat Prediction

The Miami Heat vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers will duel things out from Cleveland, Ohio, on Tuesday night for a much anticipated Eastern Conference matchup. Both of these teams appear to be healthy for tonight’s game which has been a rare sight this season. Cleveland has been led by a strong effort from star guard Donavan Mitchell. Mitchell has been outstanding for the Cavs, leading them in scoring and leading them to one of the best records in the East.

The Cavs are ten games over .500, and they feel as if they can make a legitimate run this season with Mitchell at the helm. The role players for Cleveland have also really stepped up their game and have given them opportunities to win a lot of games. Cleveland has been great at home, in particular, going 21-5 on their home floor.

Miami, meanwhile, enters five games over the .500 mark. Miami is a middle-of-the-pack team in the East, where they can be beaten in the paint. Bam Adebayo is an outstanding defender, but the second he comes off the court, they take a big step back, and they have struggled to stop teams from scoring in the paint. Depth has been a bit of an issue for the Heat this year. Jimmy Butler has once again been the leader of this team and continues to lead them to a strong record this season. The Heat feel that they are better than their record indicates, and they are confident they can get on a run sooner than later. 

I am sipping on some juice tonight, and I am backing the Cavs on the Moneyline. I love this spot for the Cavs on their home floor tonight, but Miami tends to play close games. I trust that the Cavs match up very well and will be able to exploit some weaknesses of the Heat in the paint tonight. Cleveland has skilled bigs and guards who are strong drivers. This matchup heavily favors Cleveland tonight, and they stay hot on their home floor.
