Stephen Nover Free NBA Sunday Play

On March 14, 2021, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Cavaliers at Hawks Under 222 1/2  The Cavaliers are slightly below average defensively ranking 17th in points allowed per game at 112.2. Cleveland’s major problem is scoring. The Cavaliers are the lowest-scoring team in the NBA. They also rank last in offensive efficiency and play at a slow pace.   No wonder the Under has cashed […]

By Stephen Nover Hornets plus 2 at Cavaliers I must admit, watching a Hornets-Cavaliers matchup wasn’t on my New Year’s resolution list. Peeling potatoes might be more enjoyable than viewing this game. Handicapping-wise, though, I believe there’s money to be made backing the underdog Hornets and not just because the Cavaliers are 0-3 ATS when laying […]
