This game will be played at Madison Square Garden at 7:30 PM ET on Tuesday, January 24, 2023.
Why Bet The Cavaliers:
✅ The Knicks are playing very poorly of late, having lost four games in a row. They have a losing record at home this year at 11-13, and their struggles at Madison Square Garden will continue on Tuesday night.
✅ From a matchup standpoint, this is a terrible time for the Knicks to be without Mitchell Robinson. Robinson is out due to a thumb injury, which will make things a lot easier for the duo of Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen on the interior for the Cavs.
✅ Donovan Mitchell is expected to play in this contest after missing a couple of games for the Cavaliers. That will help the Cavs gain a further advantage over New York.

The Cleveland Cavaliers enter Tuesday night having won their last game over the Milwaukee Bucks. Cleveland benefited from both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton missing out on that game due to injuries. Here, the Cavs will look to take advantage of another significant injury as they attempt to get a second straight victory.
With the Knicks missing starting center Mitchell Robinson for this game, the Cavs should be able to pound away at the Knicks in the paint. Jarrett Allen will have a distinct physical edge over Isaiah Hartenstein, and both Cavs bigs should be crafty enough to draw fouls against Jericho Sims when he is on the floor.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks are have lost four games in a row of late, and have dropped out of the top-six in the Eastern Conference standings. Their most recent loss came against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, with the Knicks dropping the final game of their season series with their Atlantic Division rivals. Here, the Knicks will hope to get back on the right side of a game at home to stop the proverbial bleeding.
For New York, the play of Julius Randle will be even more important than usual in this contest. Randle’s physicality will be a must to push back against the likes of Evan Mobley at the four spot, and Randle’s rebounding will need to be up to his typically elite standard to help make up for the lack of Mitchell Robinson patrolling the paint.
