The Brooklyn Nets (10-5) play the Cleveland Cavaliers (9-6) twice in their next three games, the first of which happens on Wednesday. Three of the Nets five losses have come by at least 18 points, which was the difference on Tuesday against Golden State, 117-99. Cleveland played short-handed in its last two games — both against the Boston Celtics — the most recent of which resulted in 98-92 loss on Monday. In addition to other wellness problems, rookie Evan Mobley is now on the shelf for two-to-four weeks with an elbow sprain.

Brooklyn is favored by 9.5-points in the latest Nets vs. Cavaliers odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over-under is set at 208. Before entering any Cavaliers vs. Nets picks, you’ll want to see the NBA predictions from the advanced computer model at SportsLine.

What you need to know about the Nets

When Brooklyn goes down, it goes down hard. Tuesday’s 117-99 result against Warriors was rough, but the Nets also have lost by 23 points to both Chicago and Milwaukee earlier this season. Brooklyn was down 98-76 at the end of the third quarter to Golden State last night, which was just too much to recover from. Point guard James Harden (24 points) was the top scorer for Brooklyn.

Kevin Durant managed to score 19 points against his former team, but was an inefficient 6-for-19 from the field, with just five rebounds and three assists. Tuesday’s loss was the first of back-to-back games for Brooklyn. In games which the Nets played the night before, Brooklyn is 1-1, but averages nearly 10 fewer points than when it had a day off.

What you need to know about the Cavaliers

Cleveland’s hot start could be in danger after so many players have turned up inactive for various reasons. Kevin Love and Lauri Markkanen haven’t played since the start of November, Collin Sexton hurt his knee last week, and Jarrett Allen fell ill and missed the team’s last game. Mobley’s injury just adds to the personnel problems for Cleveland.

The Nets come into the game boasting the third most fouls drawn per game in the league at 20.1. But the Cavaliers rank first in the league when it comes to fouls per game, with only 15.9 on average. Brooklyn also has the highest 3-point percentage in the NBA, but Cleveland has been reasonably successful at defending shots from behind the arc, holding opponents to 33 percent from deep.

How to make Cavaliers vs. Nets picks

The model has simulated Nets vs. Cavaliers 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning under, and it’s also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in almost 70 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
