Four overs to consider in tonight’s Nets vs. Cavs play-in game (7:00 p.m. ET on TNT)

From preseason favorites to play-in contenders, the Nets have had one helluva ride this year… buuuut now it’s their time! Post-James Harden trade, Brooklyn totaled 123.6 points per 100 possessions (!!) with Durant and Irving on the floor 

The Cavaliers have slowed down since the injury bug hit, but factoring in the Nets’ poor No. 20-ranked defense and the likely absence of Cleveland defensive anchor center Jarrett Allen, this game could be a high-scoring, high-stats affair on both sides.

Kevin Durant O 31.5 PTS -120 (bet $120 to win $100)

Durant is about to play BIG MINUTES and feast on a defense missing its primary rim protector in Allen. On the season, Durant averaged 29.9 points per game, scoring at least 30 points in three of his last five, including DROPPIN’ 36 in the last contest vs. Cleveland.

Kyrie Irving O 3.5 3s +106 (bet $100 to win $106)

Not as in love with this one, but THE NETS ARE GONNA EAT!! Irving has shot well from deep at 41.8% this season and we have a sneaky suspicion he’s going to have a hot hand against the Cavs. Irving’s hit at least three 3s in three out of the last five games 

Evan Mobley O 9.5 RBS -104 (bet $104 to win $100)

Mobley’s been crashing the boards like a BOSS this season, averaging 8.3 rebounds. I love him to dominate the glass in his third game back from an ankle injury.

arius Garland O 8.5 AST -128 (bet $128 to win $100)

Garland is DISHIN’ this season, averaging 8.6 assists per game. He knows what needs to be done without Allen on the floor, and has hit the over on assists in three of his last five contests.
