On average, our computer simulation work forecasts a final score of 107-96, Cleveland, when the defending champs host the New York Knicks to kick off the new NBA season. this afternoon. Despite a mean expected margin that exceeds the spread, one of the simulation routines in our lineup calls for the Knicks to beat the number so we are unwilling to take a flier on the road dogs. However, our indicators are in sync in calling for a payday for UNDER 206, giving us greater comfort with this selection.
The Knicks O/U was 34-47-1 overall last year, 13-20 as road dogs and 25-40-1 versus non-division opposition. The Cavaliers O/U finished 50-51-2 last season, and while Cleveland was modestly disposed toward the over from the position of home favorite (26-23-1), the Cavs were 38-43-2 against competition outside the Eastern Conference's Central Division. Further, the UNDER has collected in each of the last seven head-to-head meetings between these teams.
