Brooklyn Nets Vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Play-In Betting Odds And Sportsbook Bonuses

The Brooklyn Nets will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in Tuesday’s first play-in game for the Eastern Conference playoffs, and the sports betting apps are ready. Most sportsbooks have the No. 7 seed Nets favored by 8.5 points over the No. 8 seed Cavaliers.

In the other Eastern Conference play-in game, the No. 9 Atlanta Hawks will take on the No. 10 Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday.

If the Nets win against the Cavaliers, they’ll automatically make it to the playoffs and face the No. 2 seed Boston Celtics in the playoff opener on Sunday. If they lose to the Cavs, they’ll play the winner of the Hawks-Hornets game on Friday. The winner of that second play-in game will also get a spot in the playoffs.

We like the odds for the Nets, especially after they beat the Cavaliers 118-107 on Friday. However, the Cavs’ loss might give them the hunger they need to pull out a win in Tuesday’s rematch. Keep an eye out.

Play-In Scenarios

If the Nets win as expected, they’ll match up against the No. 2 seed Boston Celtics on Sunday.

The Nets are 1-3 against the Celtics this season, but the Nets have been riddled with injuries and other issues that kept their biggest stars out of a lot of regular-season games. 

Now that the Nets have Durant, Kyrie Irving, and possibly Ben Simmons back in play, the matchups should look a lot better for Brooklyn.

Knock on wood and throw a little salt over your shoulder. If the Nets lose, what happens next? 

The loser of the Nets-Cavs game will play a second play-in game on Friday, April 15. They’ll face off against the Hawks or the Hornets for the No. 8 seed spot in the playoffs. 

The Hawks are favored to win against the Hornets by -4.5 points. However, this season, the Nets have fared better against the Hawks than the Hornets, with a 2-1 record against Atlanta and a 1-2 record against Charlotte.
