Cleveland Cavaliers Odds, Futures & Betting Predictions
Tough times continue for the post-LeBron Cleveland Cavaliers, who have failed to top 22 wins in the three seasons since James left for the Los Angeles Lakers. It’s going to be ugly again in 2022 for Cleveland, but there’s a sense of optimism after a few solid Lottery picks in a row combining with a nice young veteran core.
The Cavs will again be Lottery-bound in 2022, but check back in a few years down the road and maybe we’ll feel better about their NBA futures odds.
Cavaliers Win-Total Betting
A core of Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley isn’t going to make any Cavs fan forget about 2016, but this is a really nice and complete group. Even Isaac Okoro on the wing is nothing to slouch at.
We love how this group ended the second half of last season — and then added an elite athlete in Mobley. Thirty wins isn’t out of the question for this group. We like them to be a popular play when it comes to daily NBA picks.
Cavaliers Division Odds
The Line: +15000 with TwinSpires Sportsbook
Let’s not spend too much time here. The Milwaukee Bucks are -1250 favorites at betting sites to be crowned winners in the Central, and that’s exactly what’s going to happen. Those NBA odds are appropriate, as wild as they seem. There’s the slightest outside shot that the Pacers or Bulls could give them a run for their money if everything falls into place (and Giannis decides to retire), but it won’t be the Cavs.
The Bet: Not happenin’. Avoid these odds at TwinSpires Sportsbook.
Cavaliers Conference Odds
There once was a time when the Cavaliers were running through the Eastern Conference with no problem. The Cavs were the golden child of NBA betting. LeBron James is no longer here, and nothing will be running through Cleveland for quite some time. An absolute best-case scenario for the Cavaliers is a spot in the play-in tournament. That doesn’t exactly scream Eastern Conference contender.
The Bet: Stay clear of these odds at WynnBET.

Cavaliers NBA Title Odds
The Cavaliers’ title win in 2016 was unforgettable and one of the most historic wins in the history of the sport. And yet, it would be 1000x more improbable if the 2022 Cavaliers were somehow to win it all. Bask in that 2016 glory, Cavs fans. It’s going to be a while before there are meaningful games played in Cleveland in June.

The Line: Evan Mobley to win Rookie of the Year,
No big man has won Rookie of the Year since Karl Towns in 2016 — but there also hasn’t been a big man talent like Towns until now. Evan Mobley is elite defensively, will be an instant impact rim-runner from Day 1, and has a pair of solid guards in Sexton and Garland to feed him the rock.
It’s rare to see a rookie impact the game on both ends, but that’s what Mobley can bring to the table. His rare skillset could play well turning heads in his first season.
