    Madison Square Garden hosts a matinee matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New York Knicks at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday. New York is favored by one point at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 219 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page). Before making any Cavaliers vs. Knicks picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

    The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit for $100 players on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 24 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 83-51 roll on all top-rated NBA picks, returning over $2,600. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.

    The model knows the Cavaliers boast a tremendous defense. Cleveland is allowing 1.08 points per possession this season, and the Cavaliers allow the fewest free throw attempts per game in the NBA. The Cavaliers yield fewer than 13 second-chance points per game, a top-five mark, and Cleveland is in the top ten of the league in field goal percentage allowed and two-point percentage allowed. New York is a below-average offensive team, ranking at the bottom of the league in assists and points in the paint.

    The model also knows the Knicks are also above-average on defense. New York is elite in preventing second-chance points, giving up only 12.4 per game, and the Knicks are allowing only 11.4 fast break points per game. The Knicks are in the top five of the NBA in points allowed in the paint, yielding only 43.6 per game, and New York is above-average in assists allowed, three-point defense, and field goal percentage allowed.

    Now, it has set its sights on Cavaliers vs. Knicks. We can tell you the model is leaning under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.

    Who wins Cavaliers vs. Knicks? And which side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations? ... Join SportsLine right now to find out which side of the Cavaliers vs. Knicks spread you should be all over Saturday, all from the model on a roll on NBA picks!
