Yes, the long-awaited reunion is finally upon us. Cleveland fans have been banned from wearing obscene clothing or bringing offensive signs, but you better believe there will be a crazy atmosphere for Thursday's game between the Cavaliers and the Heat. We cut the hype and bring you odds and pick.

Cleveland was probably guilty of looking ahead to the much-anticipated return of LeBron James when they hosted the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

The Eastern Conference champs took advantage, building up a strong halftime lead and never looking back in a 106-87 win over the Cavaliers.

Anderson Varejao led Cleveland Cavaliers with 16 points and 12 rebounds while Anthony Parker and Mo Williams both chipped in 13 points in the defeat.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'd know that the Heat have been a massive disappointment thus far this season.

Miami had lost four of five before a 105-94 victory over the Washington Wizards.

LeBron was much more aggressive on offense, scoring a game-high 30 points while also picking up six rebounds and five assists. Dwyane Wade had 26 points, eight rebounds, six assists and four steals in the win.

Heat favored on road vs. Cleveland

You would be rolling in dough if you had decided to fade Miami Heat all season long.

The Heat have been miserable versus the spread, going 5-13 ATS overall and failing to cover in their last seven contests.

Cleveland hasn't fared any better as of late, covering in only two of their previous six games.

The Cavaliers (8-9 ATS) are 2-5 against the number in their last seven matchups with Eastern Conference teams and 1-7 ATS in their previous eight versus Southeast Division squads.

Regarding the total, the UNDER has gone 4-0-1 in the last five meetings in Cleveland between these two teams. Of course, you can always find more live NBA odds and trends over at

Cavs to keep Miami's struggles alive?

The Heat are 0-4 ATS in the team's last four road games and you know that Quicken Loans Arena will be absolutely rocking on Thursday.

With Miami's incredibly poor play versus the spread in mind, I think it's wise to keep riding that train until it derails.

Still, this is a tough game to cap as there are so many emotional factors here on both sides. Will the crowd get to LeBron and slow him down, or push him to have a career night? Knowing how important this game is, will the Cavaliers rise to the occasion or fail under pressure?

Cavaliers fan will be insanely hyped-up for this game and the Heat will need to get in a rhythm early and control play if they want to suck the energy out of the crowd.

Can they do it? We'll find out on Thursday, but I'd be slightly mad to back Miami in this spot given how poor they've been playing. I'll take the points and side with the home team.
