Score: 84 - 94
Point Spread: -5½/-110 Cleveland
*3 Star NBA Opening Night Play* The Cleveland Cavs have one of the best young players in the NBA in Kyrie Irving. Irving showed how awesome he can be last year. Anderson Varejao is healthy and that will help this team a lot. In addition, I expect Tristan Thompson to be quite a bit better this year. Washington is an improved team, but they'll be without John Wall and Nene in this game. Wall is really the guy who gets everything going offensively for the team, and the Cavs will have a major point guard advantage without Wall in the game. Cleveland should have a decent home court advantage on opening night. I like the value on the home team here mainly due to the injury situation for Washington. Take the Cavs.
