Placing bets on the Cleveland Cavaliers can be easy. They still don’t have a clear rival in the Eastern Conference, even with the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors surging. But the Cavaliers are also their own worst enemy, in that they often play down to the level of their opponents and have, recently, struggled to cover large spreads. That doesn’t mean they’re an unattractive betting play. To the contrary, if you know a lot about them, it’s easy to make an educated wager that can leave you feeling confident enought to keep betting on them. The trick is knowing when to bet, and what about them you should be betting on.

Betting on a game-to-game basis is difficult in general. It's even harder when perceived sure things, like the Cavaliers, are anything but sure things. Their daily game lines are exercises in uncerainty, and their performances against those lines are inconsistent and ambiguous.

When it comes to this era of Cavaliers basketball, future bets are the way to go. You know they're going to be Eastern Conference favorites, so it's best to invest in those odds early. The same goes for their championship odds, which will only diminish in appeal as they inch toward the playoffs.

The best time to bet on the Cavaliers' futures is actually when they're at their worst. Conference odds will start to slip in the bettor's favor whenever Cleveland hits a rough patch, and that's when you'll want to pounce. Regular-season losses can be discouraging, but LeBron James is a different animal in the playoffs.

Whatever team he's playing on in the East is almost assured of reaching the NBA Finals until another squad proves otherwise.
