NEW YORK – Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are set to take the floor for the 7-8 matchup in the Eastern Conference NBA Play-In Tournament against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The two are projected to be huge parts of the Brooklyn Nets offense, with both having points O/Us near or above 30 for the game.

Kyrie Irving (BKN) Points O/U Odds

  • Over 28.5 -115
  • Under 28.5 -113

Irving’s point total is set at 28.5, a number that he has easily reached several times this season. In his last five games, Irving has scored more than 30 points three times.

Kevin Durant (BKN) Points O/U Odds

  • Over 32.5 -130
  • Under 32.5 +100

Durant’s point total is set even higher, at a whopping 32.5 points. Notably, the line is shaded towards the over, which has -130 odds.

Durant averaged 29.9 points this season but has had a 55 point game and a 41 point game within the last two weeks.

The two are also the subject of many bets involving combinations of point thresholds and the Nets winning this game.

The Nets are -500 favorites to take the win, with the spread on the game sitting at Nets -9.5 at the time of writing.

Kyrie Irving Player Doubles Odds

  • Kyrie Irving to have 20+ Points and BKN to Win -401
  • Kyrie Irving to have 25+ Points and BKN to Win -304
  • Kyrie Irving to have 30+ Points and BKN to Win +104

Irving’s player doubles odds paint a picture of a near-guaranteed Brooklyn victory. Combining a Brooklyn victory with Irving’s odds to score 20 points only moves the line from -500 to -401.

Increasing the threshold that Irving needs to reach does a bit to help, but it’s not until 30+ points is reached that this performance double hits plus money.

Kevin Durant Player Doubles Odds

  • Kevin Durant to have 35+ Points and BKN to Win +104
  • Kevin Durant to have 40+ Points and BKN to Win +174

Durant’s performance doubles hit plus money fairly early, because the online sportsbooks simply are not offering performance doubles for Kevin Durant getting 20+ points and the Nets winning.

It’s a testament to Durant’s scoring dominance and how favored the Nets are in this game that the only wagers available combining the two start with Durant scoring 35+ points.

NBA betting fans should be very familiar with how truly remarkable Durant can be, but the online sportsbooks seem to be expecting something spectacular from him against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday.
