The Miami Heat were coming in at -12 versus the Cleveland Cavs after opening overnight at -2.5.
The Cavaliers will not be starting Lebron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving against Miami on Monday.
The Cavs are planning to start J.R. Smith, Richard Jefferson, Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert, and Deron Williams.
Miami has won half of their last ten games and are vying for the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference, looking to push ahead of Chicago. They have covered the spread in six of their last ten games.
Earlier this year, Miami mounted a massive push from among the NBA basement dwellers to record the best ever consecutive win streak (13) for a team under the .500 mark. Currently they are two games below the mark.
