Hold onto your high-tops, hoop-heads! We’ve got a clash of the titans tonight as the 37W-27L Phoenix Suns are packing their SPF 50 to take on the 40W-24L Cleveland Cavaliers at the illustrious Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

With tipoff set for 07:30PM EST, you’ve got just enough time to place your bets and pop some corn. The over/under is chilling at a cool 220.5, and if you’re feeling spicy, the Suns line is at -5.5, while the Cavaliers are sitting pretty at 5.5.
