When you are a degenerate gambler, you find things to wager on. Anything to fuel the addiction, right?

So, with Major League Baseball on its all-star break and the WNBA with no games scheduled today, it’s time to wager on one of the lone things on the betting board — the NBA Summer League.

Some sports books have odds posted for games at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilon, and you guessed right, this isn’t my first time betting summer ball.

Cleveland Cavs vs. Philadelphia 76ers, Total Over 155.5 $440 to win $400 : Cleveland has one of the best summer league teams with a pair of first overall draft picks — former UNLV player Anthony Bennett (2013) and Andrew Wiggins (2014). The Cavs scored 91 points Sunday against San Antonio, with Bennett and Wiggins the two best players on the court. They can score at will.

Philadelphia scored 91 points Friday against Memphis. It also played in the summer league in Orlando, meaning its players have more chemistry together and experience.

Get out your calculators. This game will fly over the total.

Standings: Bern (36-25-1, $13,279), Keefer (29-35, $8,596), Brewer (24-36-3, $2,785)
