Best Bet: Under 214.5 @1.40 (U.S: -250) – The series is back on court and headed to Cleveland. Both teams are coming off defeats at home but the deciding factor for this series looks to be who will be healthy, not suspensions or the bench. I suppose that’s a few factors there…
The Cavs fans have just about had enough of Kevin Love, and so has their game plan. Game 5 saw LeBron and Kyrie drop 41 points each to grab the win against the Warriors without Draymond and Bogut after half time (who has now been ruled out for 6-8 weeks). Injury aside, Bogut has made the trip to Ohio as he is very confident in his teammates, and hopes it’s a celebration.
Draymond is back and who knows whats going to happen with Love, the series still doesn’t have a clear favourite, and could be going down the path of a Game 7.
Feeling Lucky: Golden State -2.5 @2.58 ( U.S: +158) – Our feeling lucky tips take into consideration the ‘Golden State at great odds’ factor. In Game 4, the Warriors were able to quieten down the Quicken Loans arena faithful while Kyrie was ripped apart by all for his ‘hero’ ball antics. LeBron has to score 30+ again to keep the pressure on the Warriors and make up for the deficiencies of Love on the offensive end.
Questions were asked about LeBron’s capabilities in taking over, and he’s answered his critics in this series, now its your turn Steph.
Feeling VERY Lucky: Golden State -6.5 @4.00 ( U.S: +300) – As above but with a stretch. Very do-able! GSW to be the 2016 Champions…
