If we look at the overall picture after the first two games it would seem as though the fans in Oracle Arena have seen their last game of the year and will have to wait until the Warriors complete the sweep of Cleveland before they can celebrate. Wait a minute though, I think LeBron James has still not spoken and might have a little to say before this is over. The triple-double from James was not nearly enough for the Cavs to return home with a win, but they do have recent history on their side…for now anyways.
Last years comeback from 3-1 down is about all the Cavaliers have to stand on because the first two games have been a pretty clear indication that Kevin Durant is making a considerable matchup problem defensively for Cleveland. Durant finished with 33 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists. Stephen Curry once again came to play with KD and ended with a triple double of 32,10 and 11, while the real bad news for Clevelnad was Klay Thompson waking up after a miserable playoffs with 22 points and 7 rebounds.
The series is now traveling to Cleveland where things are supposed to change although most experts are thinking differently with 888sport.com leaving the Warriors as 2.5 point favorites and once again raising the total to 225.5 points. I guess that is pretty normal after the 132-113 rout last night by Golden State. In these cases it may be time to look deeper in the list of bets to find something that might fit our stlye.
My thought process here varies a little bit with the norm but I can honestly see the Warriors pulling of an upset in Cleveland in a hard fought ball game but we can not ignore the fact that this game is a huge one for Cleveland and it’s fans. The Cavs pay 2.23 to win the game outright but I would be more inclined in cutting that bet in half but still with a good payout. The Cavs to win the first half straight up pays 2.02 and I can honestly see that happening since they have really played Golden State tough during the first 24 minutes. Game 1 was a 8 point first half deficit for Cleveland and Game 2 was only a three point differential. I believe in Cleveland we might see a familiar second half Golden State team but they will need to come from behind this time. Cleveland Cavaliers 1st Half Winners @ 2.02.
So far we have won 3 of our 4 bets here in these Finals and I think we will be in a position to make some more money in Game 3. Good Luck!!!
