Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors
I've been cashing big in games 1 and 2 of this NBA final series while betting on Golden State Warriors to win and the total to stay under 208.5 points.
These Warriors proved once again what people refuse to see about them: they are a great defending team. Yes, we all now they are the greatest offensive team, but there are a lot of games where they don't defend because they know they can shoot better then the opponents.
- they've beat the Spurs the best defensive team of the regular season, in San Antonio, playing a fierce defense, in their last game. They've just shown they can beat them at their own game;
- they've turned back a 1-3 score in the Western Conference Finals against Oklahoma City Thunder by playing great defense;
- and they've kinda' trashed the Cavaliers in the first two games also by defending as good as a team can defend right now, especially on the 3 points line.
In the past year's final series, these two teams went under 3 times and they've gone over only with overtime in game 1 and with a unleashed Golden State team in the last game. As much as the things were tight, the under was the right choice.
Now there is a big difference: Love and Irving are not injured and the Cavaliers are playing much more offensive than in 2015. BUT THAT'S EXACTLY WHY THE UNDER HAS BECOME A EVEN MORE VALUABLE BET.
GSW's Steve Kerr doesn't want to transform the games in shooting contests, though his team is arguably the best shooting team in the NBA history. Cavaliers are a excellent shooting team too and they could keep up pretty well. Where there is a bigger difference is in defense, where we can find the Kevin Love factor. He's a poor defender and a weak spot and that's why the Warriors have the edge while transforming the game in a defensive one. More than that, while developing a tremendous perimeter game this year, the Cavs went lost on the quality of the game in the paint.
All this while the totals are 12-15 point higher than the past year!!
I cannot see the matches of this series go over before Golden State grab 3 wins.
So, I expect a 3rd under in a row in this finals and the odds at the bookies which offer this kind of bet are awesome: GSW&under 206.5 @ 3.80.
From the bookies that are agreed by Betshoot I recommend you to bet Under 206 @ 1.93 odds offered by Pinnacle.
