Cleveland Cavs vs Philadelphia
Just after those big and numerous trades, Cleveland Cavaliers looked better. But seems it was only a short breathing success since the Cavs are again back to terrible form. They have covered just once in last four games and that was against terrible Memphis Grizzlies. They even lost two of those four. So although today's short handicap on Cleveland looks tempting, no thanks if you ask me.
But I think Lebron James will have another huge game. In previous two in this season against 76ers (both victories), James scored both times 30 pts, had 14 and 13 rebounds, 6 and 13 assists.
Still, the bookies expect his huge game and totals on him in any category are too high. But I noticed one interesting betting option in Pinnacle. It's LeBron James to score over 1.5 3-pts shoots. IMO at least two such successful attempts are piss of cake for him.
It's true LeBron due his big physical advantage, very often penetrates to the rim. But when he is open, he takes shoots from downtown without problems.
Overall in the season, James went over 1.5 in 30 out of 60 games. So, it's only 50% winning ratio but it's still profitable when you have these odds.
Also note lately he is scoring more than usual and had at least two successful 3-pts attempts in six of the last nine games.
