Cleveland Cavs vs Boston Celtics
Game 4, Boston Celtics are 2-1 up.
In game 3 I was right with my HT FT bet on Cleveland. Only, to be honest I didn't expect to see such easy win for the Cavs.
Now after three games played and after watching also previous rounds these teams played, I am slowly getting impression this is going to be solved in Game 7, plus we won't see road win in six games till then. Cause, although Celtics are better side, now is already clear they are much weaker on the road. I mean, every team is better at home than away, but with Celtics this difference seems really significant. I mean they couldn't beat the Milwaukee Bucks on the road and had to go all 7. They won one in Philadelphia but if there wasn't that too big empty period from 76ers in that game (thanks to which Celtics made big comeback), I am highly convinced we would see all seven games and without road win also in that series.
That being said, clearly I expect Cleveland to win tonight and thus to tie the score on two wins each.
But I have small doubts this time whether Cleveland will cover. They will win if you ask me, still I am not confident about covering the number.
Cause, in all three games so far, the team who was losing, was really terribly bad in offense (except maybe Cleveland in game 2 but only in first half, while later they collapsed and scored for entire second half as Boston only for the third quarter).
I want to say, I have impressions this is going to be the first game in the series when BOTH teams will hit shots in bunches, not just the team who is winning.
Even with terrible offense of one team in the first three games, we still have had 191, 201 and 202 total scored points. So, with finally both sides in good offensive mood, I see this Game 4 going over the totals, possibly even easily over the offered totals.
P.S. Teaser probably should be the best approach for this game (teaser: side Cleveland, totals over), so we could cut the risk almost on Cleveland money line while totals we can cut to below 200.
