GS Warriors vs Cleveland Cavs (By: Khum)

NBA Finals

Game 1

Golden State Warriors - Cleveland Cavaliers

Here we go, the 4th consecutive year with these familiar foes.

This time around, the Warriors are bigger favourites than ever.

Reasons are obvious: they are pretty far over Cleveland in terms of talent, team play and coaching.

I see the champs winning and probably covering the huge spread tonight, yet my wagger will come from a different angle.

The Cavaliers cannot even dream overscoring this Golden State team while going on a fast pace.

Their only chance to stay close till the final stages of the match and then LeBron to take over is for them to slow down the pace, to fight fiercely for every ball, as they did in game 7 in Boston.

And that would lead to ... a low scoring game. Yes, I like the under in this matchup and I find these lines aa bit funny after 9 out of Golden State's 10 games going under, 5 out of Cleveland's 7 games going under and 7 out of the last 9 encounters these two had in Oracle Arena going ... of course: under.

Having full confidence in the match total under, I'm gonna enhance even mor the winning chances going with the Cleveland total under, as Golden State has the best defense.

Let's go green!

I have missed mentioning some essential stats :)
- Only the fast paced Pelicans have scored over 101 points in Oracle Arena in these playoffs, as the Warriors allowed less in 7 out of 9 home games.
- The Cavaliers have scored less than 94 points in 6 out of their 9 road games in the playoffs, and except a 104 points game in Indiana the other two were in Toronto, known as well as Lebronto, as they are losing their minds each year against King James.
