Online Basketball Betting Odds:
It was all smiles in Boston through the first two games of this series. However, things have taken a turn for the worse in Cleveland. The online basketball betting odds were pegging Boston as an underdog in Game 3, but they weren’t predicting a 30-point loss for the Celts. With that humbling defeat in mind, Boston must find a way to bounce back in a colossal fashion. Moreover, the club has to find a way to do it without their biggest stars. It’s a tall bill but one Boston will have to fill together, as a team. No player broke 20-points for Boston in Game 3, which is something that needs to change this evening.
Players to Watch: Jayson Tatum (18.1 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 2.9 apg), Jaylen Brown (17.3 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 1.4 apg), and Terry Rozier (17.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 5.4 apg).
LeBron James led the way for Cleveland in Game 3, finishing the night with 27 points, 12 assists and 5 rebounds. Although James didn’t have to deliver a Hall of Fame performance to get Cleveland the win, James still had one impressive night. Sportsbook bettors can expect James to have another successful outing this evening, since the King will be playing in Boston. Monday’s betting odds are pegging Cleveland as a heavy favorite. Considering Boston’s success in Game 3, bettors should share that sentiment.
Players to Watch: LeBron James (32.9 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 9.4 apg), Kevin Love (15.3 ppg, 10.6 rpg, 1.6 apg), and Kyle Korver (10.4 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 0.9 apg).
