Cavs Look to Catch Online Basketball Betting Favorites
Posted by: Mike Davis
The Golden State Warriors didn’t hesitate to seize the day this past online basketball betting Monday night when they manhandled the San Antonio Spurs 129-115. With that victory, the Warriors managed to remain undefeated on their way to the NBA Finals. The Warriors haven’t forgotten what happened in last year’s title series, and their push this postseason shows just how focused this team is. I mean, how many teams have entered the NBA Finals with an unblemished 12-0 record? Zero.

Granted, the Warriors did have to contend against a Kawhi Leonard-less San Antonio. However, it’s unlikely that the history books will keep that footnote. Instead, online basketball betting historians will talk about how Golden State managed to set forth a record for most single-season wins, and followed that up by posting an undefeated path to the NBA Finals. Now the Cavs will try to impress players who bet on NBA games this Tuesday night.

NBA Games Betting Odds:

Game 3 of this series was played this past Sunday, with the Celtics delivering a surprising online basketball betting upset, 111-108. That upset marked the first loss Cleveland has endured this postseason and while that is impressive, it instantly makes Golden State seem like the favorite to win the title. This Tuesday night, the Cavs will have an opportunity to put Boston on their heels by going up 3 games to 1. Interestingly enough, most basketball betting sites are giving them great odds to get it done.
In Game 3, it was Marcus Smart who was able to lead Boston to an upset victory. Smart put up 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists. Smart got some for the Celts’ superstar, Avery Bradley who was good for 20 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds.
Boston enters as a heavy betting underdog, making a wager on Boston extremely lucrative. Considering that Cleveland is 0-2 in Game 4s with a 2-1 lead since James’ return to the Cavs, it’s clear that a wager on the Celtics isn’t misguided either.
LeBron James had a rather pitiful performance in Game 3, scoring just 11 points in 45 minutes of play. If James puts up similar stats in Game 4, Boston will certainly come out on top once again. Kyrie Irving led the Cavs in points this past Sunday, putting up 29 points, 7 assists, and 2 rebounds. Second in points that evening was Kevin Love, who drained 28 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assists.
