Posted by: Charlie Smith
While NBA betting online players weren’t surprised to see the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics pairing for the Eastern Conference Finals, they were shocked to see how Game 1 ended. Seeing Boston come out on the winning end of Game 1 wasn’t a complete bombshell. But seeing them beat the Cavs by 25 points certainly was. Will Tuesday’s 2 team parlay odds take Game 1’s results into account? Let’s find out.

NBA Betting Online Odds:
After a humbling outing in Game 1, the Cavaliers need a strong showing in Game 2 to keep the NBA betting online bookmakers on their side. By the looks of it, the odds are predicting a close contest for this evening’s action. What’s most surprising is the spread line, which is predicting a 1-point deficit despite the fact that Cleveland just lost by 25. But all in all, the Cavaliers still have LeBron James on their side of the battle. James has enough talent to piggyback this team through this series. However, if Boston can deliver the same level of teamwork that they did in Game 1, and maybe they’ll be even too much for LeBron to topple.
Players to Watch: LeBron James (32.7 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 9.0 apg), Kevin Love (14.9 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 1.3 apg), and Kyle Korver (10.1 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 1.1 apg).
When Boston made the move to bring in Kyrie Irving, it wouldn’t have been that surprising to tell you that they would go on to make the Eastern Conference Finals. However, if someone had told you that they would do so despite the loss of Irving and Gordon Hayward to injury, you might have had a harder time believing that. But nevertheless, Boston has prevailed through a group effort. In Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Boston had three players deliver performances of 20 or more points. Jayson Tatum wasn’t that far behind either with 16-points on the night. If the Celts can deliver that type of performance once again, they should be near impossible to beat.
Players to Watch: Jayson Tatum (18.6 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 3.2 apg), Jaylen Brown (17.4 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.3 apg), and Terry Rozier (17.4 ppg, 5..5 rpg, 5.9 apg).
