Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers may enter this Game 5 matchup riding a 2-game win streak, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll come out on top this time around. Since Cleveland struggled tremendously in Games 1 and 2, most bettors will be expecting them to struggle once again. By the looks of it, Wednesday’s NBA sports betting odds aren’t favoring Boston at all. Clearly NBA bookmakers believe that the Cavs will be able to ride their momentum to a solid win over the Celtics in Boston.

Players to Watch: LeBron James (33.7 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 9.0 apg), Kevin Love (14.9 ppg, 10.6 rpg, 1.7 apg), and Kyle Korver (10.7 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 0.9 apg).

Boston Celtics

The Celtics need a rebound but at the very least they’ll be playing at home as they try to attain it. All in all, Boston had a decent outing in Game 4 but were unable to contain LeBron. James would go on to finish the night with 44 points, almost twice as much as Boston’s best player delivered. Jaylen Brown was the one who led the way in scoring in Game 4 as he finished the game with 25 points, 2 assists and 6 rebounds. To come out on top this evening, Boston needs to find a way to deter James’ game. Ultimately Boston will be hoping that the fans will help them to do so.

Players to Watch: Jayson Tatum (18.0 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 2.8 apg), Jaylen Brown (17.8 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.5 apg), and Terry Rozier (17.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 5.8 apg).
