Game one didn't go as many people thought it would. Now NBA fans are thinking 180 degrees from the way they were two days ago. Cleveland came in super hot off a sweep of Toronto and was 1.5 point dogs at Boston. Solid bet right? Nope. Boston dominated Cleveland and won 108-83. It wasn't close.

Now game 2 and we have Cleveland -1 (5dimes sportsbook) at Boston. The line was issued at a PK but has since moved a little. My assumption is that people cannot see Cleveland going down 2-0. I mean we have seen it before... Lebron's back against the wall and he takes it to the super star level and takes over the game and series. Its got to happen again right?

I wouldn't necessarily say that his back is against the wall yet.

Boston at home is 29-20 ATS. Cleveland is just 22-25 ATS on the road. But, the public seems to be taking the Celtics at home now. 80% of cash and 67% of tickets are on Boston as of right now. What to do.

After seeing the way Boston dominated the other night and the fact that Boston is clearly good at home and Cleveland is bad away, I have no choice but to take Boston getting a point. If anything it is a value play. I can see Clev being down 0-2 and their backs getting closer to the wall metaphorically speaking.
