Cleveland Cavaliers vs Boston Celtics Series Picks

07 May, 2024

This series tips off tonight with the Cavaliers as heavy favorites. In fact, according top online sportsbooks, Boston are extremely heavy favorites to win this series. They are -3000 odds to beat Cleveland, which mean Cleveland is +1100 to win. Judging by these numbers, it’s not looking good for the Cavs. But, who doesn’t love a good underdog story?

Boston had little trouble dispatching of the Miami Heat in the first round winning 4 games to 1. Jimmy Butler was not on the floor and this was apparent. The Heat, with Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo, were simply not strong enough to hang with the best team in the NBA. Miami played their hearts out but Boston was just too much. The Celtics would win 4 games to 1.

Cleveland was down by 5 at halftime in their game 7 matchup against the Orlando Magic. Things were looing bleak for the Cavs. But they came out in the second half and dominated it by scoring 17 more points that the Magic were able to muster.

So how do you bet a series where the underdog is completely outmatched but the favorite odds are just too rich to risk your hard earned money on? Well, just like there are run lines and puck lines in baseball and hockey where you pick the winner +/- 1.5 points/goals, you can bet a series in the same fashion. Except, you can bet them +/- 1.5 games. That is how we are approaching this matchup. Boston -1.5 games in this series is much more manageable at -390 odds. This means they can win by 2 games, 3 games or even sweep and you cash your ticket.
