NBA Finals Handicapping: Cleveland Cavaliers likely to go off as Game 3 favorites

06.08.2016     09:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The line for tonight's NBA Finals Game 3 continues to bounce back and forth. Looking at CRIS's line history, the Cleveland Cavaliers opened -1 and were immediately bet up to -1.5. But then a flood of money came in on the Golden State Warriors as they became -1 chalk at most offshore sportsbooks. Earlier this morning, the markets were back on the Cavs who are now -1.5 at CRIS. Still some lingering opinion with a few shops settling in at a pick 'em. After Games 1 and 2 went under by a combined 40 points, oddsmakers dropped the total to 206 and it was bet under to 205.

Early money on both the series and Thursday's Game 1 of the NBA Finals has come in on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Golden State opened as a -6 home favorite with most offshore sportsbooks now -5.5. CRIS opened the Warriors as -235 series favorites. That was bet down to -210. The two teams met twice during the regular season. On Christmas, the Warriors won 89-83 in Oakland but failed to cover as -7 favorites. In the second meeting, Golden State rolled to a 132-98 victory in Cleveland.

NBA Handicapping: Cleveland Cavaliers now favored to win title

A lot of interesting scenario bets for the NBA title currently available at 5Dimes. Cleveland is one win away from reaching the finals and a +122 favorite (-142 field) to win the championship. Oklahoma City leads Golden State 3-1 and is +163 to win the title. The Warriors are +340. One interesting wager is the Oklahoma City/Golden State combo to win the title for -140. If you feel confident that the Thunder will advance, you can get Oklahoma City over Cleveland for +170 and Cleveland over Oklahoma City for +167 which would obviously ensure a profit.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors must be willing to change opinions on the fly

Successful sportsbettors are not politicians.   Politicians take heat every time they change their opinion – flip-floppers!  A politician who is pro-choice on abortion, for example, will take enormous criticism from both sides, and will probably lose his or her next election if he or she switches to a pro-life stance.

Sports bettors, like politicians, are inevitably going to have some wrong opinions – about teams, about players, about coaches.  Bill Belichick was not a great coach with the Cleveland Browns, and was not highly regarded after suffering a losing campaign in his first year.  Greg Popovich certainly wasn’t a high profile, top notch hire when the Spurs decided he should be their head coach.  The Carolina Panthers weren’t taken seriously by most NFL analysts last year until they reached the Super Bowl.  Steph Curry wasn’t a superstar...until he was. 
Throughout the world of sports and sportsbetting, everybody – E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y! – is going to have some wrong opinions.  But the differences in how bettors deal with those wrong opinions is fairly dramatic; often the Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Betting markets don't believe in Thunder and Clippers

When it comes to the chase for the NBA Championship this year, Golden State has taken all the oxygen in the room. What little hype that has been able to escape the Warriors vortex has gravitated towards San Antonio, especially as the Spurs were chasing the NBA all-time record for most home wins in a season. 

Then Kobe went out and scored 60 on the final night of the regular season.  LeBron announced that he was getting off social media and immediately proceeded to go on a ten game tear to close out the regular season, leading the prohibitive favorite to come out of the East, Cleveland Cavaliers.  The national media spotlight just isn’t big enough to cover more stories than the easy ones that have fallen into their laps over the last few months.

And that leaves two teams that I think are legitimate title contenders sitting as relative afterthoughts in the national media spotlight and in the betting markets.  The Oklahoma City Thunder were priced in the 15-1 range to win the NBA Title entering the playoffs.  The Los Angeles Clippers were even higher, priced in the 30:1 range.  Even though the spotlight is shining brightly on the Read more
