Betting on the Boston Celtics (+6.5)
The Celtics simply got outworked and outclassed by Cleveland in Game 3. The Celtics also did not help themselves by committing too many turnovers. After recording just 14 total errors in the first two games of the series, Boston turned the ball over 15 times in Game 3. They also shot just 39.2 percent from the field on Saturday, their worst in the series and second worst in the playoffs thus far. While the Cavs’ home court advantage certainly did a part in slowing down Boston, the Celtics should still be able to play better this Monday than they did in Game 3. Jaylen Brown must be aching to bounce back after scoring just 10 points on 3-for-8 shooting. Brown scored 23 points in both Game 1 and 2. The same could also be true for Al Horford, who only had seven markers in the contest.
The under is 4-0 in Boston’s last four road games.
Betting on the Cleveland Cavaliers (-6.5)
LeBron James did not have to score 40 nor he needed to post a monster triple-double for the Cavs to win in Game 3. Nevertheless, he led his team with remarkable numbers of 27 points pm 8-for-12 shooting, 12 assists, five rebounds, two steals, and two blocks, His teammates also stepped up and deserved a tip of the hat from Cavs faithful with all Cleveland starters scoring in double figure., The Cavs’ 3-point shooting finally broke through on Saturday, as the team went 17-fpr-34 from beyond the arc – that’s the most triples they have had in a game since the postseason kicked off. The Cavs are making 10.7 threes per game on 34.9 percent shooting percentage in the playoffs. James, meanwhile, is putting up 26.7 points on 51.9 percent shooting from the field in the conference finals.
The Cavs are 6-0 SU (2-4 ATS) in their last six home games.
Cleveland wins, 110-105.
