Cavaliers-Celtics Series Has Been a Huge Mismatch Lately

The Cleveland Cavaliers own a 4-0 record for the first time in 16 seasons and can remain unbeaten when they welcome the Boston Celtics to town on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Celtics are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games on the road.
  • The Cavaliers are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games as home favorites.
  • The Celtics are 1-3 SU in their last four games on the road against the Cavaliers.

Sportsbooks opened the wine and gold as 8.5-point favorites with an OVER/UNDER of 210.

Cleveland’s offense is revving right now, most recently in a 128-120 victory over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday. Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving has scored 20 or more points in each of his first four games, including a season-best 32 against the Rockets.

Boston center Al Horford will sit out his second consecutive game due to a concussion after suffering a hit to the head during Monday’s practice. Without Horford on the floor, expect defensive specialist Amir Johnson to see more time. Johnson had a career-best four 3-pointers in Wednesday’s triumph over the Chicago Bulls.

The Celtics haven’t had any luck in this series lately, going 1-6 SU in their last seven games against the Cavs. Home-court advantage has been non-existent, as visiting clubs are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings between the C’s and Cavaliers.
