Raptors-Cavaliers are Cashing OVER Bets

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors have proven they’re the cream of the crop in the Eastern Conference, and now they’ll battle it out for the right to represent the East in the NBA Finals. Game 1 tips off Tuesday evening in Ohio.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 2-6 SU and ATS in their last eight games as an underdog of 10.0 or less.
  • The Cavaliers are 4-0 SU in their last four games at home.
  • The Raptors are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games on the road.

Cleveland has yet to lose in the postseason after dispatching Detroit and Atlanta in dominating fashion, while the Raptors have been on the brink of elimination twice but outlasted Indiana and Miami in seven games to get this far.

LeBron James has been dismantling opposing defenses in the playoffs, averaging 23.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists. Unlike last year when Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving caught the injury bug, James is not alone this time around. That means Toronto should rightfully be worried about the Cavs’ healthy big three as they attempt to bring Cleveland its first NBA title.

When the Cavs and Raps collide, high-scoring affairs are the story. The OVER is 4-1 in the last five matchups between the clubs.
