Odds on LeBron James Leaving the Cavs

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers

When LeBron James came back to Cleveland in 2014 after an excursion to Miami, he made one promise: to bring a championship to Northeast Ohio.

NBA Finals: Game 7 Betting Preview

No team has ever come back from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors haven’t lost three games in a row since November, 2013. Something’s gotta give in Game 7 at Oracle Arena.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games.
  • The Cavaliers are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Golden State.
  • The UNDER is 3-0-1 in the Warriors last 4 home games.

For a city that’s endured 52 years of sporting misery, a championship would mean the world to the city of Cleveland. In LeBron James’ second season, the Cavs had an up-and-down campaign but are coming together at the right time. James and point guard Kyrie Irving have been otherworldly, and they’ve done something that’s hard to do: make the Warriors look human.

The shots just haven’t been falling for the Warriors in this series. Golden State showed signs of frustration in Game 6, as superstar Stephen Curry and head coach Steve Kerr were fined $25,000 for their respective outbursts. Curry threw his mouthguard into the Cavs’ faithful in a rare event for the usually cool point guard.

If the Cavs can finally win the title, they may build a statue for James by the start of the next season. King James joined Jerry West, Shaquille O’Neal, Rick Barry and Michael Jordan as the only players in Finals history to score 40 or more points in consecutive games.

Sportsbooks opened the Warriors as 5-point favorites, and that line has held steady as of Sunday morning. The total, which opened at 206, was sitting at 207 at the time of writing.

Who ya got: Warriors or Cavs? Let us know in the comment section.
