Cavaliers Looking to Clinch in Canada

Cavaliers Raptors NBA

With a trip to their second straight NBA Finals on the line, the Cleveland Cavaliers will try to win a game in Toronto after losing four straight both SU and ATS at the Air Canada Centre. After getting upset in Games 3 and 4 in Toronto, the Cavs laid the smack down in Game 5 at home in a 116-78 win.

Shark Bites
  • Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan combined for 119 points in Games 3 and 4 in Toronto.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 18 of the Cavaliers' last 22 games on the road against the Raptors.
  • The total has gone UNDER in three of the Cavaliers' last four games after a win.

This matchup has been all about home-court advantage as the home team is 8-0 SU and ATS in the last eight games between the teams. Toronto opened the day as +6 dogs — a spot where they’ve gone 3-0 SU and ATS in their last three games in that situation. Betting on the Raptors as a home underdog has been profitable for bettors, as they’ve gone 7-1 ATS dating back to last season.

The total for the game is currently set at 196 — a number that heavily favors the Cavs who have gone 12-2 SU in their last 14 games with a closing total of 196 or more. That’s not a good number for the Raptors, as they’ve gone 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games with a closing total of 196 or less.

Also of importance going into the game — the Cavaliers are a perfect 5-0 SU in games where they can clinch a playoff series since LeBron James' return to Cleveland.
