  • UPDATE: Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love has not been medically cleared by doctors and will not play in Wednesday's Game 3. At the earliest, his return could come in Game 4.

    The Cleveland Cavaliers have had no answer for the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals, but they’ll try to climb out of an 0-2 hole in the series when Game 3 gets underway in Ohio on Wednesday. The good news for Cavs backers is the seemingly impenetrable Warriors have been underwhelming in Game 3s, going 2-5 SU in the third game of playoff series under head coach Steve Kerr.

    Shark Bites
    • The Cavaliers are 6-0 ATS in their last six games at home.
    • The Warriors are 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games with a closing total of 205.5 or less.
    • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Cavaliers' last six games with two days off between games.

    “It’s a do-or-die game for us,” LeBron James told reporters on Tuesday. Truthfully, that may be an understatement. Cleveland got absolutely dominated in the Sportsbook two games, including a 33-point defeat Sunday night. The Cavs will be ecstatic to get out of the rowdy confines of Oracle Arena and travel back to Quicken Loans Arena, a place where they’re unbeaten in the playoffs.

    Cleveland’s lights-out shooting has dried up, and it’s happened across the board. The Cavaliers lit up scoreboards in the first three rounds but have shot just 35.6 percent against the Dubs so far. The Warriors have stepped up on defense, giving up just 88.8 points per game over the last four contests.

    The total, which opened at 206, will likely see a lot of action on the UNDER. Stephen Curry and company have gone below the total in four straight affairs.

    Sportsbook Odds & Computer Pick

    Cleveland Cavaliers opened as -1-point favorites at online sportsbook Sportsbook, while the NBA total line was sitting around 206 at Sportsbook for those who prefer OVER/UNDER betting on the total amount of points scored.

    Odds Shark computer prediction formulas pick a 102-99 win for the Cavaliers on Wednesday. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NBA matchups here.
