The odds makers once again made the Celtics a home favorite over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Celtics opened up as small (-2.5) favorites. That line quickly shifted a half point and is now at (-2) at many sports betting locations. This line move may not be surprising since it looks as though LeBron is unstoppable when he is in a must win game. Over 53 percent of the early betting is on the Cavs to win game seven and advance to the Finals.
Looking For Love
Kevin Love will not be on the floor for the last game of this series. He has been ruled out for game seven due to a concussion after he banged heads with Jayson Tatum in game 6 and left the game. Jeff Green played well in his place, but he will need another big outing if Love is out for game 7. The good news for Cavs fans is that they have a better point margin without Love.
LeBron and Game 7’s
It’s tough to bet against LeBron James and even tougher in a game 7. The last time LeBron lost a game 7 was in 2008 (against the Celtics). He is 5-2 in his career in a game seven and he has won five straight game 7’s. In those games he averaged 34.4 points per game and he will once again be looking to carry his team to the finals for the eighth straight season.
