NBA Playoffs “Prospective” Betting: 

The Celtics are 9-point underdogs in their series opener vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers…and bettors at SPORTSBETTING.com still like King James and the Cavs to continue their playoff domination, as 80% of all the volume wagered on the game is on Cleveland.

The Orlando Magic are only a 6.5-point underdog in their series opener vs. the Cavaliers. While the odds suggest the Magic have a better shot matching up against Lebron and his crew, bettors still like Cleveland to cover the number, as 76% of all the early action has come in on Cleveland at the top online sportsbooks.  

These betting options are live right now at SPORTSBETTING.com with their new “Prospective Betting”…in fact every possible playoff matchup through to the final game of the season is up on the board and open for betting. 

Looking even further down the playoff road, bettors have been focused on the NBA Finals and in particular, the LA Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers matching up.  

Steady betting action has been coming in on the “Prospective” line for Game 1. That line has the Cavaliers favored by 4.5 points. The betting action is tilted 70% to the home side. 

However, bettors have targeted the Lakers as a strong play in Game 3 of this “Prospective” series. This would be LA’s first game back home at the Staples Center and if they are coming back down 2-0, or even split at 1-1. It looks like the bettors feel this is a good spot for Kobe Bryant and the team to have a big night, buoyed by the home town fans.  

The line for Game 3 of the NBA Finals is LA -5. The Lakers are receiving 74% of the betting action.  

But there are still games to be played to see who will matchup against whom in the Conference Finals before we move on to the NBA Finals matchup.  

While both the Denver Nuggets and Cleveland Cavaliers are moving on to their respective conference finals, four other teams are fighting to join them.  

Last season’s Eastern Conference and NBA champion–that would be the Boston Celtics–can advance with a victory tonight. 

Up 3-2 in their series against the Orlando Magic, the Celtics are listed as 6.5-point road underdogs going into tonight’s Game 6 in Orlando with the Total set at 190. 

Total bettors take note: in their last nine meetings at Amway Arena, the Celtics and Magic have a record of 2 overs and 7 unders.  

As highlighted above, should the Celtics eliminate the Magic tonight, they would begin the Eastern Conference final in Cleveland with the “Prospective” line set as Boston as a 9-point road underdog for Game 1 with the Total set at 183. 

If it is Boston vs. Cleveland and you want to get a jump on betting this series, here’s a little info to help you out.  

Boston has not done well in Cleveland and Celtics bettors haven’t either obviously, as Boston is only 2-9 ATS in the last 11 road games against the Cavs and are currently on a five-game ATS losing streak on Cleveland’s home court. 

Wagering on the Cavaliers against the Magic has been like throwing money away as Cleveland is 1-10 ATS in the last 11 games between the two, regardless of venue, and more recently are 0-5 ATS in the last five. 

The story is similar in Cleveland’s last 12 home games against the Orlando Magic as the Cavs are 4-8 ATS, including 0-5 ATS in their last five in front of the home town fans.  

Enjoy tonight’s playoff games…we’ll soon know who is facing the Cavs and Nuggets in the next round.

  1. Cleveland appears to be a prohibitive favorite agianst either Boston or Orlando. Can the continue their domination in these playoffs winning a 9th game by double digits? I believe so as they are clearly the best team left in the playoffs
