Celtics facing Cleveland Cavaliers - Basketball Betting

Basketball betting on Sunday is highlighted by an ABC televised contest between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Most people believe these two teams will meet down the road in the Eastern Conference Finals so this will be an interesting game. The Cavaliers are favored in this basketball betting matchup.

Basketball betting scheduling information shows that the Cavaliers are in the first half of a back-to-back as they visit Indiana tomorrow. The Cavaliers may have lost six of the last ten against the Celtics straight up but they are 8-2 against the basketball odds in those games. NBA betting numbers tell us that this is a huge home team series as the Cavaliers have won the last 10 home meetings against Boston including 98-83 back in January. Many basketball betting experts believe that Cleveland is now the best team in the Eastern Conference, not Boston.

Boston has actually been a little bit better on the road this season than at home in terms of the basketball betting pointspread. The Celtics play great defense, 2nd to the Cavaliers in the league as basketball betting stats indicate. The problem for the Celtics lately in basketball betting has been injuries, especially to Kevin Garnett. Boston just does not look like the same team versus the basketball betting line without a healthy Garnett in the lineup.

Cleveland has been phenomenal at home this season both straight up and against the NBA betting pointspread. Very few teams have even challenged Cleveland at home this season in terms of the basketball odds. Basketball betting information shows that the Cavaliers are led by LeBron James who probably will win the MVP this season. Their defense has been #1 in the league virtually all season as basketball betting statistics show, and their offensive numbers are not bad either.

Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. At Cleveland, three of the last four have gone under the basketball betting number. This makes some sense considering both teams play excellent defense.

This could be a preview of the Eastern Conference Finals. You definitely want to be able to watch and wager on the Celtics and Cavaliers in NBA betting, so make sure you open an account at SBG Global today.
