In accordance to the prophecy, the Cleveland Cavaliers justified their status as the favorites of people betting on basketball, won game 6 of the NBA Finals 115-101 at home, tied the series 3-3, and forced a game 7 on Sunday, June 19th at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. And to add insult to injury, LeBron James absolutely, totally, completely, utterly pwned Stephen Curry – including a vicious blocked shot with a side of trash talk. The King shot Curry down with extreme prejudice – execution style.
Nevertheless, the odds at SBG Global sportsbook favor the Golden State Warriors to win game 7:
Cavaliers +4½ (-110) 206½ (-110) +165
Warriors -4½ (-110) 206½ (-110) -190
I know those are plyometric shoes. They isolate the muscles. The muscle has to grow... or die. And it apparently died on Curry, because nothing went his way last night. He did score 30 points which should be par for the course for him, but the only other stats in which he registered more than 2 were turnovers and personal fouls. As a matter of fact, he was fouled out, prompting Mrs. Curry to go all “oh no you di'n't!” on the twitterz. Draymond Green was back from suspension and had 8 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists, while Klay Thompson added 25 points.
On the other hand, LeBron James did not disappoint people betting on basketball. James scored 41 points for the second consecutive game – the first player to have consecutive 40-point games in the finals since Shaq in 2000 –, plus 8 rebounds and 11 assists, leading the Cavs to a 9-1 postseason home record. Kyrie Irving had 23 points and both Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith scored in the double digits. And Kevin Love was, you know, there. At the end of the night, the Cavs became the third team to come back from a 3-1 deficit and force a seventh game.
Speaking of which, GS fans betting on basketball should not be concerned about the NBA suspending Curry for game 7 – though he did shed a bit of that squeaky clean image. Curry cursed at officials, and got a technical after hitting a Cleveland fan with his mouthpiece! Truth be told, the Warriors are going to need a darker and edgier Stephen Curry if they don’t want to see a historic season go down the drain. And remember, SBG Global sportsbook is the place to place your wagers.
