Yes LeBron is now in his 5th consecutive NBA Finals, and has a tough course ahead as his Cavaliers take on the Warriors, which are lead by the NBA’s present, 2014-15 MVP S. Curry! So if you remain undecided to bet on in this Series, here is some more information.

For the fans who Bet on NBA at an Online sportsbook, and if your leaning toward betting on the Cavaliers of Cleveland, you can be sure the Cleveland team will have the great game of LeBron who is leading his team this season, with steals at 1.9 per postseason, assists at 8.4 each game, 10.5 rebounds each game and is averaging 27.7 points per postseason game. In the 2014-15 Season LeBron only had one game against the Warriors where he had 3 steals. 5 assists, 10 rebounds and 42 points for the game. Thus you can be sure in this 1st Game he will be striving to win and set the tone for the remaining games in this 7 game series. If K. Irving is healthy and plays in normal game that will be a big help for Cleveland in this series.

Should Irving not be at full strength, the Cavaliers have other firepower to compete against the Warriors in Shumpert, Smith, Matthew and Dellavedova who at any moment can get hot from 3-point range as they did in finals of the Eastern Conference? In the Cavaliers ultimate 4 games against the Warriors they are 3-1 against the spread, and straight up.

If you are a Warriors of Golden State you need to know that the 2nd half of the ‘Splash Brothers’ combination of S. Curry and K. Thompson, will be without K. Thompson who had a brain concussion and is out indefinitely. Since the Cavaliers are the best defensive team in the present post season with their defense that loves to suffocate, that could be problematic for Warriors S. Curry, but he seems to like his match-up with Cleveland’s Irving. If Curry can’t get started, then the rest of the Warriors roster will need to step up if they want to win their 1st NBA Title since back in the 1975 season. Their key could be with D. Green who can do all, as this postseason per game he has 1.3 blocks, 1.68 steals, 5.4 assists, 10.9 rebounds and has average 11.8 points per game. In their last 5 games at their home court of the Oracle Arena the Warriors are 4-1 against the spread.

The experts are predicting that in Game 1 with the Warrior 2nd part of the ‘Splash Brother’ absent, the Cavaliers LeBron will have a big game and give Cleveland a big win in this 1st Game.
