NBA Playoffs odds on Saturday favor the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road in Atlanta on Saturday. The Cavaliers have looked as good as any team in NBA Playoffs betting this season and they will try and put the Atlanta Hawks on the brink of elimination in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal on Saturday.
NBA Playoffs odds trends do point to the Cavaliers. Cleveland has won 9 of the last 11 games overall against the Hawks. The Cavaliers have been super on the road in this series against the Hawks. Cleveland has won 8 of the last 10 in Atlanta and they are 7-3 against the spread as NBA Playoffs odds numbers tell us. The teams met twice this season in Atlanta and the teams split the two games as NBA Playoffs odds information shows. Atlanta actually covered the online betting pointspread in both games though as Cleveland won 88-87 while Atlanta won 97-92 as NBA Playoffs betting odds statistics show.
Cleveland tied with Boston and Orlando for the second best road record in the league this season behind the Lakers. Atlanta was no slouch at home as NBA Playoffs odds stats show as they went 31-10 during the regular season, trailing only Cleveland, Boston and Orlando in the Eastern Conference. Online sports betting gamblers know that Atlanta can be tough at home but going against LeBron James and the Cavaliers is never easy to do, even when they are on the road.
Cleveland has played fantastic defense all season and they have even stepped it up a notch in NBA Playoffs odds. The way to win games and cover the NBA Playoffs odds on the road is to play defense. Atlanta at home probably still doesn’t have enough offensive weapons to challenge the Cavaliers in NBA Playoffs betting. Joe Johnson is capable of scoring a lot of points and impacting NBA Playoffs odds but so far in NBA Playoffs betting he has not done that very often.
Six of the last ten games between the two teams in Atlanta have gone over the total. NBA Playoffs odds numbers show that is somewhat surprising considering Cleveland plays great defense and Atlanta’s offense is suspect.
