Bet on Cavaliers vs. Celtics

Cleveland took its foot off the gas in Game 3. It led to a bad loss, but could spark a fire that they need heading into the NBA Finals. Cleveland had been coasting in these playoffs and this loss could give them their edge back. They won’t take Boston lightly today and LeBron should have a monster game after coming out flat on Sunday. Cleveland still had a massive lead in Game 3, so they can clearly cover this spread as long as they keep their killer instinct.
