NBA Finals Game 7 Pick
It’s all come down to one game. Who will prevail in Game 7 of the NBA Finals as the Golden State Warriors host the Cleveland Cavaliers at 8PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Golden State is favored at home, as the Warriors are getting odds of -5 points against the Cavaliers. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 206.5 points. This series is tied at 3-3.
Golden State is 88-17 on the season, 50-4 at home, 59-44-2 against the spread and 54-49-2 with the over. Cleveland is 72-30 overall, 30-21 on the road, 49-50-3 against the spread and 51-50-1 with the under. Cleveland forced Game 7 with a 115-101 win over the Warriors at home in Game 6. The winning team has covered in all six games of this series and these two are 3-2-1 with the under in the series.
Regardless of what has happened in this series to this point, you’d have to expect this game to be a battle. Cleveland has clearly found its stride the past few games and should continue to have success against the small lineup of Golden State. The Warriors should shoot better at home, but will they be up for the physical challenge of dealing with LeBron and Tristan Thompson? Golden State could win this game, but I expect it to go to the wire and for Cleveland to at least cover the 5.
