NBA Eastern Conference Finals Market Update

Mon, May 14, 11:17am by Staff Writer

The Boston Celtics used a huge first quarter run to set up victory in game one of their Eastern Conference finals series with the Cleveland Cavaliers, winning 108-83 on Monday morning.

The Eastern Conference winner is now anyone’s guess, with the Celtics and Cavs both locked at $1.91 on the outright market after game one.

The Celtics came out of the blocks firing, leading 36-18 after the first quarter.

The Cavs mounted a response in the third quarter after trailing by 26 points at half-time, but they were never truly in the contest despite starting game one as favourites.

LeBron James had one of his quietest playoff games of the season, scoring only 15 point and connecting on 5 of his 16 field goal attempts. He was a -32 in the +/- statistics, the worst of any Cleveland player on the court.

The Cavs leading scoring was Kevin Love who had 17 points, but the entire Cleveland roster produced an underwhelming playoff performance.

The Celtics continued to get steady production from all of their key pieces. Marcus Morris was once again in the starting lineup and he was exceptional scoring 21 points, including three 3-pointers.

Al Horford was 8/10 from the field scoring 20 points, while second year player Jaelyn Brown led all scorers with 23 points.

The series total games which was favouring six games before the series began has seen some market movement, with seven games now the favoured number at $2.50 at Sportsbet, with a six game series now paying $2.60.

An unlikely series sweep by the Celtics is paying $15.

The Cavaliers to take out victory in six games remains the most popular in the series correct score market, with a 4-2 Cleveland win paying $3.66. The Cavs to win in seven games is paying $4.95, while the Celtics to win by the same score is also paying $4.95.

In the series correct score after 3 games market, the Cavs to win the next two games and take a 2-1 advantage is paying $2.80, with the shortest price on offer in that market being the Celtics to be leading 2-1 at $1.83. An unlikely 3-0 Celtics lead is paying $5.

Game two of this best-of-seven series takes place on Wednesday morning in Boston.

The Celtics are $1.88 favourites to consolidate home court advantage and take a 2-nil series lead. The Cavaliers are $1.96 outsiders after being favourites in game one

The opening handicap for the match is favouring Boston by a point at $1.91 at Sportsbet.
