The Cavs are 51-31, 20-21 on the road, during the regular season.

The Celtics are 53-29, 30-11 at home, during the regular season. 

Before we start treating the Celtics like the Brooklyn Nets, we might want to remember their records and how tough Boston can be at home.

Boston +5.5

If they steal a game, this is it. However, I think betting against the cavs right now is silly. If you watched the regular season match ups, they looked bad for the celtics. The way the cavs have guarded the picks for Thomas has really slowed down the celtics offense, and we know the cavs can light it up on the offensive end. I understand your side, and a 1 seed getting 5.5 when they're tough on their home floor is tempting, but man I just can't pull the trigger on it here.

Agree. Regular season meetings between the teams was all cavs (cavs are 5x better now), boston is basically a fake number one seed (overvalued), playoff lebron is here, irving was trash game 1 (still blowout), cavs bench was trash also, and just watching the game the cavs are just superior.

but cavs -6 seems soo easy

Cavs will dominate once again.
It's almost like they are using these games to fine tune themselves for the Warriors. They are much bette than the regular season as of right now.
Way too much size in the paint for little IT4.
If Boston shoots 75% from beyond the arc it may be interesting in the 4th. That's the only chance I give Boston. Cavs ML Cavs -4 Cavs 1H ML Cavs 1H -2.5
Who's gonna draw the charge against LB under the basket. Lol

It was the Lebron show in game 1 it's going to be the Kyrie show in game 2.

Agreed! I'm going to place half my winnings on the Cavs to win the Chip at +275. Dubs/Cavs should both be -115 to win it all.
LeBron finally has a Kobe like swagger. Look out!!

However I do think Cavs will win the game, but it wont be until the end kinda like how they beat Indy in that game when Indy dominated the first half

I have a feeling Boston might win a game in Cleveland though and give CLE their first loss of the post season.

Boston 1Q +2.....If they don't come out guns blazing tonight, they never will....making a play on 1Q as well.  I like Cleveland to rebound and win the 1H and  full game.....BOL though
