    People can say that they can flip the switch when its playoff time, but it doesn't look like they have the chemistry this time. They're gonna mess around and miss the entire dance.

    Even though the numbers make Cleveland a favorite, they do have some competition and tough match-ups.

    It could be very interesting.

    Can't imagine anyone else besides cavs being the favs. Whether it correct or not I dunno (I wouldn't take anyone else) but I'd be surprised if they would expose themselves all the ppl that believe in bron righting the ship. Just look at the lines while cavs continued losing!

    Taking the +105 and the +275 for equal risk and when the Raptors win the East, I'll be kicking myself...

    Looks like they synced up and holding with Cleveland +105 and Boston +260.

    Toronto a solid +600 at both houses.

    The books trying to get money onto Cleveland a bit here. The move not only generates new bets on the +105, bringing new money into the market, but also re routes, to a certain extent, the already new money coming into the market daily simply because we are getting closer to the playoffs each day. Cleveland will also attract hedge or sell back money as well.

    So the strategy, with Cleveland plus money, will also serve to lighten the incoming bets on Boston and Toronto. Perhaps that +600 is a payable prop for the books after all, making +260, roughly two pick parlay odds, a realistic non favorite payout.


    Starting to think Boston and Toronto were the two props to get, leaving Cleveland to burn me. It's a bit of a waste, but I may have to pull the trigger on Toronto and leave myself exposed to a surprise team or just a loss with Cleveland.

    When it comes to the NBA finals, with the talent coming out in the West, I doubt we see that surprise team from the East.

    How can CLEV climb out of this hole?

    Not sure Boston is great value. TOR looks live.

    Chance to really catch a longshot price, imho. Milw 12/1?

    Take both Boston and Toronto. Instant profits.

    Yea what’s the new odds? Still doesn’t change my mind about Cleveland. Maybe the field will get better odds.
