The top-seeded Cavaliers are eyeing a NBA betting championship and have a chance to close out the Bulls in Chicago as their first-round series shifts to the United Center for Games 3 and 4 on Thursday and Sunday.
The Cavaliers look to take a commanding 3 games to none lead heading into Thursday night’s Game 3 in their best of 7 series with the Bulls. The Cavaliers enter this game with nothing to play for. Cleveland is 61-17 overall and have clinched home court for the entire NBA playoffs.
And here’s what the Bull’s coach Del Negro says, “The game’s emotional, guys are into it,” “The atmosphere and everything is great. Tomorrow night, we’re home and we’re going to come out with a lot of energy. Just because we’re at home, doesn’t mean all of a sudden we’re going to play that much better. But we’re going to have to play smarter, be more efficient and in the fourth quarter, we’re going to have to get stops and put the ball in the basket betting.”
The Cavaliers: 61-21 SU, 37-43-2 ATS
The Bulls: 41-41 SU, 42-38-2 ATS
