It’s not often in sports at any level where the championship at the end of the season turns out to have the two teams that everyone predicted before the season even started.
When you are looking at this series from a gamblers point of view, if you decide to play this series, my advice is to go with the Cavaliers. Currently an $100 bet on Cleveland will win you $230. A $100 bet on Golden State will only gain a $40 profit.
My Vegas Play: Cleveland Cavaliers +230
Prediction Cavs in 6 games
Thoughts going into the series:
The Cavs and Warriors have spilt the last 10 match-ups 5-5. In all ten of those games the moneyline winner also covered the spread.
The first 6 games of last years NBA finals were all decided by 11 points or more.
I'm not going to pretend to have the most experience as a professional handicapper. There are so many guys who I have great respect for who have been doing this for longer than I have been born. However, in the amount of time I have been handicapping I have learned a lot lessons quickly regarding the major do's and don'ts of sports handicapping, and I continue to get better and learn more every day. And unlike most of the people who will read this bio, I do not lose money betting on sports each year. So after a few years of managing and maintaining profits, and even purchasing picks from other well known and respected "expert" handicappers, whose picks turned out to be much more expensive and less successful than my own, I decided to help fellow gamblers win money, while keeping more money in their own pockets. Honesty, customer service and long term relationships are most important to me, and WINNING of course. Join me on my journey, and let's win some money!
