Handicappers will likely evaluate a large online basketball betting number here. NBA betting fans will obviously look first to Cleveland in this pairing as the Cavaliers have one of the NBA’s best records and the NBA’s best player while the Thunder have virtually no NBA betting appeal at all.
Online basketball betting fans who have been on Cleveland from the start of the season have made a phenomenal online basketball betting profit. Cleveland had an overall NBA betting record of 20-4 straight up and 19-5 against the NBA betting lines.
The Cavaliers had a dominant online basketball betting record of 8-3 against the spread in away games and were an eye-popping 17-3 against the spread as a NBA betting chalk! James was averaging over 27 points per game to lead the team in scoring.
Cleveland was blowing away the rest of the NBA Central Division and was chasing the Boston Celtics for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Cleveland is a strong team on both sides of the court as they were ranked 5th overall on offense while ranking 1st on defense.
It is a NBA betting aberration for a team this good with a superstar so great as James to cover the spread at such a lethal pace. The ultimate NBA betting question is when the linemaker finally catches up to Cleveland. This makes for two NBA betting schools of thought.
One is ride a hot hand until it finally cools off. The other is that if you haven’t been on Cleveland much so far, this is the worst time to jump on board as their value is about to crash. To expect a NBA team to cover at a near 80% clip is not realistic. The Oklahoma City Thunder have actually given us a great NBA betting lesson on value.
Oklahoma City had an overall NBA betting record of a hopeless 2-22 straight up but were a surprisingly profitable 13-11 against the NBA betting lines. This demonstrates how a horrible team can offer good value as the linemaker will give you extra points and value to take OKC, knowing that you don’t really want to.
The Thunder had a strong NBA betting trend going in which the road team was 17-7 against the spread in all of their games this year.
