(NBA) Golden State vs. Cleveland, 04/15/2021 8:00 PM, Score: 119 - 101
Total: 224.00 | -108.00 Over
Result: Loss
I'm playing on GSW/Clev OVER the total. When these teams met out West, the O/U line was 227.5 and they combined for 227. The Cavs only managed 98 though, as scoring on the road has been tough for them this season. Playing at home, when they average a lot more ppg (108.4) than they do on the road, the Cavs should more effectively contribute to tonight's combined total. Note that the Cavs also allow more ppg at home than they do on the road. Additionally, note that when these teams met here last season, the O/U line was 223.5 and they combined for 243. The Warriors put up 131 while the Cavs averaged 112. Off an impressive 147-point effort last night, the Warriors are again seemingly firing on all cylinders. They're averaging 123.4 ppg their last five. While the Cavs shut down offensiely challenged Charlotte last night, a game which stayed below the total, their previous five games had all finished above the number. I'm expecting another high-scoring affair, the OVER moving to 7-2-1 the past 10 times that the Cavs checked in off a double-digit win.
