Cleveland Cavaliers vs Indiana Pacers Prediction and Betting Tips
- Updated: 18th April 2018
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Indiana Pacers – NBA: LeBron James’ Cavs have
started these play-offs in the worst possible fashion, with an expressive loss at home against the Pacers by 80-98.
That despite playing a lot of basketball are far from being amongst the top 10 teams in the NBA this season, in my opinion.
There is a lot of James for such a weak team. Tyrone Lue being on the bench or not doesn’t make any difference. James is more of a coach than him. With or without attitude, he is the one that moves the other players.
I think that players like Kevin Love, Jeff Green, Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood, Larry Nance Jr or even a Tristan Thompson or Calderón will have to be a part of this game’s plan.
80 points at home against the Pacers was some unimaginable on the 1st game. I believe that King James and company will do much better in this game.
The team led by the coach Nate McMillan is on a roll after a great victory in game 1.
Despite having value in players like Victor Oladipo, Myles Turner, Darren Collison or even Bogdan Bogdanovic, their biggest strength comes from their teamplay, that they can take advantage to the maximum and then have some players who have more quality standing out. For this game, there aren’t any absences on the side of the team from Indianapolis.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Indiana Pacers – Betting Tip and Prediction:
To summarize, I think that the game ended up being strange, not only because the Cavs lost easily, but also because of the low amount of points that were scored. I believe that on this game 2, the Cavaliers will go all-out to recover and tie this series.
Between a favourable result to the Cavs at half-time and an Over on the total points.
I think the most reliable bet here will be the second, because playing in front of their own crowd, the Cavs will play to dominate, and that will mean winning and scoring a lot of points, like it has been their characteristic throughout the season.
As for the Pacers like the good team they are, will also know how to take advantage of the hunger of the home side and will also try to match their pace.
