Cleveland to win v Boston & Lebron James to score 3 or more 3 pointers

Basketball - NBA Basketball - 24 May 01:35

Lebron James had one of his worst ever playoff outings in the previous match up only scoring 11 points on 4 of 13 shooting. This led to the Cavs blowing a 20 point lead and losing for the first time this post season. I can't see Cleveland & Lebron not bouncing back from that. There are two parts to this bet - Firstly Cleveland to win the match. Cleveland are priced as short as 1/40 in places, and shouldn't lose this match.

Before the previous match up Cleveland had won 10 straight playoff games including 2 against Boston, in Boston. Cleveland is 5-2 against Boston this season, including leading this series 2-1. Cleveland is 31-10 at home compared to Boston's 23-18 away, which shows that the home form of Cleveland is stronger than the away form of Boston. I believe that Cleveland will win comfortably in this match up (See my other tip) as Boston are without their key scorer Isaiah Thomas.

The second part to this is Lebron James to score 3 or more 3 pointers. This might sound silly because he didn't score one in the previous match up, but here is why I like it. Lebron James has upped his 3 point shooting since the postseason begun. In the regular season he shot .363 from 3 point range, while in the playoffs he is shooting .429.

He is shooting an average of 2.5 3 pointers out of 5.7 attempted. He has had 4 games with more than 3 3 pointers, and shot 4/6 from 3 in game 2 against Boston. Lebron also shot more than 3 3 pointers 14 times in regular season. I believe Lebron will have a huge bounce back game after his disappointing game 3, and I feel he will make a statement both inside the paint and with his 3 point shooting! The odds are good for this to win considering James is averaging 2.5 3 pointers per game in the playoffs and Cleveland are such short favourites to win the match
