Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs between the Cavs vs. Celtics featured a line of Cleveland -1.5This one tips off at 3:30 pm EST Sunday May 13.

The NBA Betting Power Ratings suggest a line of Boston -4.

Early line movement was all over the map from opening at either Boston -1 or Cleveland -1, with most books at Cavs -1.5 by Friday afternoon.

92% of the early action was on Cleveland and the books were certainly moving the line accordingly, though there appeared to be little urgency.

Cleveland is 7-3 in the series Straight Up, though Boston is 4-2 Against The Spread in the last six meetings.

The Cavaliers are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Boston.

Cleveland is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest.

This is going to be yet another difficult NBA game to make a play on.
