Bookie vs. Bettor - Cavs vs. Celtics Game 1 Updated

We have decided to pull the trigger on this one after all as the books have moved Cleveland to -2 and are actually moving back to -1.5 despite all the action coming in on Cleveland.   THIS ONE STARTS 3:30 PM EST SUNDAY MAY 13

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

We can't help but think the books should have little problem with moving this line beyond -2 if they really believed Cleveland was going to win here.

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.

Yesterday we had a loss with the Miami Heat, who kept it close until the final minutes, and a push with the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The latter did pay out for most gamblers as we had them +3 and they lost by three points against Minnesota.
