Bookie vs. Bettor - Celtics vs. Cavs Game 4 - 2018 NBA Playoffs

It's amazing how we are having such a tough time finding agreement between some of the sharper books and the more recreational outs when it comes to the NBA.  This has prevented us from making many picks during the later stages of the Playoffs and today appears to be no exception.

Cleveland will enter this game as a -6.5 to -7 favorite hosting the Celtics.  According to the NBA Betting Power Ratings, the Cavaliers should be no more than a -2.5 favorite.

The overlays and underlays have been especially extreme in this series and, indeed, it is interesting to note the substantial margins of victories in each of the first three games.  Boston won the first two by no fewer than 13 points while Cleveland destroyed the Celtics at home in Game 3.  

The home team in this Playoffs series has won in dominating fashion. 

To date, Boston bookies have been getting creamed regardless of whether they opt to use a Pay Per Head solution...and it doesn't help that they have been dealing with the Patriots these past few years while the Red Sox continue their solid play this Major League Baseball season.  The Celtics enter this series an astonishing 61-34-2 Against The Spread.

Cleveland area bookies could have gotten away without use of a Pay Per Head platform, though they'd probably be even richer if they had the added ability to provide clients with LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING and an online casino. It is not every day you see a team going this deep in the Playoffs that are just 37-58-1 Against The Spread.

Our NBA record will remain 11-3-1 (78.6%) at least another day since our resident handicapper Tony Caliente won't have a play here.
