NBA Playoffs action resumes for those betting sports with game two of the eastern conference series between Atlanta and Cleveland. NBA Playoffs fans saw a powerful game one win by Cleveland as they gave those betting sports with them an easy payoff in a 99-72 win as 11.5-point home chalks.
The Cleveland Cavaliers entered the NBA Playoffs as one of the favorites to go all the way in 2009. Those betting sports have been "loading up" on the Cavaliers the past few weeks and with good reason as they are one of the hottest commodities on the board so far in the NBA Playoffs.
The Cavaliers are a perfect 5-0 both straight up and against the spread for the NBA Playoffs so far. Including their last 4 games of the regular season they have covered 9 consecutive games against the spread entering this game two matchup of the NBA Playoffs.
A big part of Cleveland's success in the NBA Playoffs can be attributed to their defense, which is the top ranked unit in the league so far this post season. Cleveland is allowing just 76.8-points per game so far in the NBA Playoffs, which is almost 10-points per game better than the second best team; Denver. The Cavaliers are also the top rebounding team so far in the NBA Playoffs. Offensively, Cleveland ranks 8th in the NBA for post season which may not seem all that great but it is sufficient enough when you factor in their defense and rebounding.
Of course you cannot mention the Cavaliers without mentioning superstar LeBron James, the 2009 NBA most valuable player and one of the most dominant assets in the game. Against Atlanta in the opener James had 34 points and 10 rebounds, along with 4 steals! So far in the playoffs he is averaging 32.4-points per game. In the regular season James led Cleveland in scoring, assists, rebounds, blocks, steals, and field goal percentage!
Atlanta has split their 8 playoff games against the spread and is 1-3 against the number on the road so far this post season.

Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
