NBA Playoffs action will reach a dramatic climax with game 6 sportsbook betting action between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic. NBA Playoffs fans saw Cleveland avoid elimination with a game 5 sportsbook betting win and cover at home but now the Cavs must win at Orlando or be eliminated.
The Orlando Magic have been one of the surprise stories of the NBA Playoffs. They were given up for dead in their sportsbook betting series last round against the Boston Celtics but rallied from a 2-3 deficit to win the series and end up in the eastern conference finals. Orlando is 10-8 against the spread in the NBA Playoffs this year. They have had the hot hand as of late as they have covered the spread in 10 out of their last 14 games in the NBA Playoffs.
Orlando’s main weapon in the NBA Playoffs is center Dwight Howard, who has emerged as one of the best and most dominant players in the game. Howard is the leading rebound man in the NBA Playoffs with an average of 15.5 boards per game. He is averaging 20.6 points per game for the NBA Playoffs and is a force on both ends of the court. So far in this NBA Playoffs series he has scored under 24 points just once in the five games against Cleveland.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost just 4 out of 13 games against the spread so far this post season but have been cold as of late with just one payoff in their last 6 games. Defense is Cleveland’s team strength as they rank 2nd in the NBA for playoff defense allowing just 88.0 points per game. LeBron James, of course, is the main asset for Cleveland as he leads the NBA in playoff scoring with an average of 36.1 points per game. James is no ball hog, however, as he is also averaging 7.3 assists per game. James is the complete player and is not afraid to mix it up as evidenced by his team best 9.3 rebounds per game in the 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.
