NBA Betting: East Finals – Game 4: CLEVELAND CAVALIERS at TORONTO RAPTORS (5/23)


East Finals – Game 4

(America’s Bookie Line: Cavs -6, Total 197) — Have the Toronto Raptors solved all their problems with that Game 3 victory? No. Can we count on the Cavaliers to shoot 35% again, including just 4-28 combined from Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love? Probably not. But the fact remains that Bismack Biyombo has created a legitimate down-low presence for the Raptors, and 26 rebounds with four blocks in Game 3 screams that out. This magnifies the problems created by Cleveland suddenly coming back down to earth from three-point territory, as the Cavs have gone 34% in this series. In other words, if they need a “Plan B,” it’s a little harder now. And on top of that, it looks as if Jonas Valanciunas is going to suit up and be available for Toronto, which would give them more flexibility up front. Some guys are cold, for sure, but at least DeMar DeRozan (31 points on Saturday) is hitting 49% for the series, after going 35.5% in the previous two series, and Cory Joseph (14 points in Game 3) is providing some valuable stuff off the bench.
