Cavaliers vs. Warriors Game 2 betting – NBA Finals odds & free tips

NBA Finals

NBA FinalsGame 3 — Sunday June 3, 8:00 PM EST at ORACLE Arena Oakland, CA

At Bovada the Warriors are a big 12.5-point home favorite with the total sitting at 215.5.

The Warriors lead this series 1-0.

The Warriors have to feel a little lucky after their 124-114 Game 1 win in OT.

Not only did George Hill miss a free throw with 4.5 seconds left to put the Cavaliers in front in the NBA Finals opener, but after J.R. Smith got an unlikely offensive rebound he took the ball to near half court, rather than putting up a shot that could have won his side the game.

To add some salt to Cleveland’s wounds, a late charge was reversed and Kevin Durant hit two crucial free throws to put his side in front.

Cleveland did not shoot as well as Golden State in Game 1 (44.4% to 51.1%), shot a lower 3-pt FG% (36.1% to 27%) and they had four more turnovers (12-8), but they dominated the offensive boards, grabbing 19 of them while the Dubs only had four.

The Cavs took the loss in Game 1 despite the fact that LeBron James went for 51 points. Kevin Love chimed in with 21 points and J.R. Smith was the only other player that went for double figures, tallying 10 points.

Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and Klay Thomson combined for 79 points in Game 1. Curry and Thompson were a combined 10/21 from 3-pt range, while Durant missed six of his seven 3-pointers.

The Warriors had more balance in Game 1, with five players going for double figures.

The Cavs out-scored the Warriors by six points in the 4th quarter to force overtime, but were outscored 17-7 in the extra period.

2015 NBA Finals MVP, Andre Iguodala, missed Game 1 with a knee injury and is a question mark for Game 2.

The Warriors have won 18 of their last 19 playoff games at home.

Including Game 1 of this series, the Warriors have won all three games facing the Cavs this season.

A little luck never hurts and the Warriors know that after escaping Game 1 with a win.

The Cavs had their chances and will try and bounce back and steal one on the road in Game 2.

The Cavs covered the spread in Game 1 and while they may lose again, they will cover the big 12.5 point spread at Bovada in Game 2.
