NBA Finals: Warriors at Cavs Game 4 Betting Preview and Picks


When Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City for the
greener pastures of the Bay Area last summer, the landscape of the NBA was tilted on its
axis. The thought of a starting lineup featuring
Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green immediately put fear into the rest of
the NBA. It turns out we didn’t know the half of
how good they would be. Sportsbooks opened the Dubs as 6.5 point favorites
with a total of 229 for the contest. After overcoming a six point deficit in the
dying minutes of their 118-113 win in Game 3 which was capped by a go ahead 3 pointer
from Durant over LeBron James, the Warriors improved to a perfect 15-0 in the postseason. No NBA team has ever gone undefeated in the
playoffs, which is really saying something when you consider how many dynasties we’ve
seen in this league. Durant knew this was his time to shine heading
into the Finals, and he hasn’t disappointed. The Slim Reaper scored 14 of his 31 points
in the fourth quarter of Game 3 and is averaging 34 points on 56 percent shooting in the series. Curry has been no slouch either, averaging
28 points, 9.7 boards and nine assists in the series. While he said he didn’t know what he was
doing, Curry even pretended to defecate on the Cavs court after Durant hit the aforementioned
dagger. That’s cold. Among the 170 individual postseason runs in
which a player appeared in at least 10 games and averaged 25 or more points, Curry and
Durant’s true shooting percentages rank fourth and first. How do you stop that? Here’s what we know: you don’t. And Cleveland is learning that the hard way. I’m not expecting the Cavs to go down without
a fight, but this series is all but over at this point. After all, no team has ever come back from
a 3-0 deficit in the playoffs. As far as a prediction goes, I’m liking
both the OVER and the Warriors spread. Two of the three games in this series have
gone above the closing total and oddsmakers can’t set it high enough for the fireworks
both squads possess. For all of the best NBA Finals betting info,
