The Cavaliers had the early 2-1 lead in this series following its stunning 96-91 upset in Game 3 as two-point home favorites, but it has been all Golden State since then. The Warriors hammered Cleveland 103-82 as four-point road favorites in Game 4 and this past Sunday night they rode a strong second-half performance to a 104-91 victory as 9.5-point home favorites to take that all-important 3-2 series lead.

The betting odds for the series price in this matchup have been all over the board. Before the opening tip in Game 1, Golden State was listed by 5Dimes USA online Sportsbooks as a -235 series favorite, with Cleveland set as a +195 underdog. When the Cavaliers took that early lead they dropped to being just a +105 underdog with the betting odds on the Warriors set at -125. Sunday’s win blew these numbers out of the water and you would now have to risk a hefty -1375 to wager on Golden State. The odds now have Cleveland listed as a +900 underdog to win the final two games of this series.

The NBA basketball betting trends for Tuesday’s Game 6 tend to heavily favor the Warriors as well with a 12-5 record against the spread in their last 17 games against Cleveland. The total has stayed UNDER in three of the first five games in this series and Sunday’s Game 5 ended as a PUSH on a closing total line of 195. One thing favoring Cleveland could be the home court advantage. The home team in this matchup has gone 5-2 both SU and ATS in the last seven meetings.

As far as the star power in this matchup, you have to give credit to league-MVP Stephen Curry for his performance this past Sunday night. He scored a team-high 37 points while going 13-for-23 from the field and 7-for-13 from three-point range. Overall, LeBron James has been almost unstoppable for Cleveland. He has scored 39 points or more in four of the first five games, and in a losing cause on Sunday night, he posted his second triple-double in this series with 40 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.
