    I was thinking the same as road2perdition... im starting to think the Cavs have a decent shot at sweeping. Before you put anymore money on the raptors i just want to highlight that you had previously thought the Cavs would win game 3 at home. I think just purely capping this matchup the Raptors just dont have what it takes to stop LeBron.

    Im torn with these remaining games because I dont want to fall into the trap of thinking the Raptors have to win at least 1.... they did get swept last year.

    low risk high reward my friend...

    ill take a loss of 8 units if they cannot win 1 game. and would still be + for the series.. but I just dont see the raptors playing as shitty as they did game 2 for g3 and g4... I could be wrong because lowry and derozan are highly scared of LBJ.. but they should still have some fight in themself. I hope.

    I'll be on Cavs. Having said that, tough to sweep a still decent Raps team. Cavs probably win the series 4-1. But which game will Raps win? This one or the next? A sweep wouldn't be surprising.

    Oh those baby Dinosaurs..same old same old.
    Didn't everyone think the Raptors were gonna dominate GM1 & GM2??? Public perception my friend.....

    because I don't see the raptors getting swept, so at +155 or better, its worth a shot

    Cavs dominate Raptors in Toronto and only -4.5 favorites in Cleveland? I'm taking Cleveland moneyline and if I lose I'll double up each time until Cavs win. Expensive I know but tell me how I lose this bet if I manage my money accordingly?

    if you have a healthy sized BR, then it would def work, but there is more risk in doing that (higher chance of winnings too) than just betting toronto to avoid sweep since they will be + odds both games.

    i can't in good conscience do that. I believe there's a better chance of Raptors getting swept than Cleveland cleaning out my bankroll by not winning on the moneyline again in this series. I am going to go ahead and work out the math with my bankroll and do it. Good luck to you on your plays also.

    Congrats on the big win on the spread. That took guts in my opinion. Nicely done. I was kicking myself for not taking Cavs -4.5 when they were up double digits all game but that ending made me relieved that I stuck with the moneyline.

    Demar getting benched at the end. Cringe at his face and him being the only one not happy and jumping up and down when that big 3 tied the game late.

    6-2 +26 units

    Game 4:
    Warriors ML (-235)

    7.05 units to win 3 units


    Adding another 7.05 units to win 3 units


    Total of 14.1 to win 6 units on the warriors ML tomorrow.

    I think they easily win by DD, but I will play it safe and take ML for a decent chunk.. gl

    thanks buddy, yeah I know this cavs team pretty well, and they choke really hard at home in the 2H when they have a big lead at HT..

    can't wait to see the series price on cavs vs warriors.
