NBA 17 Opening Day
A great way to open the NBA season is a revenge game that we all expect. The first game of this season happened to fall on the Celtics and Cavaliers (Tuesday, 8 AM CT). Well, the season’s schedule was released before Irving was traded to the Celts, and it’s just the perfect match to kick-start the season.
Revenge games get fans excited and on the edge of their seats. Especially in this game, where Irving’s drama about his former team and how he left the Cavs. It’s interesting how everything will play out. But, to the more important stuff, the NBA odds: It’s expected that both of these teams will shoot the lights out of the Q Arena and logged with 3.5 points in the spread and an over/under total score of 212 in most Bitcoin sportsbooks. Even though Brad Stevens was able to load up his offensive arsenal with the additions of Irving and Hayward. He will not forget about his defensive mentality and seeks to prioritize defense over scoring. So, keep in mind that Stevens will attempt to lock down the Cavs’ loaded offensive roster with tight defense. With that being said, expect the total scores to be lower than 212 for both Eastern teams.
The second game of Opening Day will not go unnoticed. Right after the Cavs and Celtics’ bloodbath, on the other side of the coast in Oakland, a new and upgraded Houston faces the golden beast Warriors. Expect this to be a showdown of offensive gauntlets as both teams score on each other hoop after hoop. The game has an over/under total score of 232 and picking the over here seems logical. Both teams are expected score like rain pouring down during storms.
