Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Free Pick 04/19/15
The Boston Celtics are travelling to Cleveland for an Eastern Conference battle against the Cavs for Game 1 in a best of seven series.
The Celtics have won eight of their last 10 SU and are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. They’ve been very effective on the road of late going 5-0 SU and 5-0 ATS in their last five away from home and are coming into this contest filled with confidence currently riding a 6-game winning streak. They hosted Milwaukee in their last game of the regular season and won 105-100 despite coming into that game as 6-point dog. The Cavs have won seven of their last 10 SU but are only 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and are 4-1 SU but only 2-3 ATS in their last five at home. Their last game of the regular season was here at Cleveland against the Wizards. They went into that game as 7.5-point favorites but the Wizards took them to OT, where they Cavs finally prevailed 113-108 but obviously failed to cover the spread.
The Celtics are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and won both games of a home-and-home on April 10/12 and demolished the Cavaliers 117-78 in the last meeting.
