Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics Prediction 05/15/2018

Backing Boston sets up takers for a true zig-zag situation. Heading into Game One, the Cavaliers were prone to a massive overreaction after they pulled off the sweep. Now, much of the public will likely head in the other direction given how prolific Boston played against Cleveland. This sets up a situation now to take the Cavaliers who stock plummeted through the fall after the nasty loss. The bottom line is LeBron James showed little concern after the Game One result, so chances are you can expect Cleveland to respond and tie the series up here with the hype off of them.
