Pick #1 – Cleveland Cavaliers at Toronto Raptors
Suffice it to say its nice to have the NBA back and we get another great look as we see the Cleveland Cavaliers (1-0) versus the Toronto Raptors (1-0) in a square that sees two teams that came flying out of the gate. Each squad has no major concerns injury wise with the Raptors Jared Sullinger being top of list but these two are clicking with all starters playing above average. The smart money is leading the way here as this opening 202.5 NBA has now rocketed to a 206 OVER as we get two teams ready for a barn burner on a Friday night in Canada where fans and players alike are going to be pumped. The total has not only gone OVER in 5 of Toronto's last 6 games at home but also the total has gone OVER in 4 of Cleveland's last 6 games when playing on the road against Toronto so we know the Cavs do not might the quick flight to Canada for a throw down. The offensive head to head averaged numbers over the last 10 for these two teams when they meet are 107.3 for the Cavaliers and 95.60 for the Raptors so were right where we need to be as the Raptors dropped 109 last game so its clear they are on an upswing this year in points scored per game average at home. The over/under for this NBA spread total started off at 202.5 and is now on a 3.5 move uptick so the money is letting us know once again that the OVER is looking like it has a ton of value here with Lebron, Love, Irving, Lowry and DeRozen looking at the peaks of their game. The public consensus for this game is at a very strong 74% towards the OVER so there are a lot of people seeing the same thing we are here. The computer predicted outcome of this opener is 204 but the way these two teams came out to start the season we have to think the 206 should easily get there for the OVER.
