Analysis

THE Celtics are one game away from an NBA Finals appearance as they head to Cleveland for Game 6 of this Eastern Conference Finals series.

Brad Stevens is doing his best to exploit every weakness in this Cavaliers lineup and he’s having success in doing so, which is made easier by the fact that there are more than just a couple.

No way LeBron is getting eliminated at home. He will be on a mission to force a game 7 and this will be extremely fun to watch. The Cavs play well with their backs against the wall. The home team is 5-0 against the spread in the last 5 meetings between these two teams. Take the Cavs tonight.?

Analysis

There's little doubt the time-honored "zig-zag" theory will likely be the prevailing sentiment in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. With good reason, considering the home team has won by blowout in every contest, so why should it change now? It might not, but the Celtics have some favorable components that point toward them breaking the trend. Their youthful club is more prepared to play on just one day's rest, and they are 9-3 ATS in such spots. Fatigue appeared to be an issue for LeBron James and some of the Cavaliers in Game 5. When you factor in the pressure of an elimination game on their home court, the value lies in grabbing the points.

Analysis

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in a win or go home situation on Friday. The Cavaliers are big favorites coming back home. Look for Cleveland to win this game, and force a game 7 on Sunday, but not enough to cover the spread. Boston competes, but the Cavaliers do not cover the spread in this game.

Analysis

Cleveland is amazing at home and uncompetitive on the road in this series. They haven't lost at home since April 14 and have won their last three by 30, 9 and 35 points. There's something comforting about the home court for Kyle Korver, J.R. Smith and Co. It's very hard to imagine LeBron James allowing the season to end at home, as well. Look for another sizeable Cavs win to force a Game 7.

Analysis

The Cavs are a completely different team at home. They've won their last three playoff games by an average of nearly 25 points, while they've lost their last three by an average of 17. Look for the Cavs to find their form once again and emphatically force a Game 7. Lay the points.
