Earliest Cash - Rickenbach NBA Game #558 Tuesday 8* Toronto Raptors (-) vs Cleveland Cavaliers @ 8:05 ET - The Raptors come into this series with some extra rest while the Cavaliers are off of a grueling 7-game series with the Pacers. Not only did Indiana push Cleveland to the brink, the Pacers also outplayed the Cavs for much of the series. The Cavaliers were held under 45% from the field in 6 of the 7 games! The Pacers actually shot 48.1% in the series and that included making at least 45% of their shots in all 7 games against Cleveland. Of course the Cavaliers defense has been under fire for much of this season as they have allowed 109.2 points per game in their 89 games (including 1st round of these playoffs). Toronto got into "playoff mode" as their series got deeper versus the Wizards. The Raptors won the final two games and, over the last 3 games Toronto held Washington to only 42.5% from the field. The Raptors were swept out of the post-season by the Cavs last year in the 2nd round. This season certainly will play out much differently and Toronto should take Game 1 in convincing fashion. The Raptors are 37-7 SU at home this season (including playoffs) and the Cavaliers have covered just 1 of their 7 post-season games. Also, Cleveland is on an 11-19 ATS run versus teams with a winning record! 8* TORONTO
