Result: Win

3-Unit Play. #507 Take Boston/Cleveland OVER 206 (7:30 p.m. EST, Saturday)

It's a shame we couldn't have torn into the weak opening line here. This total came out at 200 and was pounded by sharp action, driving it all the way up to 206. There is still a lot of value on this play, however, as I think this game is going to play with a wide open pace. Cleveland has been eliminated from the playoffs and Boston has been just playing out the string for awhile. Since neither team has anything to play for there is zero motivation for either team to dig in and play defense. Instead, players on both teams are just looking to pad some stats and put up some numbers. This total is a red flag on its own, since this is by far the highest total posted in the last 10 meetings between these two teams. The last meeting went 'over', with 203 points scored, and I think they'll surpass that today. Six of Boston's last eight games have played 'over' the total and the 'over' is 7-3 in Cleveland's last 10 games. We don't see either team locking down on defense tonight so we'll play this one 'over'.
