4* NBA OVER/UNDER KNOCKOUT
Cleveland vs. Indiana,
12/30/2011 19:00 EDT,
Score: 91 - 98
Total: -110/+192½ Over
I believe the oddsmakers have set this total way to low for tonight's game. The Pacers are a perfect 2-0, but have shot just 38% from the field. There is simply too much offensive talent on that team for them to continue to shoot that poorly.
The Cavaliers are a much better offensive team than they were a year ago, thanks to rookie point guard Kyrie Irving. The Cavaliers come in averaging 100.5 ppg on the season, but I have a feeling the public still views this team from how they played a season ago.
The total in this game should be a lot closer to 200 than 193! Adding even more strength to this play is the fact that the OVER is 5-2 in Cavaliers last 7 road games and 5-2 in Pacers last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. BET THE OVER 193!
