Can Bettors Profit From Fatigue in the NBA Playoffs?

May 25, 2018 3:34 PM EDT

“He looked a little tired to me,” said Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue about LeBron James.

When asked if he was fatigued, LeBron responded, “I think everybody at this point is tired or worn down.” James has played 98 games this season, two shy of his career high set in 2010-11.

The NBA season is long, with 82 games that include back-to-backs and road trips crisscrossing the country. There is no reset button when the playoffs tip off, and all those games take a toll on the players, even LeBron.

 

As player exhaustion becomes a storyline in the postseason it also creates a gambling opportunity. How can bettors profit from fatigue in the NBA playoffs? I’ve identified a winning betting system with a match for Cavaliers-Celtics Game 6 (Friday at 8:30 p.m. ET).
