The Celtics have taken the first two games of this series by a combined 38 points. The Cavs are -41 with LeBron James on the court. JR Smith has scored four points.

So naturally, the Celtics are a 6-point underdog tonight.

Wait, what?


Yes, despite Boston’s two convincing performances to start the series, sportsbooks are still giving a significant edge to the Cavs in Game 3 (8:30 p.m. ET). As you might expect, sharps have had something to say about that.
