Should Bettors Be Wary of Tired LeBron in the NBA Playoffs?
Following Sunday’s Game 7 closeout win against Indiana, LeBron James revealed his level of exhaustion in the postgame press conference. Playoff series that go the distance are grueling, and King James is certainly feeling the effects after carrying the Cavaliers into the conference semifinals.
As bettors, we’re always looking for an edge, and it’s reasonable to question whether LeBron can pull off another superhuman task of single-handedly willing the Cavs into the conference finals, especially against tougher competition. (Cleveland is +166 to win the series against Toronto at Bookmaker.eu.)
To answer this question, I fired up the software at BetLabsSports.com and ran the numbers to determine whether bettors can use LeBron and the Cavs’ fatigue when betting Tuesday’s Game 1 at Toronto (8 p.m. ET, TNT).
