The Highlights

  • A second steam move was triggered on the Cavaliers, moving their line from +4 to +3.5.
  • The line has now moved from +5 to +3.5 despite the Warriors getting the majority of the bets.

We’re a couple hours away from the 9 p.m. ET tip-off in Cleveland, where the Cavs are hosting the Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Bettors have had since Sunday to place their wagers, but sharp action has continued to hit Cleveland throughout the day.


The line was flipping between Golden State -4.5 and -5 for the first couple of days, but has gradually moved toward the Cavaliers since this morning.

Between 6:30 p.m. ET and 6:45 p.m. ET, the line reached new lows across the market, as Cleveland made the jump from +4 to +3.5.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals triggered a second move from the offshore sportsbook Buckeye at +4. Buckeye is considered one of the sharpest books on the offshore market along with Pinnacle. Right now, the Warriors are commanding 53% of bets and dollars, but this signal makes it clear that several professional bettors continue to like Cleveland plus the points in this massively bet game.
