With the first match ending with an overtime over result, the total was set at 202 points heading towards game 2. This time a 95-93 win for the Cavaliers locked up a 1-1 for the over/under bets so for in this year’s Finals.
After the last under result and the first game only going to an over result because of overtime it was no surprise that the new over/under total was lowered down to a more modest 195 points. This, however, did not affect proceedings much and the game ended 96-91 to Cleveland. Bringing in another under result.
Game 4 brings a further reduction to the total – to 193 points. Again, though, this did not affect how the under bettors faired come the end of the four quarters. The under tally taken to 3 from 4 games after the Warriors won game 4 103-82. Even the one over result only got there because of overtime.
Game 5 came extremely close to breaking the streak of under results but narrowly missed out on the 195.5 points total in a 104-91 win for the Warriors. Moving them into a 3-2 lead overall in the Finals moving into the last game.
In the final, deciding game, it’s no surprise that the total came in over for the first time inside normal game time. Given that both teams had everything to play for at this stage, the 105-97 thriller, took the total well over the required 194 points mark.
With 6 games being played in the NBA Finals, 4 of them cashed in the under bet and of the 2 that brought in the over, only one of them could do it inside the four quarters. The other needed overtime to be able to reach the over.
