The Cavs are considerable favorites against the Raptors but the odds have come down since opening, and also from the lookahead line before the plaoyffs. Here were the lookahead series prices before the playoffs started:

BOS -245 / WAS +175
CLE -750 / TOR +450
SA -280 / HOU +200
GS -900 / LAC +500
GS -1500 / UTAH +700

Celtics/Wizards and Spurs/Rockets is tighter than anticipated, but there’s still been line movement on Boston and San Antonio since officially opening on Saturday. The movement on Boston appears to be sharp, as more than 75% of series bets at BetDSI is on Washington. Same goes for San Antonio, as they’ve gone from -195 to -265 despite the majority of tickets on Houston. Here are the bet splits for each series at BetDSI:

79% Washington, 21% Boston
55% Toronto, 45% Cleveland
83% Houston, 17% San Antonio
85% Utah, 15% Golden State
