Why are the Warriors the NBA Finals Betting Favorites?

Warriors the NBA Finals betting favoritesPeople who bet on basketball will be favoring the Golden State Warriors over the Cleveland Cavaliers to win game 1 of the NBA championship series – and the entire series as well. For instance, at SBG Global sportsbook, the lines run thus:

Why are the Cavaliers the NBA Finals Betting Underdogs?

Cleveland Cavaliers Underdogs for the NBA FInalsSimply put, the Cleveland Cavaliers are the NBA Finals betting on basketball underdogs because they are playing the Golden State Warriors. The Cavs would be the favorites against any other team, but GS isn’t just any other team, as Curry and Co. proved against the Oklahoma City Thunder. But while the Warriors may have never encounter a record they didn’t shatter, Cleveland actually has the better playoff record (12-2). Moreover, the Cavaliers outscored opponents by a combined 177 points in the first three playoffs rounds – tying the ’85 Lakers for the 2nd largest margin heading into the NBA championship series.

Updated Odds for the Cavaliers vs. Warriors NBA Finals

NBA Finals Odds UpdateBetting on basketball is a fickle business. For a while there – when the Golden State Warriors were struggling 1-3 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, to be more specific – the Cleveland Cavaliers were briefly the favorites to win the NBA championship; the first time that GS were not the favorite in the entire season. But lo and behold, Stephen Curry managed to out-Curry himself and led the Warriors to an impressive comeback, win three in a row, and finally overcome the Thunder in game 7 of an epic Western Conference Final series.

Betting on NBA Finals: Cavaliers vs. Warriors

Best Sportsbook to Bet on the NBA Finals Games between Cavaliers and WarriorsIf you’re betting on basketball, do not adjust your TV set. The 2016 NBA Finals starring the Cleveland Cavaliers versus the Golden State Warriors is not a rerun. However, instead of a sequel of last year’s championship game, it might be more of a remake. The Warriors are the favorites (-250) over the Cavs (+210) at SBG Global sportsbook to win game 1 on Thursday, June 2nd at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. Same as last year, the format will be 2–2–1–1–1 (Games 1, 2, and if necessary 5 and 7 at Golden State, and games 3, 4, and if necessary 6 at Cleveland).

Raptors tie series, Jurassic Park to remain open

Raptors tie series 2-2The possibility for an online betting upset came into fruition last night as the Toronto Raptors wagged their fingers (literally!) at the Cavaliers and said: “Not in our house”. This means that the series is going to six games at least and that Jurassic Park will remain open for business for said crucial game at Toronto. DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry combined for 67 points, and pretty much demonstrated that they are up to the challenge and are not going to let Cleveland walk into the NBA Finals so easily.
