Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Warriors and Clippers Increase NBA Playoff Betting Odds Credibility

January 15th, 2019 NBA Basketball, Sportsbook

At the beginning of the last few seasons Golden State has been the top chalk with NBA playoff betting odds.  It stands to reason that the Warriors would top the futures board.  After all they have won three of the last four NBA championships.  Yet that success on the hardwood has not translated into profits.  The Warriors simply draw too much public betting action based on their championship “brand.”  Counter to that is the great value offered by the Clippers.  Los Angeles is not nearly as popular with the average gambler.  This serves to make their prices more reasonable.
