Warriors still NBA favorite
The NBA has hit its All-Star Break starting today. Here is an updated look at the odds to win this season’s NBA Finals.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Golden State Warriors remain the favorite to win the title, as they are getting odds of -130 to win. Other short odds are the Cleveland Cavaliers (+300), the San Antonio Spurs (+325) and the Oklahoma City Thunder (+1300).
The Warriors are the defending NBA champs and currently have the best record in the NBA at 48-4. Golden State is currently on pace to set a new record for most wins in a season. They have yet to lose at home this season.
The Cavaliers are 38-14 this season and leading the Eastern Conference by three games. Cleveland, the defending Eastern Conference champs, are the clear favorite in the East, but can they beat the winner of the West?
San Antonio is 45-8 on the season and second in the Western Conference, 3.5 games behind Golden State. If not for the Warriors, the Spurs would be heavily talked about, as they are having a tremendous season. They last won the title in 2014.
The Thunder are 40-14 on the season, currently third in the Western Conference. Oklahoma City is 9 games out of first in the West but they finally have consistently had Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant healthy this season. OKC has never won the NBA Finals.
