NBA Finals Odds 5/13/19, Warriors favored entering conference finals

The 2019 NBA Playoffs are down to their final four teams, with the conference finals beginning on Tuesday. Here’s an updated look at the odds to win the NBA Finals this season.

According to the latest oddsmakers, the Golden State Warriors are the favorite, as they are listed with -150 odds to win. Other odds to win are the Milwaukee Bucks (+225), the Toronto Raptors (+800) and the Portland Trail Blazers (+1300).

Bet on the NBA Playoffs

The Warriors are the two-time defending NBA champions and they have the home-court advantage for the Western Conference Finals. Golden State is coming off a 6-game series win over the Houston Rockets, but the team also lost Kevin Durant to a calf injury for an unknown amount of time. He could miss the early stages of the conference finals against the Portland Trail Blazers. Still, the Warriors are listed as a -500 favorite for their series against Portland. Golden State has won the NBA championship six times in franchise history.

The Milwaukee Bucks are the top seed in the East and they have the home-court advantage for the rest of the playoffs. Milwaukee is 8-1 in the postseason thus far after beating the Boston Celtics in five games in the conference semifinals. Milwaukee is the favorite in the Eastern Conference Finals, listed with -265 odds. The Bucks have won just one championship in franchise history, which came back in 1971.

Toronto is the second seed in the East and the Raptors are coming off an emotional 7-game series win over Philadelphia in the conference semifinals. Kawhi Leonard hit a series-winning shot at the buzzer last night to advance the Raptors to the conference finals against Milwaukee. The Raptors are listed as a +225 underdog for the series. Toronto has never won a conference title or NBA championship.

The Blazers are the third seed in the West. They are coming off a 7-game series win over the Denver Nuggets in the conference semifinals, winning Game 7 on the road. The Blazers are a +405 underdog for the Western Conference Finals. Portland has won one championship in franchise history. That came back in 1977.
