Just hours ahead of Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors are the odds-on favorite to win the championship over the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s easy to understand why. The reigning champions just came back from down 3-1 to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in an exciting 7-game series and broke the Bulls' record for most regular season wins.
The betting website Bovada also has the odds for the Finals MVP, with Steph Curry currently leading the way at 4-5 odds to win the award. LeBron James and Klay Thompson were the next likely candidates at 2-1 and 5-1, respectively.
As for the reigning Finals MVP (Andre Iguodala), he is currently given 30-1 odds to win the award. Pretty impressive for someone who has come off the bench all season.

If you really want to go for the big money, you can also select Matthew Dellavedova at 250-1.
You'll get 250/1 odds if you're betting Matthew Dellevedova to win Finals MVP. Same odds as Kevin James winning an Oscar.
