Warriors still favored to win NBA Finals despite being down 2-1 to Raptors

Warriors, Raptors, NBA Finals

Despite the Toronto Raptors leading the NBA Finals series 2-1, fans are still not convinced that the Canada-based team can beat the Golden State Warriors for the championship.

Odds from BetOnline.ag shows that the reigning two-time defending champions are still heavily favored to hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy when all is said and done.

Series Outcome odds
Golden State in 6 +300
Golden State in 7 +300
Toronto in 5 +400
Toronto in 6 +450
Toronto in 7 +375

Over the past three games, the Raptors have been really impressive on both ends of the floor, and there is no doubt that they’re giving the Warriors a run for their money. However, Golden State hasn’t played in full strength in the series, as Klay Thompson missed Game 3 due to a hamstring injury while Kevin Durant hasn’t played since the second round of the playoffs because of a calf strain.

Thompson is expected to play in Game 4, while the Warriors are still hoping that Durant will be able to return anytime soon.

A Dubs victory will even the series up at two games apiece, but if the Raptors take Game 4, they will head back to Toronto with a chance to finish their opponents off and win the franchise’s first-ever championship in front of their adoring crowd.

Yes, despite having the advantage in the series, the Raptors are the team with a lot to prove. Beating a hobbling Warriors team in the Finals is their chance, but they can’t relax before they get the job done.
